The other day I had an allergy issue. I knew I had some allergies..just not sure what they all were. My lovely little pup was laying in my lap. She does this a lot and loves her cuddle time. Well after awhile my eye started itching and almost swelled shut. It was still a little swelled up the next day as well.
Yes I am coloring my hair but this happened before. Girl gotta look good!
I called the doctor and told him about what happened and he referred me to a allergist to get checked out. I went yesterday. I knew somewhat what they would do, just not what they would test for.
I was pricked and poked so much..it was ridiculous. I got the skin scraping stuff and I got injections of stuff. I had more stuff show up then I thought. My arms were itching the entire time but of course you can not scratch them. The entire time during this a child was next door screaming his head off. I think they were killing him...that's the only explanation I can come up with for the screams he made.
I tested positive for being allergic to a pile of stuff. Dogs, cats, shellfish, maple trees, mold, cockroaches, potting soil and all other kinds of junk. I knew about some of them but not all. Now I have to get special pillow cases, kick my dogs out the bed (yeah right), and avoid a bunch of fun stuff.
I am lucky that it is not more severe and that I only have about 30 things I am allergic to then compared to others. It is minor, so no living in a plastic bubble yet!
