Allergy attacks

Filed under: Health, My Life and Rants — Scottie @ 14:54

Sorry I am well late today.  Not feeling well.   I have an appointment tomorrow with my allergist for all new testing.   So for a week I have been off my allergy medications.   They were not helping much but they were helping. I started having allergy attack symptoms this morning about 3 AM.  By 5 AM I was in full blown allergy attack.  Sneezing, snot pour out, eyes watering, and other things far more unpleasant.  I have not been doing much today.   I did post a couple things from my IPad but to tell the truth reading was not high on my list today.   Going to try to get a few things posted then lay back down.   Loves to all, nothing a bit of rest and new medications wont solve.   Besides everyone needs a good clean out every year or so.  Hugs


  1. First … so sorry you’re not feeling well. I sometimes think allergies make us more “sick” than some other ailments!

    Second … while I most definitely enjoy your posts and comments, sometimes my inbox gets a bit overwhelmed with messages from Scottie! So, in that respect, your brief absence has given me a chance to spend more time on some other emails. (No offense!) I realize that with everything that’s going on these days (never a dull moment with tRumpsky in charge), it can often be difficult to keep up — and you do keep us informed — so thanks for that.

    Take care of yourself. And keep the Kleenex box close-by. 🤧

  2. As I had heavy allergies myself I wish you a quick come-around. I had to take cortison for 12 years, and as the allergy had come unnoticed, it vanished slowly after 12 years nearly unnoticed; so there is a bit of hope.

    • I use to be bothered really bad and took shots for years. Then like you I got better. But this last 6 months I have been getting more and more debilitated by them. Hugs

      • allergy is the plage that continues to influence more and more lifes. As I do remember, Itching takes away sleep as well as concentration – just as hurt does.
        And as I remember just to well/bad, the only med that helps , Is cortison – with all its sideffects.
        Scotttie, I really do hope that your doctors find ways to help you without you getting “more and more debilitated”. And I wish you heaps of patience, which I know is needed know badly for you to have.
        Really all the best my friend and try not to think of it, as often as you can.
        big hugs

        • Thank you Miles. I know you worry, but please know I can endure. For me I have three levels of allergic reactions. For some I break out in hives and blotches that are itch and miserable. For others I get allergic rhinitis, which is what I have most often. It feels like you have a cold. I get sneezing, nasal congestion, runny nose, itchy nose, itchy eyes, red water eyes, postnasal drip which runs down the back of your throat, cough and frequent throat clearing.,feeling tired and lethargic, and lastly dark circles under my eyes. This was how I first learned I had allergies as I went to the doctor for a cold that had lasted two months. It was not a cold just very bad allergies. The last and most deadly type of allergy I have is a few food items. Seafood such as shellfish is deadly to me, iodine and medical sulfa, and some insect stings such as bees. For these I have to be very careful and I have been hospitalized by accidentally eating shellfish. People put it in stuff and don’t tell you because they like it and think they are being nice. I have two Epinephrine injectors I am suppose to have with me especially when eating out, but I never do. I have only needed it once, it did maybe save my life, but a couple years ago I posted how much they jumped in price. If you don’t use them they go bad. They were a simply inexpensive way to save your life. Now they cost between 600 and 1200 dollars, and that is a lot of money for something you many not use and have to replace twice a year.

          Thank you again Miles, You are a good friend and you have a large loving heart. I am one of the lucky ones in my country. I have insurance due to my husband. If we were not married legally in this country I wouldn’t have his insurance. With out that I wouldn’t be able to get the medical care I need and would die in a few years. The religious zealots want to take this away from us. With all my health problem I enjoy life. I do not want this grand adventure to end. Thanks again my friend. I have to check out the blog, seems a lot of comments happening. Hugs
