Well, cats love getting their ass kissed and making you beg for their acceptance. My guess is OP, being allergic to them, ignored it, and the cat can't have that happening. It's just a hunch that I have because my friend had two cats and they wall away from me if I pet them a few times, but they won't leave me alone if I ignore them. Bastards. They also act very cuddly when they're hungry while you're eating, then ignore once fed.
Despite the difficulty it takes to read #6's comment, that's how cats tend to be. The body language humans show when they don't want a cats attention (not looking at it, avoiding it, etc.) are seen as non-threatening signals in cat language. The opposite is true as well and when people try to act friendly towards cats (looking them in the eyes, smiling, going towards/touching them, etc.) can be seen as very threatening. The cat probably sees that OP is trying to avoid it and thinks it's an invitation to be pals.
Terminal...? It's not end-stage cancer. An allergy, though unpleasant, won't inevitably cause death. Anaphylaxis can be fatal, but it is a severe allergic reaction and it is not considered a terminal illness. It is not guaranteed to occur. OP probably won't go into anaphylactic shock over the family cat if she hasn't already.
The cat is planning your death.
close the door to you room and keep the cat out! That's what I have to do too :) or take meds
