some good news: Car repair ended up costing half the initial quote bc the guy referred me to a specialist so we're in business again. Just got a big chunk of money from unemployment bc of a delayed covid aid thing that only just got processed. Sad news: I may. In fact. Be allergic to cats. Realizing that my throat problems coincided w smaller cat coming out of her owner's room more...and I just hung out w her for a bit this morning and she got bold enough to climb on my lap and I kept sneezing and my nose running... I will be devastated if true. ;_; took a benadryl but going to look for a more potent allergy med that doesn't interact w my regular meds and run it by my doctor. At least if it is allergies they're manageable and not like...deadly.
