To be honest, I'm not 100% sure. And these days, people can be allergic to so many things, that it's almost impossible to find out without incredibly extensive testing!



But in my twenties, I noticed that I started to have sneezing fits in the summer, which I naturally thought was probably hayfever. But it's not. I don't find that a high pollen count affects me much - my allergy is to things like dust and animal fur; and probably other things I don't know about!

Ever since my early twenties, I've taken antihistamines for what the doctor told me is "non-specific rhinitis". Which basically means that my nose gets inflamed by... well, stuff. Non-specific stuff.

I've tried leaving the tablets off periodically - I used to be able to stop taking them in the winter months, but I can't do that any more, so I'm on them all year around. And even then, there are times I still have the most horrendous sneezing fits. Seriously, they're scary, and really tiring. And if they happen when I'm driving - not nice.

I suspect that it's been a contributary factor towards the late-onset asthma. I was reading up on it a while back, and apparently, people who have the sort of allergy I have are several times more likely to develop asthma in adulthood than people without them.

I've had the odd food allergy as well, but they seem to come and go. Bananas can upset my stomach, as can avocados - which is annoying, because I like both of them!

Other than that... I think I'm allergic to year 9s.
