I'm allergic to your family member, will you still be my friend?

I am allergic to a lot of other people's family members.  It is a hard thing to live with and I make accommodations in order to have a normal life.  These family members are cats.  I've never had a cat myself but many of my friends consider them part of their families.  Some people I know consider their pets their children.  There's nothing wrong with that, it's just that their children make my throat start to close up.  I get itchy eyes, stuffy and runny nose, asthma attacks, wheezing, coughing and other fun symptoms. ...more

A Bug Bite or An Allergic Reaction...What is It?

I cannot be the only one…actually, this time I may be close to being the only one, whose son’s ear has mysteriously swollen to two times its normal size literally overnight. One of the hardest parts of being a mom is a sick kid, the common cold that causes a red chapped nose, a stomach bug that causes a horrifying bathroom mess (if your lucky it’s only the bathroom), or a rather peculiar case of earlobe swelling, whatever the infirmity is as a mom I feel my child’s pain (with an added dose of anxiety)....more
