I have HIGHLY allergic daughters. Amanda and Emily. They are BOTH allergic to every kind of grass, tree and shrub ever created (almost). They are allergic to dog and cat dander. Sorry, but I'm NOT getting rid of my dog. I'll give him a bath more often, but he stays. Emily is asthmatic every time she gets a cold. Doctors, prescriptions, emergency rooms, inhalers, breathing treatments. We've been there.
And now the most recent allergic discovery:
Amanda is allergic to egg whites, strawberries, wheat and cows milk. She also has a resistance to insulin. That means pretty much no more carbs for her. She gets 20 grams per meal. She will have to take a prescription nasal spray and probably recieve injections. Fruits, vegetable and meats from now on. She's like one of those girls at girls camp that has to have special food made for her. I don't completely understand how the insulin and allergies are related, but they are. She's nineteen and buys and cooks her own food. She joined the gym and works out 6 days a week. I believe the pounds will literally be melting away.
I feel for her, but in the long run she'll be way healthier than me!
