Bugs Crawling On My Skin : The Invisible Hives Urticaria

I am sitting here attempting not to claw at my skin. Writing is helping as it’s distracting my mind, and keeping my fingers occupied. If I was of lesser mental awareness, I’d likely be writing this swearing that there were in fact millions of little bugs crawling over, under, and within my skin. Alas, I [cont…]

The Sky Is Falling! The Sky Is Falling! (experiencing "Impending Doom")

It’s funny to me the ways that words on a page express themselves in real life. Nothing is more funny in this way than allergic reactions. It’s one thing to read that allergic reactions can include things like headaches, nausea, runny nose, congestion, edema, and so on.. and it’s quite another to experience them. Sometimes [cont…]

I started a new job and keep gaining weight (read allergy swelling and allergy induced type 2 diabetic issues) which I need to get under-control but haven’t been able to. In the meantime, I’ve been [cont…]

Dec 172010

Last night was an eye opener for me. I’d always (well since the food allergy discovery) known that eating my allergens caused my digestion to halt to a very slow crawl, causing me to experience such lovely things as reflux, gas, indigestion, and diarrhea. However, since having AAT treatments during 2009, I have developed a [cont…]

Nov 292010

Well its a “Happy Day After Your Reaction” for me today. First, I woke up after a solid 12 hours of dead sleep. I missed most of the morning due to that, and still feel like I was hit by a truck. Since I’d missed several hours in which I could have been productive, I [cont…]
