Allergy appointment yesterday
Tuesday, October 18, 2011
So I had my allergy shot extravaganza yesterday. The allergist calls it "Rush" (they try to give 9 shots per arm in order to boost the effectiveness right away. I was able to get all 9 shots in my left arm (that was for dust, mold & cats), but only 4 in my right arm before I started reacting too much (grass, trees & other outdoor stuff). Today, my left arm is all bruised & swollen & my right arm has a welt on it about the size of an egg. Other than that, I feel fine. (my butt doesn't even hurt where I got my steroid shot.)
AND it is finally going to frost tonight, so the allergies should be going away anyway.
They took my blood pressure every 1/2 hr at the dr office yesterday... It was consistently between 102/70 & 104/72. I was pretty pleased with that considering how out of shape I feel right now.
OH! And I found out that drinking black tea can help alleviate asthma symptoms.
So drink up, my fellow asthmatics out there.
On other news, I have started back up on the eating ONLY healthy foods again. I haven't had any Dew since Friday. I bought ALL healthy foods at the grocery store Saturday night & have been strictly following my menus so far. I even have been tracking my food today on Spark. The only problem is that I can't get Matt on the program. I made turkey tenderloin with wild rice & squash in the crockpot last night.... he said it looked gross & refused to even TRY it. He made a wrap instead. HOW RUDE! It hurt my feelings too. At least he still ate healthy, but gee whiz. A grown man should be able to eat anything once, even squash! I am TRYING to help him eat more veggies due to his heart issues, but oh well. He can stick to corn (which I CAN'T eat due to allergy) and carrots. He hates all other veggies. He has been running between 3 & 10 miles 6 nights/week & I've been sitting on my biscuits, so I guess I'll keep my mouth shut.
Well, as always, thanks for letting me vent.. blogging always helps!
