I wanted to enjoy the outdoors without thinking about the allergy index and whether it was safe or not. I wanted to be excited about social events involving food and actually eat something, for once. I wanted to feel the joy of communication without every interaction being tainted by my negative lens of obsessive allergy consciousness.
"Its just something I deal with,” I awkwardly ramble. Was I apologizing?! "I'm actually a YouTuber, singer and artist,” Shut up! Are you going to tell them about that psychic side of you, too?

I needed them to know who I was. What I truly loved to do.

Severe dust mite allergy. My trip to the allergist for food allergy testing and environmental allergy was eye-opening, to say the least. But that will once again, be for another post.
We are about to enter the fall season which brings with it different challenges to overcome. I begin allergy immunization shots again from the very beginning, this coming week. And I bought a new pillow.
If you're in the market for a new one, here you go. No more mouth rash.
