One thing I have never had is an allergic reaction...actually that's not true I am totally allergic to grass but that's neither here nor there.

So, you can imagine  my surprise when I woke up and I look like this:

I was not too happy. And actually this wasn't even the worst of it, I was so miserable I didn't even think about a photo. But my eyes were practically swollen shut and my face and lips were a great deal larger. This along with my hands being psycho swollen not to mention itching and burning like a muther.

All I have to say is thank goodness forjust happening to be staying with a Doctor or rather a doctor's wife who in actuality, as we all secretly know are pretty much doctors too- at least if they have gone through med school with said Doctor.

After 2 days I looked like this:


By the evening after a lovely dose of steroids and who knows what I was lookin like the second photo.

And Day 3:

Let's just say whatever it was was that did that to me, I do not want to be a part of that again! After racking my brain forever, I realized it was not something I ate especially since it was located only on my hands and face. I'm thinking it was the liver of sulfer chemical for jewelry that I spilled and cleaned up with my bare hands because I am BRILLIANT! There's a reason they tell you not to touch it. Now I know.
