That's scary, and I thought I
was having a bad day, lol. Here's my grand adventure:
I broke out in hives yesterday: an allergic reaction to who-knows-what. Ended up going to the ER, as I have had anaphylactic (sp?) shock before to an ant bite
. Go figure, the hives were significantly lessened by the time we got there. So, mom and I sat there for a minute before deciding to pick up a midnight snack and head home. Of course, the moment we got home, the hives popped up again. We're pretty sure it was because of the heat making them flare. Despite the fact that I had two benedryls (normally one will knock me out all night), I barely got an hour of sleep last night because every time I laid down and got warm, it would flare again, and by the morning, it was significantly worse, even making my nose swell! (THAT is when I started getting weirded out, lol.) So, went to the doctor immediately and he gave me steroids for the next 5 days. At first, it only got worse. They were so bad at one point that a hive wrapped around my entire upper thigh, another one ran the length of my left arm from wrist to shoulder, and I had them above both
eyelids! Thankfully, they're pretty much gone now: the only ones still lingering are on my hands and feet. Here's to hoping they're gone tomorrow AND Gallop heals quickly!
Sorry for the novel.. I tend to get carried away, lol.
