Be careful about that, because sensitivity to it can be cumulative. I used to be like that, but several years ago, I accidentally crawled around in a patch of it. It was covering my forearms, and I had to take steroids to prevent it from driving me insane.
I try to stay away from it and then I go to the doctor and get a shot because I've got it all over my face and my eye is swelling shut.
“There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.” ~ John Rogers
I think i've grown imune I use to get it when I was a kid and have walked through it in the near past and been fine. though I don't roll around it. I don't roll around on the ground that much to begin.
