In a blink of an eye, life can change.
Over the past few years my health has been up and down.
Lots of doctors visits and always diagnosed with nada...but yet I feel icky everyday.
This all started about 3 years ago, so I just assumed it was stress and tired that comes with being a mom.
That is until I ended up in the hospital last Christmas. From that point on everyday of my life was a guessing game of what caused an allergic reaction with me in the E.R.
Cut to a year later and test after test still being done. All with results of nothing is wrong with you...you just have too much stress.
I wasn't excepting this as an answer. I kept fighting and finally yesterday, answers were given.
I sat thru 61 allergy tests and found that I was allergic to 55 out of those 61 tested.
Highest on the list is my Kitties...This makes me most depressed and sad. I have owned cats since I was 5 years old. I NEVER had any problems, so I thought. Apparently, I have always been slightly allergic with the allergy growing year by year until my kitty bit me last xmas eve.
Sending me 4 hours later to the E.R.Not only my kitties are the cause...I was tested for every grass,tree and weed grown in my neck of the woods and I am highly allergic to all. Hmmm, see this means I was never meant to live here.
and the second worst is Dust Mites, not want a vintage loving girl wants to hear at all! This list goes on and on, with every animal hair, dog, and so on.
So apparently the only way to live is by getting a shot every week for 5 years to build up my immunity to these things. I am so scared of ending up in that hospital again from a kitty love bite...How can I turn my babies away. I have had them for 11 years, I am their mama.
I just want to know how this happens, how can you cuddle and love them one day and the next you're highly allergic to a thing you have loved all of your life.
I would love to hear from those who have to deal with severe allergies and how you live around the things you love but are allergic to. Please give me some hope that things will be okay.
