I feel like I just fought a war.

So last night during small group, my entire body broke out into hives. It’s very odd. Nothing like this has happened to me since I was a little kid. A long time ago, I got hives after eating (I believe) plums and it was so bad I had to go to the hospital. So I’ve avoided plums (it’s the skin than gets me) since then and everything’s been fine. No clue what set it off last night. Everything I ate, I normally eat so not sure what it could have been. Just odd.

Anyway, it was surreal, because it all happened during Bible study. I’m trying to lead this study, and meanwhile I watch these spots appear and grow on my arms and a warm, itchy tingling sensation engulf my chest, back, legs, and neck. I dunno, it’s hard leading a study when all you want to do is rip off your epidermis.

Anyway, it’s good knowing doctors. There was one there last night and she gave me good advice, like taking Benadryl (the fastest acting antihistamine) and a cold bath. I’m feeling better now, just really groggy from the Benadryl. Not that anyone cares.
