I've got another post going about about my specific allergy (mold), but I'm rather anxious in general about how to care for myself now. I don't know much about allergy treatments yet, as my testing indicated very mild levels just 3 months ago, so we didn't begin anything major.
When you have serious allergies - mine makes my throat try to close up when outdoors, or when I eat mold, as in bleu cheese - what helps to prevent the symptoms? How do you make yourself feel safe?
I'm just scared that I'll be in fear of my life forever due to these inhalant allergies and am looking for reality stories from folks who've also experienced bad allergies. I've been taking Singulair and Claritin daily for 3 months, and carry an EpiPen.
