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.


  1. Praying for you! Let me know if there is anything I can do for you or if you need anything!

  2. Oh that stinks!!!! Praying that you feel better soon!!!

  3. oh no!! I will pray the itching will go away!!

  5. aww hope they go away soon! Get better!
