I'm trying to keep doing this, as I love bass and making them is even better, but I am having serious breathing problems. Background info, I have been a lifelong year-round allergy sufferer. I've been on allergy immunotherapy injections for over ten years, eight shots a month plus prescription and OTC antihistamines. These things help control my day-to-day allergies greatly, but they can only inject me with stuff to beef up my tolerance to pollen, mold, ect. I can't seem to find a doctor willing to shoot me full of sawdust for some reason. :scowl: I've tried wearing dust masks from woodworking stores, I've tried running ShopVacs with the tube thingy near where I'm working as a redneck dust collector, but every time I sand anything or I'm near pretty much any wood being cut / drilled / whatever I start wheezing within minutes and ultimately end up with a migraine and having an allergic asthma attack. As much fun as this all is, health > bass. Ventilated areas, fans or vacuums, masks or just sticking my face in the dust pile I get the same results every single time. Do any of you have suggestions on how to deal with this? I can't keep building if thirty minutes in the shop leaves me popping Benadryl like Pez and falling asleep with an EpiPen under my pillow.
