DID ANYONE had allergy shots for ragweed and pollen? Any good/bad stories to share? Does it work?

I have been getting shots for almost a year now. I get two shots, one for mold, the other for cats, dogs, horses and all pollens except grass. So far my asthma symptoms have disappeared and I am looking forward to eliminating accolate, an asthma pill. The only downside is I have so many severe allergies I have been unable to get to full dose all summer so I have to go back to every two weeks until Dec. Right now I cannot eat any fruit that comes from a tree but this morning my allergist told me by getting the shots every two weeks I should be able to eat fruit again in 3 or 4 months. I am scheduled for food testing next week to rule out additional food allergies.

At this point I will not consider stopping the shots and going back to how I felt before getting them.
