Thanks guys...Went thru several different antibiotics which didn't help and finally was given Prednisone yesterday. I can breath but boy does it hurt. I had chest x-rays a few weeks ago thinking I was having an issue with TB which I somehow contracted from somebody while in the air force stationed at Dover AFB back in 79, but all was good there. I had to take two types of drugs then for a full year without missing a day, which turned into a year and a half after I did miss some days. It's considered "inactive" now since 1982. Thank God for that.
I don't know much about what allergies are like in other places in the states, but if I leave this region I'm good, no issues. Been to all the states in the south, been to Louisiana to California with no issues ever, but when I get back to Delaware, or this region, it just messes with me bad. Even went to Europe, England mainly, for 3 years with nary a problem. I've been getting shots since 1976 just to keep my health. Can't have a dog, but we do, it's my wife's, cats are the worse. When I'm around one of those little rascals inside my nose just swells shut. Its funny, my wife and I have had all kinds of animals from ferrets to fish and it's rough for me but I deal with it because my wife is the true animal lover. If she had her way we would have those little potbelly pigs and all that farm stuff, which is where she has spent all her life...on a dairy farm here in Clayton. For years I just laughed about it but it is taking it's toll now. We have one medium size hairy dog left now that's about a hundred years old that looks like a bear and when shes gone that's it for me.
