I am a 48 year old healthy female. Several years ago I developed seasonal allergies living in Seattle. Cotton wood was the first one I noticed. At first they were mild, but year after year they are building to the point that my suffering is year round! I am miserable all the time. Contested, sneezing, itchy eyes. I can't smell or taste at all anymore. The worst is that it never goes away. I'm afraid I might be allergic to mold, dust, my dogs, wheat, dairy, god know what. My boyfriend and I live in a house in southeast portland - sometimes I think the house is making me sick. I fear I need a specialist but I would rather not get shots twice a week if possible. Though I would if needed. I am desperate to get better- I'm making my family miserable. It's taking the enjoyment out of everything. I recently had a hip replacement (old running injury)!and the antibiotics made me feel great. When they wore off I felt crappy again. I'm sick of taking drugs all the time- what can I do??? I feel like I am going crazy - truly.
