I have developed severe allergies to cat and dog dander and dust mites. I have beengetting shots for 8 months now and will be having a re-eval appt soon.I know longer break out in a rash or hives but still develop severe facial redness,hoarse voice,red eyes almost immediately when coming in contact with these allergens.I think the allergist will titrate my allergy shot if I am not mistaken.How do you deal with family members who all have dogs that are in there homes some multiple.Immediately when I am exposed to them when they come over i feel the onset of symptoms.It is not an enjoyable time and I feel terrible for the rest of the day or days and spend multiple hrs cleaning everything that was touched or where ther items were.I know they do not understand and I am definitely going to not allow any items that I can keep outside inside but how does anyone deal with loved ones coming into the house when you know they are and there clothes are covered with dander.Outdoors is not a problem!!I have been thinking about an air purifier but I have a large home.Can anyone give me ideas how they have delt with this problem.I am hoping the allergist will be able to help.I am on zyrtec,singular and right now on a maintenance dose weekly.Would going twice a week help.I also have a dog but mine is outside not an inside dog and I now have to minimize any close contact with my pet.Any suggestions or tips I will a appreciate.It is better for me to go to there homes and expose myself vs them bringing all the dander into my house.Would taking extra premedication help when I do go to there homes!!
my mum just rang to tell me poppy died. I recently said she was ill here but my parents found her laid peacefully on the kitchen floor passed away. Cant stop crying. Really need some support. She was like a therpy cat to me in hard times. She was my only thing i liked at my parents.

To begin, I come from a very strict family/ culture so dating and sex before marriage was something taboo and I just didn't do it out of respect for myself. I was 21 and a senior in college when we meet through Facebook. We talked a few weeks before we decided to meet...
