Several months ago, completely out of the blue, I began having an allergic reaction when I was cutting up jalapeño peppers. I was gasping for breath. I never had a problem before except coughing when they were stir fried. It was the craziest thing and now I don’t allow anyone to prepare them near me. I also can’t be around the residue if it’s sitting around. It was a pretty scary feeling.

I used to have a similar reaction to cats, I had to take benadryl if I was around them. But, when forced to live with two cats for two months (long story involving my divorce) I became tolerant and now I've had cats myself for about 20 years.
