Outdoor allergies, why do you torment me so?

I have allergies. I'm not sure to what, but I'm assuming it's something like pollen or mold since they seem to only really get bad outdoors. I often go to the park to run, and usually am just fine. Yesterday, however, as soon as I entered the park I felt my nose acting up. I was right, and my allergies went crazy as soon as I left the park; I couldn't focus on anything, and my day was essentially ruined. This has only happened a couple of times before in this particular park. My question is - why are my allergies usually okay when I enter this park, but once in a while go completely nuts? What can I try to keep this from happening again. [more inside]

It's not all in my head!

There is a mold or mildew problem under the kitchen sink in my new apartment. My allergies are a curse that cause me to detect smells that normal people can't, and my landlord can't smell it and thinks I might be crazy. [more inside]
