Oddness. - Tina Marie's Ramblings
Red hair and black leather, my favorite colour scheme...
The few hives I had last night turned into "hives over more then 50% of my body". I couldn't sleep because I was itching so bad. When my left eye swelled shut at 4am, after enough Benadryl to kill a horse, I decided it was time for a visit to the ER.

I've been the this ER before, and this time I was smart: I took a book.

After 5 hours, tons of steroids, and a bunch more Benadryl, at least it isn't getting any worse.

I have no clue what I got into. I've never been allergic to anything in my life....

This is not a good way to start the new year.

With all due respect for your ailment, I've got to admit: the whole concept of hives is hilarious to me. Hives. Little round bumps all over. An almost-harmless system-wide malfunction. Hilarious! Sorry. I see your hand is still swollen. Hives are not hilarious at all. Not even a teensy bit comical.

The unpleasant thing is...

You know those amusing little bumps all over the skin?

You can get them in your trachea, too. Guess what happens when inside of the trachea is covered in amusing little bumps?

Hint: Not good.

(Why, yes, I _have_ had an adrenaline shot in the emergency room to deal with a severe allergic reaction, thank you.)

Hope it's not

...the adult version of chicken pox, shingles. It can be very unpleasant :/

Re: Hope it's not

Yeah, me too. That was the first thing I thought of when I started breaking out. I had chicken pox as a kid, but it was really mild...
