Due to recent breathing problems, I finally contacted an asthma/allergy specialist. This week I was administered the initial tests for environmental allergies (all skin tests). This required that I have 48 various oils pricked onto my arms (24 on each arm) & 6 needles put into my right bicep. Each spot tested a different substance to see how my skin would react.
The results were so absurd that when the doctor stepped out, I grabbed my phone to photograph the ridiculousness. Does this look awful? This arm contained tests for animals and other critters. Welcome to my absurd world. And screw you Mr. Unbreakable.
My scores on a sampling of the tested subjects:
- House dust, rabbits, and feathers = suprise, you're allergic.
- Cats, hamsters, orchard grass, ragweed = ooh, you're doubly allergic.
- Dogs, horses, and RATS! = aaahhh run and hide, you're at level 3!
- Mice = Have you ever looked at a mouse? I'm suprised you survived. (I'm so glad we have a cat).
Where did I pass the test with no reaction? Cockroaches. Sweet sweet Bronx, you did me well.
