i am allergic to every single injectable allergen the doctors have to test for. The last time I was tested I went into shock and had to spend the day there while they watched me.
Since then, I have worked very hard to desensitize myself by exposing myself to allergens for short periods of time over the years. I am now doing well and can cut the grass again and I have cats living in my house and a dog.
Thanks to Advil, I can combat just about anything that comes my way if I do get allergic reactions, and it even seems to work better than antihistamines most of the time. I've thrown out all prescription drugs and just take that and vitamins and I am healthier than I've ever been. I also get migraines and only use Advil for those too.
Keeping your life and body as simple as possible really makes a difference.
I guess I experiment a lot in certain phases because I like to find what works--and then I do stick with it. This has been another experimental stage for me, so I will probably use whatever I find has been best pretty soon and just go off to my corner and establish a routine. I always like to know that I've at least tried most of the options if I'm going to experiment, since it really isn't something I'm known to do on a regular basis. I'm usually just too busy to make it a priority like I have been lately. Starting next week, I'll be far too busy to deal with all this again, so I was pretty anxious to try what I could while there was time.
I'm grateful for all the help and advice I've gotten here over the past few weeks. I've learned a lot.
