Who knew one could become allergic to swimsuits?
Did I get your attention? Yes, I’m a loser who is becoming more and more sensitive to nylon threading used in swimsuits and underwear. It’s to the point where I go to the beach wearing shorts and a tank top. I hate that. I’m not little anymore but I still love to swim. I want to wear my swimsuit so my kids know I’m okay with who I am and I can’t. Well kids, I am okay with who I am. I’m just becoming more and more sensitive to everything. I can’t reapply sunscreen because it burns everywhere I place it. I can’t walk outside when it’s windy because it burns too.
UGH!! I’m getting frustrated as I get older. More cranky because of all these new sensitivities that I didn’t use to have. Does this mean I’m becoming my mother? Except she didn’t have these sensitivities. So who am I becoming? Who in my gene pool gave this lovely allergic to swimsuits thing to me? There’s no one to blame. Not that it matters. Just another thing to get used to. I’m grateful. I’m not sick. My kids are well. There are so many other things worse that could be happening to me. I get that. I’m just frustrated with not being able to wear a swimsuit. Wonder if I can find someone who advertises that their swimsuits and underwear are nylon thread free? I figured this out first when my friends and I was doing water aerobics. I’d go a few days in a row and then have to stop going and let everything recover. Bummer! How about you, do you have any allergies?
