I had an appointment with the allergy doctor today. I’m not sure why he won’t give blood results over the phone? He came into the room with a smile…again much different than our first meeting. He sits down and flips open my chart and says “all of the blood work looks good, there doesn’t seem to be any abnormalities.” “I passed all of them again?” I asked. “Yes, so now let’s talk about treatment.” “Treatment for what?” I exclaimed. “For the Idiopathic angioedema.” He looked at me like I was an idiot. This is a symptom not a cause, but again….I am not a doctor. When I said I wasn’t interested in medication he had the same look on his face the Hillary did when she found out she lost the election. Just the initial look, before the emotions took over. I truly hope I never have to go back there again. Why in the world would I take a pill for something I can control with diet? It makes no sense to me.
It is time though….I need to start experimenting. Today I had a tiny bag of Stacey’s pita chips…plain. I have had these before and was lucky enough to not have a reaction. I guess we will see what happens tomorrow. It will be nice to have a crunchy snack if this works out.
Today was a pretty hectic day! I can’t even tell you how many times I was up and down Market St. I had to run to where my brother works to pick up my EZ pass transponder, drop off his wife’s essential oils and pay him the difference. Then I drove to the shop where the lady makes the most amazing powdered incense. I love it so much! Then I took the Girl to her yearly doctor’s appointment and then I had to see that allergist quack to get my results. We left there and headed down to the university because I need to verify things on the Girl’s financial aid. We got there at exactly the right time! There was one person in front of us and no one behind us when we got there and when we left there was a huge line behind us.
We stopped at two more places and then we were home. I got my food prepping done and a phone call in to my cousin who had a crazy dream last night and wanted my input. Then I was off to a writing workshop…again, downtown. I really liked this class. It’s been so long since I took /they offered a writing workshop, I hope they offer more. I am usually a more hesitant sharer but not tonight…I had no problem sharing.
The booth at the renaissance faire had a bunch of crickets and grasshoppers too. Grasshoppers mean “an uncanny leap forward” in my Animal Speak book but crickets aren’t in there so I don’t know what it means but they sure are popping up everywhere.
I feel less stressed today than I did yesterday and Monday so I am hoping that means things are falling into place. I’m pretty sure the Girl understands that if it’s not on my list…it’s not getting done. Fingers crossed this all works out…Zia
