I blame the heat wave. It's sunny and low 90's which I know isn't THAT bad, but we're wimps in Colorado because it's mostly pretty nice around here, and we usually get an afternoon rainstorm. So I'm lazing around the house waiting for clouds.
I did manage to make it to the allergist's for my bi-weekly allergy shot today. I've had to scale down the amount of antigen in the shots because of all the seasonal pollen currently floating about. It's like getting a double dip. I don't think it was scaled down enough this week, because my left arm is all puffy now. Here, see? *plugs in webcam*
See the swelling? I've indicated the bulginess of my usually scrawny rear upper arm. Geej, the shot girl, says to let her know if the injection site swells to larger than a quarter. It's about dollar bill size now.
Sometimes I wonder if the stuff is even working, but I think it has had some positive effect. Patience is not one of my virtues, and I think I'm entering my second year of shots. I mentioned to Geej that I've been noticing the allergens floating about as I get symptoms when out cutting the grass and such.
"A lot of our patients wear a mask or just don't cut their grass. They have someone else do it", she informed me.
Well, there's something. I do cut the grass. But I don't smoke it.
