Slowly Going INSANE!!!

Okay. For the first time in my life I have contracted some sort of poison ivy or oak or SOMETHING. And I am about to go mad! It started out with just a couple of spots on both ankles and arms. That was two days ago. I woke up today with oozing blisters, hives, and splotches over my entire body and finally could take it no more. I went to the doctor who gave me some sort of steroid shot and a prescription for a stronger hydrocortizone cream than what you can get over the counter and now I am waiting for it to take effect. Waiting....waiting.....waiting.....

oh Amy, ugh, that's awful! I'll be praying for a speedy recovery for you. We will be back at the tail end of August, so it does look like we will be able to see each other before you move. I would love to take over the cleaning job for you. Just let me know the details and what not.

Dahling, I feel for you. I've had similar ailments as of late. I got stung by a bee (for the first time in YEARS!) 2 weeks ago and I've apparently become slightly allergic to them. Almost every other day I wake up with hives all over my legs. But, one Benadryl and they usually go away. No such luck for you, eh? Best of luck with your itchies. Lovies!
