The Four Levels of Food He… Allergies. I Meant Allergies.

I recently had an appointment with Dr N to go over the results of my food allergy testing. There are four reaction levels (allergy levels) for the skin test (well, five I suppose if you decide to count “no reaction” as a level): +1, +2, +3, +4.

I was just looking at this photo again (I think it’s really cute, so I made it my Facebook profile photo), and I noticed something interesting: You can totally see which rib is out of place… again.
