So, I'm driving into town yesterday afternoon. All of a sudden I am enveloped in a cloud of barley dust. The tractor was harvesting right next to the road when I came by. Of course my windows were open, it was a rare warm day.

I knew right away that I would be on trouble, I could taste the barley in my mouth, and had no water in the car.

I get home about an hour later. I'm just waiting to see what happens. It took about 4 hours and hit like a freight train. It literally knocked the breath right out of me and my gut was twisting and cramping. My wonderful husband starts really freaking out now. This was one of my most severe attacks in a year or so. He starts stuffing papyra enzymes and pepto down my throat. The severe debilitating pain lasted a total of 45 minutes.

The rest of the night and now today my gut feels bruised but not reacting anymore. I think most will know about that bruised feeling.

A word of caution, when driving by fields this fall season. Keep windows closed and air vents closed also.

Be afraid, be very afraid :ph34r:

Around me I'm more likely to get "cottoned"...but I get your point.

That truly sucks.
