I'm trying to psych myself up to go last farmers market this morning. I love the farmer's market. It has been my main source of safe food since the late spring and I'm planning to buy as much as possible today, for as long as I can last.
For the last 2 weeks this has become a danger zone for me since fall is here and everyone is decorating with dried corn. I reacted to the corn in the air 2 weeks ago and spent the rest of the day in a benadryl haze, skipped it last week and really, really, really want to go this week.
I'm thinking about wearing a particulate filtering mask to see if it helps, but I'm also wondering how crazy I am willing to look just to stock up on winter squash. Pretty crazy is my guess. Stupid corn.
Update: I'm willing to look like a sick duck to stay safe. The particulate mask worked wonderfully. It has an odd, duck bill shape and may have potential as a Halloween costume. Only one person asked about the mask, but she is a friend and already knows all about the allergy.
