Never had Hives Before….

This morning I woke up and went to brush my teeth. While in there I looked in the mirror and see Bright Red Blotches all over my neck and chest. Upon further investigation I found they went all the up the back of my neck and all the way down everywhere to my knees. HUGE hives under my arms.  And It itches too. Took a shower, a benadryl and a nap. Woke up and it was worse.

Hello Urgent Care center! This time the Doc didn’t act like she was terrified to be in the room with me and didn’t send me to the ER. So that was nice. She said “Yep that’s Hives. Have you changed your diet or laundry soap or anything?” I have used the same soap since I was 4 and nothing new in the past few days. I did get a new Migraine med but that was last week. She said I am definitely reacting to something and with everything that has happened previously I Really Need to keep a close eye out for fever, stiffness, headaches and pain in the joints. She put me out for 3 more days to make sure I have time to heal.

At least I have finally surrendered to the fact that I am sick and need to take the time to heal. My Temp Disability claim has been approved, and everyone there keeps telling to just take the time I need and not rush it.
