Ever since moving to Oz I have had terrible allergies. I am allergic to the major types of grass in the area as well as dust, mold and heaps of other stuff. (I've been tested) Every single morning I awake to the sneezes and I even keep a box of kleenex by my pillow I use them so much! It's a good thing we have a king bed or Rick might have to sleep on the floor to make room for my stuff. Usually inclusive of a phone (people seem to love to call us in the middle of the night?), kleenex, a book, an asthma inhaler and at the moment cough drops. Rick says to me "Have you got everything you need?" ha ha ha too funny. So anyways, the allergies are BAD.
Then one night after falling asleep on the couch, I got up and trekked into bed and didn't feel allerged at all, but within a minute no joke of being in my bed I started feeling that twingy sneezy nose feeling. Hmmm? I was starting to wonder. That next early morning Rick tells me he ended up face down in the mattress somehow and he was feeling all stuffy and dry in his nose and that the mattress smelled really dusty. That's it! Well, I endured another 5 days and yesterday a company came out and sanitized all of our mattresses for like $165! This is what was sleeping with us...
Bed bugs all right. People, do you know that you're not sleeping alone? Disgusting. I'm getting ours done every 6 months for sure. Candace has recently started complaining of asthmatic symptoms and I was shocked to read on this website that some 90% of asthma in children is caused by dust and dust mites? Sick. I can't believe we have been breathing this crap in on a daily basis. Anyways, here's a link to a video you can watch that is sure to gross you out!
This is what a dust mite looks like and they are only 1/2 mm in size
