Yesterday we spent the ENTIRE day doing paperwork on the house we are selling and the house we are buying. Remember how the banks and the government screwed everyone by giving out mortgages like candy. Then when the people defaulted and were made homeless, the government stepped in. The banks got bailed out. The majority of people are still hopeless. Those left have to fill out tons of paperwork to ensure the same mess will not repeat itself.
At the end of our triathlon of forms, letters, and PDFs, we were hungry. We decided to treat ourselves. We called the local market and asked them to cook us their two largest lobsters. Off we went to the store to get our two pound lobsters.
I decided to have mine as lobster salad. Steve did the major cracking of the shells. I happily picked mine apart as my mouth watered. I had all of the meat in a dish and was ready to eat the little legs. I placed a leg in my mouth and extracted the meat. My lips were burning.
Oh no! Dear God in heaven NO! Please don’t let me be allergic to lobster. I have a friend who is allergic to the shell, but can eat the meat. Steve took all of the shells away. I ate a very small piece of the succulent meat. Within seconds, I could feel my mouth and throat starting to swell. Thankfully some Prednisone brought me back to normal. My wonderful loving husband, worried half to death – but still looking on the bright side, says “Well hon, lobster probably won’t be as plentiful in Las Vegas.”
I never had allergies until we moved to the country. I became allergic to all the trees in the area plus mold. Then I developed many food allergies.
QUESTION: Can one get rid of allergies if the allergens are no longer present? Has this happened to you?
