Very odd occurrence at the bee hives yesterday
« on: February 19, 2010, 11:38:44 PM »
Not sure how to explain what happened.  I have been getting over a very bad virus, and still have a runny nose. In fact I made plans to visit the bees yesterday with this women from the 4H Club, so I could not cancel this appointment even though my nose was running like crazy from early morning.

I mean blow the nose, stop and blow the nose again and again.  This is how bad my nose was running. Took claritin and sudafed to help the matter, but nothing worked.

So I am extremely worried now because I have my bee suit on and I am wondering how the heck I am going to check out 4 beehives in this condition. Well one last blow into the tissue, place veil on and start opening up the hives. Well it took about 1 hour to check out the hives because I was also teaching this women as we did the inspection, so it was going along very slowly.

During this time period that I had the hives open, well my nose completely stopped running. I mean nothing, not a sniffle.

Soon as I closed up the hives, walked away and took off my veil and suit there we go again. Nose running constantly the remainder of the day.

So why did my nose stop running when I had the hives open???  I know you are probably all laughing by now, but I am so curious about this. Why did my nose stop running completely when I was working the hives??

i'm sorry, i'm not laughing....really.... :evil:

.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

Wish I knew what to tell you about that.
Can tell you how to doctor your sniffles.

Take a large cup and fill about 3/4 full of tap water. Add 1/4 cup of concentrated lemon juice. Microwave for about a minute. (coffee hot). Now add about 1/4 cup of honey. Stir till honey is dissolved. You may have to adjust the juice and honey amount depending on the size of your cup, to your taste. Reheat a few more seconds, to coffee hot. Drink in slow sips and enjoy.

A few years ago my Wife and I had the cold bug that nothing over the counter would touch.
The Honey/lemon mix did the trick. I take a cup about every day.

I found out I could not chew tobacco while wearing the veil, when time came to empty the tobacco juice I forgot I had the veil on. :shock: :) :roll:doak

I think it is a psycological reaction in you/our/my own bodies, which we cannot control. but unconciously kicks in when needed. I have what I have always called a (bad, bad, bad) sinus problem for 77 years, whereas my nose runs most of the time constantly during winter weather, severe temperature, humidity change. But for some unknown reason when certain occaisions arose whereas it would be impossible for me to wipe the dribble, for some reason it miraculosly dried up until the task was over.  I just wish I could conciously control it, stead of it happening unconciously.
I am my own biggest critic!

I can't comment as to whether you are crazy or not  ... :-D  

But when I have a stuffy nose and I'm stationary, it bugs me.  When I get up and move around it immediately clears up and my nose is fine.  I wonder if the movement and the way you were going through the hives changed the way you breathed and cleared it up temporarily.  Plus your mind is occupied so it doesn't bother you either.

Sounds like hallucinations and/or a stupor like condition.   :shock:

No idea how it works, but as a get-rich-quick scheme maybe you should bottle the air from your hives and sell it as a cold remedy.

Honestly, I'd say it's adrenalin.  I have had similar things happen while hunting.  Runny nose and steam when I exhale.  When game would come into range, the runny nose completely stops and my breath disappears.  Once the situation passes though, especially if game has been gotten, steam pours from my breath and the faucet that was my nose opens back up.

OH that makes sense to me. At first I felt stupid for posting this, but now I see that there could be a scientific reason for this happening.

That is amazing.  My bee suit has the opposite effect.  A minute after I put it on, my nose starts to itch.   ;)
