    On the 4th of July, 2006, we woke up to a beautiful day.  The sun was shining, the birds were was just a lovely day.  NASA had a launch scheduled later and, since we lived only 5 miles away, we were looking forward to our first "live and in person"...

    A Few Things

    I have allergies to several things.  Cat dander for one.  It's not too bad, since I happen to own a cat.  But, if she scratches me or I forget to wash my hands after handling her, my eyes get all red & swollen.  Sometimes in other peoples houses if they...

    I had an anaphilactic shok a while ago. It was bad. Then I had to run a few tests and I found out that I'm also allergic to other antibiotics (I don't remember the names right now). Actually, there's just a few families of antibiotics that I can take.

    Strange Allergies

    I am not allergic to many things, but the things I am allergic to are kind of strange... I am severely allergic to the Pertussis vaccine--the one that they used to give to prevent Whooping Cough.  They gave me one (it was a two-part shot, I think) when I was...

    Cigarette Smoke

    which is both a good thing and a bad thing. a good thing because i'm not addicted to them and never will be, and a bad thing for a few different reasons. first, because there are way too many people who smoke, and ambulance bills aren't cheap. and second because i absolutely LOVE...

    More than one cup of coffee and I'm crazy. Like, bipolar crazy. On the day I drink it I get really energetic and bitchy and then the next day I crash and spend hours crying. It's horrible because I really like coffee! I can have a little bit like every other day but any more than...

    Not Sure

    I'm not sure what you call it, but I once went to a swimming pool and came out in a rash. Whatever was in that water gave me an allergic reaction!! I reckon that it'll be from that swimming pool, it doesn't happen anywhere else!! Needless to say, I haven't gone there again...

    Dang Allergies!

    I'm allergic to penicillin and cats.  It's too bad because I love cats too!  I have slight allergies to other pet dander, but it's easily controllable with allergy medication.

    Pain Medicine!!

    I'm allergic to codeine, which drives me crazy, because when I have pain enough to need that stuff, I have to just take Tylenol.  It's not bad unless I have surgery.  I had surgery a couple of years ago, after my allergy developed, (yes, I was not always allergic, but...

    Developed Allergies As An Adult

    I've never had allergies before, but in the last month have had a host of allergic reactions - seemingly out of nowhere, to foods I eat all the time. It started with papaya - one night I had a piece of dried papaya and my mouth swelled up, my arms itched, and my neck puffed up...

    Even chicken stock in soup has been known to make me sick. Its kind of a strange allergy. I have to be really careful, especially when eating Pho at Vietnamese resturaunts as well as soups at other Asian resturaunts. A few times (though not all of the time), I have asked the...

    So Far...

    Aspirin, cats and certain types of mold.  However, I do love both cats and dogs and would be willing to get shots to deal with the allergens because I would like to have a dog and maybe a cat again someday.  I just can't resist them.

    Everything But the Kitchen Sink

    I am allergic to pork, to milk, to metal, to steroids (even inhalers), and a myriad of other things. Most of the time that stuff doesn't bother me because its easy to avoid, but not always. I hate being allergic to metal though, because there is jewelery I would love...
