A Bit Of Trivia

Here is a little tidbit about me you might not know; I am allergic to cats, dogs, and dust mites. Severely.

It started two years ago when I got some mosquito bites and scratched them like most people do. What I didn't know was that my scratching-of-mosquito-bites limit had been reached and I got cellulitis along with some other undesirable side effects. So, my doctor sent me to allergist. (He was the most adorable, mad scientist, Italian guy I've ever seen.) The test for cats, dogs, and dust mites showed that I was severely allergic to those things. Which was interesting since I never had any other symptoms (i.e. runny nose, sneezing, wheezing, inability to drive by Handel's without stopping. Oh, wait. Maybe I did have that one.) I could tell the little allergist was very curious about this and even mentioned sending me for an X-Ray or CT. He decided against but I almost offered because I could tell he really wanted to.

So, that's pretty much my medical history.

Anyway, the allergies have been acting up recently, because . . . you know.

But today my doctor gave me a shot of Deca-something and it started working this afternoon. So that's pretty exciting.

Other than being a full-time zookeeper, there's not much else happening. There are some things in the works, but you'll have to wait until I have more details for that info.

Seacrest out.
