I remember when I first went into my Dr.'s office and didn't have a clue what was wrong with me - just not feeling well, sort of like a bad cold, and puffy eyes, a terrible wheezing in my chest along with a cough -- I was pretty darned miserable. The Dr. came into the room and after an examination and testing told me that I had asthma and allergies and I would need more tests done to discover what I was allergic to. Don't get me wrong, everyone was very nice! - but I was pretty scared at the time and really didn't 'get' everything that was said to me then.
I came to HealingWell after searching for answers re all this and found that maybe I could offer help to someone else by researching and putting info here for others to read, or being here for someone to talk to!!
Though I can tell you, I am no Dr. -- I'm just an everyday person, a wife and a Mom, who happens to like trying to help others!
So please feel free as you are looking over the forum here to drop by and leave me a note and let me know that you've been here, what you'd like to see here, or if you have questions re allergies, or asthma - please ask! If you'd like, please start a new topic and help me to help others by putting up information that you've learned along the way...
I'd like to get to know you all, so I hope to hear from you soon!
