Allergy Tests ~ Jeff Daniels ~ Rum Day

Good 63º high clouds smokey morning! Never cooled off last night. I kept the ac on until about 1am, opened the house, icky.

10am hair appointment today. Need a change. Can't decide.
Trip to my rheumatologist/allergist, Dr. Theerapol Prasertsuntarasai (LOL, say that three times fast!) yesterday and he did allergy tests on me. You know, where they put dots on your back and then prick each spot with a serum to show allergic reactions...

 ... well, I had no reactions at all! Not allergic to ANYTHING! In actuality, Cheryl, his nurse did the testing. Sigh, so he says I have what is common among thousands of us... "Nonallergic Rhinitis".

He prescribed Nasonex and Zyrtec. Ok, one more thing I have crossed off my list of ailments. Sheesh! Oh, and by the way I call the doctor, "Dr. T." Super nice man. He also said my arthritis tests came back showing no rheumatoid arthritis, just have osteoarthritis.

Tuesday night I was watching Craig Ferguson and he had Jeff Daniels on, singing.... this is a TOTAL RIOT!!
