For those of us with severe nickel allergies... going out in public can be rough. We're hit with a thousand obstacles and when you're like me and you react like poison ivy... the world can be a bit scary.
To demonstrate what a day in the life of nickel allergy is like, I took photos during my commute to work and while I was at work. Every time I came across nickel, I snapped a quick photo. The quickness resulted in some blurry photos (like while taking a photo while going through a revolving door), but you'll get the point. Just think of it as being "in the action" with me. We have to think quickly on our feet every day and that involves thinking about our allergies at the same time!
After I get on the train, I head on home and prepare to do it all over again the next day.
As you can see... developing this allergy in 2009 was quite the journey. No longer could I walk carefree... anywhere in public... but just like anything else, I've started to get used to it and I don't think about it much anymore. I get a routine down and glide through it easily every day :-)
