Back to Square 1.5

Well, here we are, post allergy clinic assessment, which I had hoped would be the start to a major chunk of my road to regaining my health, because getting the histamine under control is indeed a prerequisite for so many other important, healthy steps, and I was really excited about getting that ball rolling.  Six … More Back to Square 1.5
