Bugs Crawling On My Skin : The Invisible Hives Urticaria

I am sitting here attempting not to claw at my skin. Writing is helping as it’s distracting my mind, and keeping my fingers occupied. If I was of lesser mental awareness, I’d likely be writing this swearing that there were in fact millions of little bugs crawling over, under, and within my skin. Alas, I [cont…]

The Sky Is Falling! The Sky Is Falling! (experiencing "Impending Doom")

It’s funny to me the ways that words on a page express themselves in real life. Nothing is more funny in this way than allergic reactions. It’s one thing to read that allergic reactions can include things like headaches, nausea, runny nose, congestion, edema, and so on.. and it’s quite another to experience them. Sometimes [cont…]

Today I went and splurged. I can’t really afford it, but I sooo needed it for my own mental health. I started a new job and keep gaining weight (read allergy swelling and allergy induced type 2 diabetic issues) which I need to get under-control but haven’t been able to. In the meantime, I’ve been [cont…]

I’m having new versions of the same old adventures, and attempting to relearn my own body right now. Nearly 2 years ago, I started getting AAT treatments to alieviate my food allergies. It didn’t work, or at least it didn’t seem to do much of anything as I spent the last part of last year [cont…]

Dear Body, I’d like to have my leg back please. While this numb and unfeeling sensation is fun now then, it stopped being fun about an hour ago. I no longer appreciate your sense of humor. So please, May I have my leg back now? Sincerely, Me I’ve gone to the doctor for this a [cont…]

I did something bad. Something very bad and it resulted in me having very little memory of anything I did, said, or even was supposed to do during the last 4 days or so. I vaguely remember that I’d RSVP’d to something on Thursday and didn’t show up. Other than that.. Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and [cont…]
