Recently my daughter went through a very intense allergy testing. We had five visits to the allergist where the nurse injected her with different allergens at different strengths to find her "highest tolerable level" The way this doc works is he believes in only giving the allergens that she is actually allergic to instead of giving a general allergy shot. So she has a custom program just for her. They sent us to a "shot class" and sent us home with 10 vial's of things she is allergic to. Now I have to do the shots at home. I am very overwhelmed with the whole thing. I want her to feel better but we have been to so many doctors and all of them so far couldn't come up with anything until now. This doc believes that all her pain in her joints and muscles, mood swings, hives, including the basic allergy reactions runny nose itchy eyes are all allergy based. Has anyone had any success with the shots? I hate to go through this for nothing. according to this doc it can take from 2 to 6 years to get desensitized. Just overwhelming. Thanks for any thoughts.

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips.
