    Maybe you are allergic to salt water. Is there any salt water around where you live?

    Fortunately neither of us suffer from allergies.

    I do feel sorry for those that do suffer.

    Cruising is a wonderful way to enjoy retirement.

    Beryl - he said I had two ear infections and an upper respiratory infection. He also tested me for strep because my throat was extremely red, but the test came back negative. All I know is that during the day, when I was out of my cabin I was fine...but in the mornings, and by the time I got down to dinner, I could barely talk, was out of breath and had a nagging cough - when I tried to speak.

    It was Wednesday night that a feather came out of one of my pillows and I realized what the problem was. The cabin stewardess changed out all of our pillows to foam, and with the visit to the doctor that day, I was good to go.

    I've been to the allergist, had the punch test and know exactly what I am allergic to. Tons of indoor/outdoor stuff - feathers being one of them. So is my son...I had our stewardess take the feather pillows out of their cabin before the boarded for the 2nd week.

    Unfortunately Sudafed and Nasal Spray are must packing items for me. I have the same problem with feather pillows Corky. That's why I pack my own foam pillow when traveling. The small contour ones work well and they can be bundled down with a bungie cord to save space.

    "Do your allergies clear up when you are out at sea?"


    Only my allergy to wurk.

    I have, on occasion, found my allergy to fleas increases ... But then it's just a matter of getting her on the duck-a-pault and that problem's solved too.

    Iluvcruzin - are you talking about the small contour pillows that you see in the travel aisle at the stores, or at the airport? If so, is yours a solid piece of foam or the kinds with all of the beads in it? I might have to invest in one. Thnx for the heads-up.

    I've seen many people with those on a plane, but never thought about using one to sleep with at hotels/cruises, etc...just for the plane.

    Allergies - I am currently living on...an Aleve-D, a claratin and prescription nose spray...spring will be over soon though. LOL
