Diagnosis Needed!

Written by sally @ 7:43 am — Section: sally

I’ll be out of town until Friday afternoon, but until then, can y’all think of a reason Larry would start sneezing every night around midnight? I change the sheets religiously every week and last weekend I vacuumed every inch of the house, including under the beds. (He had two sneeze-free nights in a row after I vacuumed.) I can’t figure out what it is that Larry’s allergic to, or why the allergicness hits him at midnight every night. I would guess it’s the cat, but the cat has lived here for a year and Larry’s midnight sneezing parties started about a month ago (and when Larry gets up to sleep on the couch, the cat follows him and sleeps on him there.) Suggestions?

    larry’s only pretending to start sneezing in his sleep. he’s got you on MTV’s Boiling Point, and there are hidden cameras ALL OVER your house. i heard him telling Herman all about it on the phone. And they were laughing at you.

    Sally goes right back to sleep. I am the one up for three hours after I wake up. Usually about the time I get back to sleep is 15-minutes before Lulu starts clawing at me to go outside and pee. I am not complaining, because that is a great time to catch up on old episodes of Night Rider and Gunsmoke.

    I am thinking about getting a HEPA filter for each nostril.

    I was sneezing periodically during the day for nearly a year before I finally went to an allergist. She told me that it’s possible to have lowered my immune system during a regular sickness, which allowed cat allergens to get in and sure enough, she did a test and I’m now, at age 31, allergic to cats. She also said that in all her years of diagnosing cat allergies, no one ever gave up the cat.
