I wish I could breathe....

I am absolutely miserable. My allergies are on overload right now. They were kinda bad and then I got my shot Tuesday and now it is WORSE! I got a welt on my left arm that is at least 2 inches in diameter. And I haven't been able to breathe through my nose since. Ugh. I called the shot desk at the allergist....apparently I can't handle 3 tenths when they try to up my dose. Um......I thought I was on my maintenance dose - doesn't that mean I maintain the same dose?!?!?!

Apparently not. She said the last time they went up that high I had a reaction too. Fabulous. Unfortunately, there isn't anything I can do after the fact. At least it isn't as itchy today. But I feel like I am in a fog. Even my beloved Zipfizz isn't helping! (Zipfizz is an energy drink powder that you add to a bottle of water. They sell it at costco and it is awesome! It tastes kinda yucky - but I don't do fake sugars, so you might not think it's so bad. But it's fantastic for the mid afternoon pick me up. It isn't loaded with caffeine and it has very few calories. It has lots of B12 which is good for you and for some reason it helps my allergy headaches.)

I did have a stamp camp last night and I'll try to get a pic up this afternoon. I feel bad for my poor stampers, I was so foggy. Good thing it was my regulars and they pretty much know what they are doing by now. We did some cute stuff though. Some I had made earlier this month and some were new. I'll go take the pics and post them for you all.

Good note: Matthew got free Dallas Stars tickets for tonight's game! That should be fun. We're going with some vendor of his company, but that's ok. Hockey is awesome - hope for lots of fights!
