RE: Allergies...

Anyone who goes into my bedroom MUST change their clothing in the laundry
room (depositing them in the washer immediately) before they can go into my
room.  My grandboy knows the routine and he actually understands why.

Yup, tried allergy shots.  In the 70's I took them for 7 years or so and
then again in the late 90's for 5 years.  But, the shots were only for
pollens and for dusts.  The allergist refused to give me serum for any pets,
including cats.  I've learned to live with it.

I'm glad your son is O.K. with his allergies.  It's just something us
allergic folks have to adjust to.

I suppose you've tried allergy shots, huh? Probably with such a serious
allergy as yours, the desensitization process isn't very successful,
which is too bad in your case since it seems to place such restrictions
on you. How do you do when people who live with cats (who if they are
anything like mine have decided all my clothing makes perfect beds for
them) come to visit you?

I'm usually up earlier. It's about the only "quiet time" I can get.
And,<br>yeah, I do stay as far from cats as possible. My older daughter
has 3 cats<br>and still gets offended I won't step one foot in her
house. She seems to<br>think its all my own mind playing tricks on me,
but the reaction even<br>happened post a funeral when a family member
asked Bill and me to come back<br>to the house for a lunch. I had no
clue there were cats in the house until<br>the eyes started swelling
shut. UGH! <br><br>I guess the worst part is that there are so many
folks I'd like to visit<br>that I can't. And I even like cats! I used to
get sick every time I'd go<br>visit my mother's biological dad's house.
They always had cats and a litter<br>of kittens. We didn't figure it out
until I was an adult. When I think of<br>all the antibiotics that I took
each time after a visit, it makes me worry<br>that when I need an
antibiotic the most, I won't have one that will work for<br>me. Of such
is life.<br><br>Blessings,<br>Bonnie<br><br>PS Have a safe trip home
after your shift!<br><br>-----Original Message-----<br>From:

morning Bonnie! Had no idea anyone from the list was awake
and<br>on-line at this hour of the day. It's only a little after 5 a.m.
here of<br>course, my night is almost over!!! Sounds like you must stay
as far away<br>from cats as possible...that kind of allergic reaction
sounds like<br>positive misery. So far, I'm incredibly lucky to have no
allergies to<br>much of anything...my son has an allergy to stinging
insects (not of the<br>anaphylatic type, just makes him pretty miserable
and scares me half to<br>death!).<br><br><br><br>Melody, IA (Z
