Over the past month, I’ve made some major adjustments in my life. I’m laying off the antihistamines and nasal spray and developing a new and improved strategy for allergy relief.
You see, I’ve started wearing surgical masks — the kind doctors wear in the operating room or on Halloween when they go trick-or-treating. They’re the same masks people put on when they ride the subway during flu season. In fact, they were the fashion rage in Manhattan during the Asian flu, bird flu and swine flu scares.
