Horror Beyond Horrors.

I've just come back to Windsor, although it is mid-reading week, I had to come back to hand in an assignment, and of course the UFC is on this weekend, and with people I know fighting on this card, there's NO WAY i'll miss it.

My week at home was loads of fun, and Jenny, i'm sorry I didnt get the chance to make it to your place, but I had to stay home on the weekend and watch Abby. Tuesday was a shopping adventure, as me and my friend that's getting married in Vegas this May spent the majority of the day shopping for her wedding dress. And we found one, in one day, that's stunning, and she bought it off the rack, which is good becuase she doesnt have loads of time to wait for it to come in.

In regards to my last post, I wanted to admit that a couple of years back, I made a NKOTB "Greatest Hits" CD.....*the one I have actually I made for Ms. Ash, but have yet to give it to her*....It's rediculous to listen, but its fun driving music....everyone sings along....but I digress...

This past week, that I was home, I spent the large majority of time stressing over my paper, and working on it diligently.....And a BIG thanks goes out to Ms. Ash, for coming through at the last minute with a paper, that she donated to my cause. LOL! NO, I did not just hand in her paper, but I did take the sources from it, copied about 2 pages out of 8, and threw in a load of my own ideas, and a bunch of new sources.....before anyone gets on me for plagiarism.

I come back to Windsor, and i'm stuffy....i am not sick, and I feel fine, except my skin is itchy, and i'm sniffly....I lay down to take a nap last night at 6pm.....I dont wake up until 10am this morning. THAT Was so lovely. I slept for a very long time, with intermittant wake ups that total about 2 hours.

I am still stuffy in the morning, so I call my doctor. Since it's reading week they are not busy, and I go right over. My concern is allergies....we have a dog at my parents house, that sheds, and I ate a surplus of one specific food over the past 7 days that I have not really eaten since christmas...but because I was sneezing like crazy all weekend, and i was all stuffy, I went to talk to them about it.

I talked to the doctor about my week, and she thinks that becuase i've had a dog my entire life, and it's never bothered me before, that it's likely not that....she thinks that it is possibly the one food that I ate a lot more of than I usually do.....

She thinks i'm allergic to Chocolate.

I wanted to cry...i didnt...but I wanted to. I'm already allergic to Vanilla, and Red food dye, which if you think about it, is in EVERYTHING....chocolate was my only refuge, and if i'm allergic to that too...i'll die. DIE. I
LOVE chocolate
...with all my heart.....But i'm keeping my fingers crossed that it's the dog hair. *although, every one of my friends here has a dog, and it doesnt bother me at all....but now that I think back about the times that i've eaten chocolate in the past 2-3 weeks, I remember having sneezing fits, and watery eyes.*

I think the Junk Food Gods are trying to tell me something....now it all depends on whether or not i'm going to listen.

Noooooooooooo. This is a devastating post. You can't be allergic to chocolate! Can you?

Princess Pessimism said...

I guess....I never thought you could be allergic to Vanilla...but I am. So I go for my test next week....I'll be devastated.

tacit1 said...

OMG chocolate! Why couldn't you be allergic to broccoli? NKOTB? Wow, that takes me back to high school, I'd forgotten about them!

Princess Pessimism said...

Tacit1 - I like broccoli...LOL

Big Ben said...

I would choose death over stopping eating chocolate

Princess Pessimism said...

Big Ben - you and me both buddy...you and me both.

Miss Ash said...

Let me know if you get a decent mark on your paper LOL.

As for the chocolate .. that sucks, more for me. I was told i am allergic to dogs and bunnies, though neither has had an affect on me that i am aware of. Other than my chronic sinunitis.

Sexy Suburbanite said...

I didn't think that food allergies made you sneeze. My food allergies give me headaches, or weird skin rashes, or make me puke -- never sneeze. I think there's still hope the doc was wrong.

Princess Pessimism said...

Miss Ash - you are the sudafed Queen! I dont know what it is, but I've been getting those horrible headaches again lately, and i've been eating more chocolate than usual. However, after my dr.s appointment last night, I came home and made fudge...if i'm allergic to choco, then i'm going to eat as much of it as I can this weekend, just incase.

And i'll let you know how i did on the paper. Dont forget it's -10% cause it was late.

S.Subs - I get all of those that you get, plus the sneezing....its yucky.

berly02 said...

I'll pray for it to be the dog hair. That is just to sad.

slopmaster said...

maybe you're allergic to talking dirty over the internet.

Princess Pessimism said...

Berly - I'm keepingmy fingers crossed too....

Sloppy - LOL....fuck off.

Trib said...

Go for the definitive diagnosis: get tested by the allergist. Even if you are reacting to it, maybe it's just an ingredient or preservative or something that can be avoided. I've got my fingers crossed for you.

angel, jr. said...

Man chocolate....I just don't know what to say.

Lindsey said...

Oh no. no no no no no no no no. You Cannot be allergic to chocolate. That just isn't fair. We need to do an allergy dance to appease the chocolate gods.

Princess Pessimism said...

Trib - Ya, that's what i'm hoping for, although i'm not hopeful. I've eaten chocolate, and i've been stuffy all weekend

Angel - Me neither....sigh.

Linny - You let me know WHERE, and when...i'll be there...

Marcus said...

On the bright side, maybe it's jsut a certain type of chocolate that affects you?

Try a different brand, or dark chocolate instead maybe? All in the name of scientific research, of course...

Princess Pessimism said...

Marcus - LOL...in the name of science...of course.

Jennifer said...

Yeah, try other kinds of chocolate, but stay away from that Spanish stuff PX got, it looks dangerous.

Sylvana said...

HA!! I read that first line as "mind-reading week"!!

blepharisma said...

There could have been vanilla and/or red dye in the chocolate you ate.

No joke.

Depending on the chocolate, there could be all kinds of junk in there.

Try to get yourself the purest chocolate you can & see if that's a problem.
