i was a late bloomer in the allergy department. i developed hay fever (a.k.a. seasonal allergies) when i was 17 and then it just went downhill from there. i developed an allergy to cats, dogs, mold, feathers, trees, certain flowers, perfumes and grass. oh yeah, and penicillin. penicillin makes me die.
pel i feel your pain. i woke up from a nap one day and my right eye was so swollen that i couldn't close it and my eyeball looked like it was trying to squeeze itself out of its socket. it was gross and it really freaked me out. the people at the hospital just laughed at me and gave me some mighty powerful eyedrops.
