More allergies!

After a two week bout with a head and chest cold and a week of antibiotics, I woke up Friday morning with a swollen eye, and a red rash. During the weekend it spread to the other eye. It burns and itches. My ears hurt and my throat is sore. I went to the doctor to ask to be referred to a specialist and she wanted to see me first. So She said "Oh, that looks like an allergy" YA THINK??!!
She is not my regular doctor but a partner. She gave me 6 prednisone pills and ordered a CT scan on my head. I told her about the troubles I've had the past 6 months. I had a bad reaction every time I went swimming (chlorine). I had a bad reaction when I took a new pill (Metformin).
Saturday I started a NEW pill (Actos) because Avandia that I was on for three years has been killing people. Hmmmm, maybe that would makes things easier. Naw.
So that is what has been happening in my life lately. I used to run to "Happy Hour" after work years I run to the Pharmacy!!
It's strange, but I seem to be running into the same people I knew at Happy Hour!! HAHAHAHHAHA
