Feeling Sorry for Me

I'm not sure if I have mentioned this before but I have some sort of allergy (I think) that cause my throat, tongue or lips to swell up, but it is only ever half my throat or tongue or lips. I have been to hospital and an allergist to check it out but to no avail,  they can't find what I am allergic to. It has been happening for about the past 3 years but usually only about every couple of months. But I have had my throat swell twice in the past 3 days. So today I am totally exhausted as I haven't had a proper nights sleep for 3 nights now and I'm bloody tired. Whenever it happens I write down everything I have eaten but there is never a common thread. So now I am writing the ingredients of what I have eaten just in case it is a preservative. But so far still no common threads. So right about now I am over it, I just wish I could work out what is causing it as I don't want it to get so bad one day that I can't breath!! If anyone out there has any suggestions I would love to hear them as I am just about out of ideas and the Dr's seem totally confused with me as well.


On a completely different not - Queenslanders are now preparing themselves for a category 5 cyclone. I feel really sorry for everyone up there but I must say I am very glad Stacey and Shane are in Eden not Cairns. One of there dogs "Mitch" is in boarding kennels up there but he has been evacuated to one of Stacey's friends. Stacey has organised for someone to batten down the hatches at their house and hopefully their house and car will be OK.


  1. Davine you have me thinking here now, could it be cleaning solutions or chemicals, possibly mold in the drywall hidden from you, mold is nasty and will cause allergic reactions or minor allergies to become major allergies, how about pet hair, flowers, plants, is it at certain times of the year? I remember you mentioning this some time back but I can't remember how far back that was. Do you keep a log or journal every time this happens? Something you drink? Something in your drinking water? I have no idea but there's a few things to check into. I can't even imagine having that bad of reactions, I'm glad to hear that you're on the tail end of this.

    Sounds like some super nasty weather, I also hope that all is well and remains intact for your son and his wife, thankfully they're away right now. It's horrid the weather there, I seen photos of the flood and was shocked.

    Take care and I sure hope you find what it is that you're allergic to.

  2. Hi Davine,
    A friend here has just had intolerance tests and has a list as long as her arm -she's now trying to work out how to adjust her diet accordingly.
    Luckily I don't have any serious intolerances or allergies, so like Darlin can't imagine what it must be like. I hope you get it sorted soon, and sweet dreams for tonight!!

  3. I yiyi, I hope you figure out what the allergy trigger is.
    Feel better soon, jj
