Because Allergies are Contagious

I’m sorry I fell off the face of the Earth the past couple of days.  My computer died (may it rest in peace) and then I got sick, thanks so much to my daughter for that one.  I did take my daughter to the doctor to test for strep as she’s prone to that and it’s most likely what she had given the severity of her symptoms…at least so says her mother of 16 almost 17 years, said mom knowing what the girl looks like when she has strep among other illnesses she has had umpteen times in her life.

But the doctor knew better, as you’d think they would, and decided it had to be allergies. Really, really bad allergies. The rapid strep test came back negative as it does every single time Sarah has ever been tested in her life. But was it cultured to find out for sure? Why no, no it wasn’t. Why not? I’m glad you asked. It’s because she has allergies. Just ask the doctor.

Of course Sarah has never had allergies in her life, but sinus infections with accompanying strep throat…now that she’s had more times than I can count. But of course it’s not strep or a sinus infection. It’s allergies. You see the pollen has been so bad here of late that everyone, even people without known allergies, are being affected by it. The doctor said so.

So it’s been a few days now since my daughter first showed symptoms. And here I sit. Sick as a dog. Feeling like I have a thousand knives lining my throat among other, don’t want to talk about it symptoms.

My daughter’s nonexistent before now allergies must be contagious.
