An allergy is defined as the body's overreaction to a foreign substance, usually after previous contact with this substance. The reaction can be acute and dissimilar to the reaction that was observed on first contact. The body has developed an immunological hypersensitivity that can be either localized to a specific area of the body or systemic, affecting the entire body.
If you are allergic, you may have a strong dislike for someone else and can no longer tolerate that person. You have difficulty adapting to a person or situation and are far too easily influenced by others, especially by those you want to impress. You are frequently over-sensitive, defensive and easily intimidated. Know that you are dealing with internal conflict. Part of you loves something or someone while another part of you forbids it. You may feel love for someone but are uncomfortable that you've become emotionally dependent on him or her. One part of you wants to be in their presence and another part of you says you should do without. You find yourself finding fault with them. Often, those with allergies had two parents that held opposing views in a number of areas, which caused conflict in the child. Allergies can easily become an attention-getting device, especially if the allergy is severe or life threatening and requires a great deal of attention to keep it in check.
If you suffer from allergies, figure out what the situation is or for whom you feel enmity and yet seek his or her approval. Generally, this is a person to whom you feel very close. You think if you behave according to their expectations you will be truly loved. Realize that you have allowed yourself to become dependent upon the approval or acknowledgment of this person. It is important to remember that being submissive will not bring you love.
It is interesting to note that we often become allergic to foods we enjoy, for example, dairy products. We love ice cream but can't eat it because we are allergic to dairy. If you are allergic to a certain food, is it possible that you have difficulty allowing yourself to savor the pleasure that comes from the good things in life?
If you are allergic to dust or to an animal, is it possible that you feel easily attacked by others? Why do you think people want to attack you? I suggest you examine your own thoughts about aggression. In general, the fears we have regarding others are a reflection of what's going on inside of us.
Wouldn't your life be simpler and much more pleasurable if you could get the attention of those you love without making yourself sick? It is your belief system that is locking you into this pattern. Instead of believing your allergy is triggered by outside influences, I suggest you think about what happened in the 24 hours prior to the allergic reaction. It's in your best interest to find out which person you are finding intolerable. Since you can't change others, your only option is to see them through the eyes of love and accept them as they are. You will find they will accept you as you are in return and you will receive the attention you seek in a healthy manner.
