I received an encouraging email the other day from a regular reader, Dave, who asked if I’m always as upbeat about allergies and asthma and dealing with them as my blog portrays. I replied, yes basically this blog reflects who I am most of the time.
Traveling, leaving the safety of my apartment, my neighborhood, my city-that’s when I get a little panicky. Still. I’ve talked about that a few times on this blog. Even when I’ve traveled to familiar places like the Hamptons, I’m nervous about it.
But I go. I force myself to go. And to enjoy! Yes, I have to remind myself to do that sometimes.
After years of giving in to my fears about traveling, as an adult, I force myself to make the effort. So for this trip I’ve already gotten a few tips from some of you out there. I’ve checked out the possible yoga spots. I have my dog eared copy of Edith Wharton's The Age of Innocence. I did some homework on restaurant using this handy online site, Tablehound.com; it has a nut-free search option-super cool. The hotel is dog-free. I've packed trip snacks. My meds are up to date. I’m good to go.
Yay, summer weekend trip!
