I used to love being outside! The sun, the trees, the grass -- I loved it all! I loved playing softball, tennis, kickball, any game that would get me out of the house. I also enjoyed camping and hiking and actually hiked around the foothills of Georgia for a week with some friends of mine. However, this love for the outdoors changed when I developed some bad allergies. When I was about 30 or so, I started having allergy and asthma symptoms, which I'd never had before. My coughing and sneezing would get out of control whenever I would go camping or hiking. Activities such as softball and tennis had to be curtailed because I just couldn't stay outside long enough to enjoy these sports. Finally I've gotten to a place where I can't stay outdoors for more than two hours before I feel like my lungs are closing up. The medications the doctor has prescribed have made it a little more manageable, but I've definitely been ham-stringed when it comes to being outdoors. Do you enjoy being out in nature and have you been unable to enjoy it because of allergies or asthma?
