Apple Polly Loggie


So, I learned something today.

Today, while visiting the Noah, I learned that I am allergic to rabbits.

I knew I had problems with angora. My mother gave me a gorgeous angora sweater when I was younger. I wore it for approximately twelve seconds before I broke out in horrible hives. Unfortunately, I had no other shirt to wear, and it was around the time it would have been …inappropriate for me to continue on in grade five social studies shirtless.

But I didn’t know I had problems with other rabbits.

Apparently, I do. While having a long overdue and much enjoyed visit with Noah and his Goddess, I started suffering from hives on my arms and torso. Then I started sneezing violently. Then, and this was the worst of all, my eyes. Oh GOD, my EYES!!! (the goggles; they do NOTHING!)


To my cat-allergy suffering friends, I am so sorry. I’m not going to cat-sack the fuzzy ones, but I sympathize. I also understand that next time I go to visit Noah and his Goddess, I will dose myself to the proverbial nards in antihistamines (because I won’t forego being able to hang out at their delicious new home). I will make sure I have a vast and varied selection of allergy treatments available for my friends.

    The schadenfreude, she is overwhelming. :)Be aware that you might need to try different antihistamines to find the type and dosage that work for you. I find, personally, that Claratin doesn’t do much for me, while Chlorotriplon is da bomb. Other people swear by Claratin. So keep trying, if one doesn’t work.

    Yes, I know this. I have cat allergy friends who tell me these things. So far, I discovered Reactine worked fairly well, when coupled with standing outside breathing in vast amounts of non-rabbitified air. Oh God, the eyes.I promise to maintain a veritable cornucopia of allergy countervention concoctions on hand.

    Lovely framed photos of cats doing cute things are always nice.

    Apology accepted. :)Good luck finding the right antihistamine. I know that there’s one (Chlortriplon possibly?) that while working great, also knocks me out cold for several hours.

    I vote for Aerius or Reactine with a preference for Aerius.

i make squee noises when you tell me stuff.
