If this child would just SHUT UP! and eat...he'd have plenty of time to eat his lunch. But he keeps complaining that 10-15 minutes isn't enough (Lunch break is 45 minutes, but the teacher kicks them out of the classroom to play after 15 minutes. It's an active bunch, they need to move.) And he's suffering from severe allergies. And reactive airway disease (got that diagnosis after a trip to the ER last friday night. Now he's got 2 inhalers to take during the day.). He's just plain miserable and doesn't feel well. And it's hard to be reasonable when one is feeling physically miserable. And I ought to know...my childhood SUCKED due to allergies.
So, I've got an appointment with the doctor for next week and see if she doesn't have some magic that will help the alleriges...'cause nothing OTC is working. (I've tried him on Claritin, Zyrtec (kids dose), Allegra (adult dose), and Benadryl (kids dose, hrmmm...may have to try adult dose on that one and see if it helps). I may try hunting down some old school ones to see if they help (I'm thinking Actifed, chlor-trimeton and naldecon.) If not, time to suck it up and go for the shots. Gotta see if the allergist has anything else.
