As a kids I never suffered from allergies. It was quite nice and I considered myself blessed for that. It seems that reign of allergy freedom has left me. :(. Last year I had an incredibly swollen throat, and that was it. So I went to the doc and they did a strep test cause I was convinced that's what it was. (I used to get strep all the time as a kid.) Who thinks of allergies if you've never had 'em? Well the test came back negative. This year around the same time as last year (this past week to be precise) I have had the most difficulty with swallowing again because of a swollen throat. Now you would think I would jump right to the conclusion that this would be the same issue that I had last year and therefore allergies. Nope, I didn't. It wasn't until today that it dawned on me that this is indeed the same experience I had last year. All I have to do now is find some allergy meds that will actually work. Oh man, I better start getting used to thinking like someone who has allergies. Why do these things have to develop as we get older? Let's just hope I don't concoct any allergies to any of my fav foods. Then we'll be in trouble.
