Yes, I know I didn’t get the Year in My Yard post up yesterday. That’s because we have a horrendous inversion layer with heavy, dense, freezing fog and it’s triggering my asthma even when I stay inside, so I’m not about to go outside till tomorrow when it’s supposed to be gone. It needs to lift. We need rain and wind. I need air in my lungs.
Along the same lines, had another food allergy reaction yesterday. Benadryl to the rescue. This past year, I feel like I’ve kept them in business. No, I don’t know what to–I rather think it was a bad intolerance issue, though the symptoms were more food allergy. Tingling lips. Tingling nose. Itchy scalp and a few hives. Sam was at the gym when I started to notice it. I decided I’d better call him.
Conversation went something like this:
Me: Can you come home?
Sam: What’s wrong?
Me: My lips are tingling and I think I’m having a reaction–
Sam: I’m on my way. I’ll be home.
Me: I thought I’d better call you. I’m taking Benadaryl.
Sam: I’m on my way.
When he got home it concluded with:
Me: I’m sorry I had to interrupt your workout–
Sam: I’m glad you did.
I have a tendency to not want to bother people when I get sick. It could be dangerous in the case of my allergies/reaction. As to what triggered it? I have no clue. But it happened right after I ate one of my chocolate nut clusters and TBH, it’s been quite awhile since I’ve had walnuts. I also remembered a dream I had Saturday night where I was eating what I thought was coconut milk ice cream, and suddenly realized I’d been served regular ice cream. I started to panic as the reaction was setting in. I hazily remember waking up from the dream panicking that I had used Sam’s chocolate chips (he eats the ones with dairy) by accident in the nut clusters, but then realized no, I didn’t…so I think my body was warning me to be cautious. Too bad it wasn’t warning me what to be cautious of.
Lastly, I am working on a sekrit project for you guys…a little holiday surprise (though not holiday themed). You’ll know more soon.
I’m so tired right now. The Benadryl knocked me into a heavy, heavy sleep yesterday afternoon for three solid hours, and I probably should have just let myself sleep more, but I didn’t. Then my asthma kicked in last night…tonight? Well, at 6:30 AM I guess last night works, and I haven’t really slept most of the night. My sleep schedule is so screwed up. But hey…it could be worse.
