Just went to an allergist and had the irritating scratch tests and about a dozen shots in my arm and it's been confirmed what I've known all my life.

I am allergic to pretty much everything.
The List:

Histamine x2
Mite DF
Bermuda Grass
Timothy Grass
Johnson Grass
KY Bluegrass (and I live in KY!!!! It's everywhere!)
Red Top Grass
Elm Trees
Birch Trees
Ash Trees
Housedust Mix
CATS (I have three and no fucking way I'm getting rid of them, EVER, that's what drugs are for!)
HORSE (Again hello, I live in KY, Horses are like a staple here.)
HAMSTERS (WTF? Yes they tested for this and thank goodness I don't like rodents)
Every Mold they tested for I was positive reaction to it.

No foods or Medication thankfully. But Environmental crap I cannot escape, yup, I am allergic to it.
I've got an order to go in for blood work tomorrow because my reactions to the basic tests were off the charts, Dr. Corbett wants more intensive testing before I start getting shots twice a week for um FOREVER.

I have to give myself three shots a day for diabetes, pardon me while I not rejoice for being a human pincushion. *sigh*

At least they can find it. Mom gets that test and they say - allergic to nothing. Her body doesn't agree with their determination, but of course, if you don't react, allergy shots will be of no use.

Okay bad attempt at trying to make it a little better. Going to go hide in my corner now. ^_^

Wow... That's horrible. I'm sorry! Do the allergic reactions to that stuff hinder you from doing stuff or just to the point of irritation?
Sorry, you have to go through that but that's just how life is though unfortunately. LOVE YOU!

BTW, sel_barton's avatar reminds me of the picture I requested for you to draw me years ago lol

OUTDOORS ARE BAD FOR YOU! That just confirms it really, I always knew nature was out to get people. Damn that nature.

I keed, hope everything is well for you otherwise? My sister in law is allergy heavy too, except hers is a lot of odd allergies, and medication ones too.

Sounds like my brother. He got tested shortly after I got my very first rabbit, and was allergic to everything they tested him for except birds and fish. Of course this included rabbits, and the only thing he had a stronger reaction to was horses. He immediately told my parents we weren't getting rid of Troy-bun, though, so we managed to get by with lots and lots of vacuuming and no direct physical contact. Petting a horse, however, could potentially kill him. :P

Now he's married to an animal lover who grew up on a farm. Good thing she likes birds, because that's all they can have. ;)
