Ok. I need advice on two matters.
1. Next week I am having a procedure done. Rapid Immuno Therapy. I have been keeping the fact that I am a total freak from ya'll. I have allrgies. Terrible allergies that cause chronic sinus infections all the time. (I guess that redundant a little bit, but I wanted to make sure you got the idea.) My family calls me, "Snotdrop." They have since I was little. I often have a hard time breathing. I take a million medications - they do not help. I have tried allergy shots repeatedly, but I have to start over every time I get pregnant.
I am allergic to every -
In Texas- all year round.
As well as
dogs (Yes I do have a cat and a dog. When you are allergic to everything it really doesn't matter.)
As if that is not enough I am also allergic to
hazelnuts - deathly allergic to these
latex of any kind.
(Yes. Go ahead. Make the appropriate jokes.)
When they did the test I was allergic to the marker they used to write on my back.
Have any of you ever had Rapid Immuno Therapy? How did it go? Did it work. Would you suggest it? Can you tell me anything?
2. I just signed up for an Olympic length triathlon in September. Can you give me ANY advice? Nutrition? Speed? Training? The Swim? Fashion? I have been following a training plan, but it is pretty basic and I could use help. I checked out the results from last year's race AFTER I paid the 115.00 entry fee and realized I will probably come in dead last in my age group. Lovely. Actually I can live with that (if I have to.) I just want to be sure to finish and walk back to my car.
So feel free to instruct me. I am ready. And if you have noticed any other areas of my life that need help, feel free to let fly on those fronts as well. (Unless it is my spelling. I know I don't type well all the time. It isn't always easy to type holding one baby and having the other one administer a shot to me with an allen wrench.)
