I had a smattering of allergy (skin) testing done on Tuesday afternoon and boy did it wipe me out and make me feel bad/worse for two days. Found out I am very allergic to oak and feathers and moderately allergic to dust and all sorts of weeds, trees and grasses. At first I didn't think we had many oak trees around here, but I was mistaken. I bought a new pillow since I couldn't be certain if mine had any feathers in it. I looked at mattress covers and didn't want to pay $100 hoping I can find an online deal. I think all the packing, repacking of my Mom's things that had been sitting around for years really stirred up the dust and into my head. Luckily I have some wonderful essential oils- Lemon, Lavender and Peppermint that I can swipe across my nose and forehead and even make into a capsule and take several times a day to help with allergies. I really don't want allergy shots and may elect to use the new allergy drops they are offering.
