I went to the allergist on Tuesday. I am allergic to cat pelt and hair. I am really allergic to dog dander. This really sucks because I was planning on having dogs and cats when I get older. I might to have outside dogs and cats. If I do that, I need a good open space like the farm house out in Three Forks. I am not allergic to horses, gerbils, hamsters, rabbits, or feathers. I might get some little pets for inside the house. I don't know. It's a good thing that I switched from becoming a vet to a chiropractor because I don't want to me around things which my body doesn't like. It really sucks though.

I am allergic to a mold called hormodendrum. This means that I really need to clean the bathroom because I have some mold growing in there. It's because I don't clean that often and there isn't a fan where the shower sits. I am also allergic to a grass and tree mix. So, this makes sense why I have a sports induced asthma. It also might be why I have to breathe more heavily when exercising. People has always said to run where you can still talk. However, I've always couldn't do that. In my second trimester, I learned that I have a large lung capacity someone my age and height. That could be from playing the clarinet and singing when I was younger.

Now, I found out that I am allergic to codfish, crab, pecans, almonds, Brazil nuts, chicken, green peas, tomatoes, cantaloupe, watermelon, cherry, peach, celery, and sunflower seeds/oil. I am very sure that I am allergic to ginger too. Probably I am allergic to other things too. At least I got the basics out of the way. Now, I can work out the others by slowly reintroducing me to things. Tomatoes, peaches, chicken, and celery will be hard to avoid because they are in a whole bunch of processed foods. I now have a really good reason to cook for myself. I want a rice cooker so I can make myself some good sticky rice. I miss my Dad's good Japanese rice. Minute rice isn't really cutting it for me. I am also going to find out if I have a gluten intolerance through a blood test.

They tested me with all of these different substances by putting them on a white plastic applicator with eight spots where the substances can be applied. Then, the nurse rocked the applicator laterally and medially on both deltoids. She rocked four applicators on each deltoid. Some reactions had only wheals, others had wheals with pseudopods. The four that had pseudopods were bigger than the other ones except for the histamine. The reactions looked like mosquito bites and itched. These foods might be the reasons for my migraines and foods getting stuck in my throat. The allergist said if food still gets stuck after a month of avoiding these foods, he will refer me to another doctor because I might have esophillic esophagitis.

My Body Likes to Make Life Hard

So, I'm tired and have swollen cheeks. I think that one of the antibiotics is making drowsy because I napped for five hours today. I am still tired and somewhat lightheaded and tingly. My body doesn't like me. My doctor diagnosed me with cellulitis that turned into an abscess near my anus this morning. So, I skipped school to get that taken care of. At least the doctor didn't have to lance and pack it. Now, I am a little nervous because I haven't studied yet for my public health test which is tomorrow. Ugg. School is hard and likes to stress me out. Plus, it really sucks when one's body likes to play games and screw around.

So, I made Asian Turkey Burgers last night. When I ate a little of it last night, everything was OK. When I ate two of the patties tonight, my cheeks swelled up pretty good. I might be allergic to garlic or gluten free bread crumbs. I really doubt that I am allergic to the turkey, the ginger, or the soy sauce. I just want to get to the bottom of this because reacting to food that I cook really sucks. At least, I am losing weight. I lost 10 pounds since I have been cooking for myself. Probably, it's because I am eating much less because I don't have that much to eat. Last week, I slightly reacted to the meatloaf and the Sweet and Sour Chicken. I didn't like the Teriyaki Beef, so I didn't have that much to eat. So, I have been going hungry much more often.

The other things that I cooked last night were Amish Breakfast Casserole and Parmesan Chicken. I haven't ate the chicken yet. I think that I am safe with that one. I am pretty sure that I am safe with the Casserole because I ate some last night with no reactions. At least, McDonald's shakes are really good. I know that I don't react to any of those. :) Ya, screw the gluten free diet. I am still going to eat healthy though and avoid things because I like losing weight. I haven't lost weight in a few years. This is the first without counting calories too.
