Allergy Shots May Be in My Future

I saw my primary case physician about my allergies, and she gave me a referral to UW Allergy in Madison.  Which is a hike, but still.

I had that appointment, and I have a new steroid inhaler aaaaaand… I will be having allergy shots!  I just have to set up the scheduling because I will have to have the first 12 once a week for 12 weeks.

Bad for my schedule, but workable.

So, this is exciting.  My mom had allergy shots when she was young and they made a huge difference in her allergies.

The doctor said he usually only sees people ask for allergy shots if they have someone they know who had them already.  I guess I fit that bill!

We’ll be doing everything EXCEPT wheat and cats.

Because I don’t eat wheat.

And because I never spend time around cats.

Seems fair.

Have you had allergy shots?  I’m so excited about this!  Did they work for you?  Or not?  Inquiring minds want to know!

  1. I’ve never had these, but they sound like a pain in the butt! I’m glad you are excited about them though, and hope they help your quality of life! My husband and son suffer from allergies and I see how awful it can be to suffer through the attacks. Good luck Girl!
