As you may know I have allergies. I've had them since I was born, and often when I had an allergy attack it would trigger an asthma attack. Always a fun time. I spent most of first grade in a hospital because they were so bad and I kept getting pneumonia.
I've been getting allergy shots again (I had them from age 7-16) since January and things have gone well up to last week. On Thursday I had a systemic reaction to my allergy shot and have felt like death since. I spent all of Friday sneezing and wheezing. I got blisters in my mouth.... actually we don't need to go into details....let's just say I'm gross.
So what happens? I got to go to the doctor on Saturday and given a ton of medication. Didn't work. Sunday my Doctor checked in on me and was trying to come up with a game plan for my next shot (shutters.) Not too excited for that. My body is still convinced that it is being attacked so it is on high alert. I got to send all weekend in the house sleeping. I went out and got some movies to watch, but then went back to bed. I tried to eat some honey (yes. not something I should do right now...) but that made the wheezing worse.
What am I allergic to?
- Hay (Timothy is the worst...don't know why)
- (all trees...this will be easier)
- Grass (touching it)
I could go on for PAGES. Let's not. Luckily I am NOT allergic to bees, nuts, or anything else that might kill me. I think I would rather feel like total shit than have severe life threatening allergies. It does make me sad that I missed the gelding clinic, I haven't seen my horse in a week, I couldn't work at the GWB and I'm sure that was an inconvience (I told her Friday night, but still.) and I'm bored out of my mind. Boo. Still sneezing (I really think I broke a record) and still wheezing. The things we go through for love.
