Appreciate the smaller wins too!

Today, one of my colleagues brought in their poodle, one of the few dogs that don’t make my allergies too bad. I am on antihistamines daily, therefore I was not too worried, and did not react at all. It was hilarious however, just like the 3 other times she has been in the office, she wouldn’t let me go. I don’t know what it is, but I seem to ATTRACT what I am allergic to… cats, dogs, they seem to want to play with me and often-times they follow me around more than anyone else! Do you seem to have this problem too !?!? Craziness I tell you! But today it made me smile and laugh! Which is always a good thing.

Since I don’t have a dog at home, I was very happy when I saw her come through the doors this morning. I LOVE dogs and dream of maybe, just maybe, having one of my own in the future, granted of course that my allergies let up a little. When I was younger, we used to have a dog and I had gotten used to her. If I ever felt down, Kita, our beautiful Leonberg, was always in close range for a hug. :-)

I am confused how things can change sooo much with time and circumstances. I still don’t quite understand why my allergies seem to have gotten worse over time like I am sure many others out there feel too. That is why, I have been having Immunotherapy injections for almost 2 years now for cats and dogs. And the dust mite injections for almost 7 months now. I can’t quite grasp how come my body has become so over-reactive and sensitive to things that I never used to react to. But even so, I am fairly keen at taking this on as another challenge! I figure ” I used to have less allergies, so why can’t I go back to that? ”

POSITIVE, POSITIVE, POSITIVE! It’s really the only way to go!
