HIVES

I am sitting at home, covered in hives. I am tried and itchy. I first got hives in high school and they came and went for two years. Once they were so bad I had to make and ER visit in the middle of the night.
I think I have had them three times since, but they have always gone away pretty fast.
This is my third day and I am just waiting for it to pass. My hands and feet are bruised from the swelling. I kinda feel like I am back in my third trimester completely swollen and sore, bad news is.....I am NOT pregnant.
I have no clue where these hives come from. I have been tested against all kinds of allergians and nothing showed. They said in high school it must have been stress related, but I don't feel any stress now. That is the hardest part, not knowing what I did to cause this.
I spend my days tired and sitting in an oatmeal bath (which does make me feel good for about an hour after the bath) and since I have been taking Benadryl I sleep a lot.
Aaron has been working from home so I can rest and not worry about the kids. Right now he took the kids to go get lunch. I am glad I can still eat and taste food.
If you will pray for me that they go away and don't come back.
