Why don't we call a truce and jab one of those needles in my eye, please?

Um, can I get a free pass?
My week just can't get any shittier.
Co-pays for the 13 steroid lotions prescribed
for unexplainable itchy arms ....... $130
Zyrtec, Allegra double dose, Nasal sprays
and special skin cleanser ....... $123.22
Learning that while I'm allergic to 43/58 allergens,
RED WINE IS STILL A-OK! ........ Priceless!!

AAACK! I remember having that test done when I was a kid - allergy shots every week for 3 years.

It sucked - BIG TIME! good luck with that.

yeah ... if I have allergies, I don't know it, don't want to know it, and don't care. I'll sniffle, sneeze, itch, contract, expand, WHATEVS!!! As long as I don't have to be stuck with 60 different needles.

I hope the rest of the week is bettah for ya!

wow! 48/60...isn't that like 80%. Without even studying for anything. Very impressive.

on a lighter note, looks like you are ready for acupuncture. I believe they put less needles in you than that and it is supposed to make you feel better. Right now- I'd try anything.

Maybe they can dip the needles in red wine before they do it. Either that or just stay drunk all the time.

Ouch! Sometimes it does feel like the world is piling up! Hugs to you.

Ouch indeed! I had one of those done several years ago, and they also tested like 30 some odd things on my forearms. I walked around for 2 weeks trying to hide my forearms in the summer because I seriously looked like some kind of junkie with really bad track marks. And all this to discover I was only allergic to one thing...RAGWEED!! Damn doctor and his boredom!

At least you now have a valid reason for all that red wine you're going to be drinking!
