Assessment of Personal Targets I Set 12 Months Ago — 75%
1. Reduce Allergy Symptoms And Medication Use — 100%
Goal at that time: Reduce intake of irritating foods, then find a drug cocktail that includes fewer allergy medications.
Situation at that time: A year ago, 2 over-the-counter plus as many as 3 prescription medications were a de facto part of the daily plan.
Situation now: I’ve reduced my daily allergy drug cocktail to 2 over-the-counter drugs daily. My allergist’s staff says it may be possible to wean myself off them.
New goal: I will get my allergy symptoms to a place where they’re well-controlled, then I’ll begin to wean myself off one, then another.
Scientific method, here we come. I am (still) my favorite science experiment!
