Hey peeps,
This is my attempt of trying to blog... bare with me ;)

So, I am not sure what to really blog about first. Maybe I will start with some history. I might end up doing little tid-bits about me per blog...

Nearly 22 years ago on a brisk night, in the wee hours of the morning, was born a blonde headed baby girl.
Beautiful in her parents eyes, but a handful of a baby. And I really was...
At only two weeks old I already had mysterious, persistent eczema, horrible bowel movements and lots of crying.
I was allergic to milk, and the doctors said that I was too young to really know that...
Unfortunately, throughout the years, by testing and trial and error I have learned about the plethora of allergies I have... these allergies have several reactions. Some reactions are mild and give me rashes all over, others are
severe cramps, diarrhea, vomiting, migraines (all which can last for several days) and swelling to whatever touches the allergen(including skin)- swelling of esophagus or trachea(asphyxiation) and pain.
To name a few of the major allergies: milk (any products containing it), egg (any products containing it), peanut (I stay away from most types of nuts in general), legumes (beans and peas) and various sea-foods... to name a few :)
Seasonal allergies, you name the pollen, dust particle, pet dander, etc...
I'm also allergic to one of the superdrugs called Vancomycin, and all basic Penicillin and Sulfa drugs...

Okay, enough of the allergies... now to post... give me some idea to post about. I don't know if you want to know this stuff, or about the procedure/surgerys I've had done... but I will be talking about NIH (the National Institutes of Health), and what is to come... stay tuned and Jesus Loves You! Keep the prayers coming!
