100 days of happy...Really?

Well it's a good thing that my 100 days of happy don't start until tomorrow.

Because today -not so good. 
This is my arm today. I've stopped caring what the kids think.
Remember the hives last week...
The DR told me to stop taking the anti seizure pills last week when I got hives.  
I had to wait until the hives got completely better. And then I had to start taking the pills again. (Torture, I swear!)  So today I took the pill again.  I took it at 10 am this morning.  And by five, I looked like this. One pill, one time.  God, its like getting pregnant, it only takes once.  Insert several swear words here. 

I have been getting sicker for about a week now. Feeling like I did in the fall. Dizzy, nauseous, overall achey, really tired and sick.  And then it is really hard to get out of bed. So I try not to. And now I look pretty gross again so I won't be leaving the house anytime soon.  

I have ordered a Lyme disease test out of California last week in order to rule out that as well. Canada only tests for one strain and there are actually four.  A lot of the symptoms really add up, especially the ones that the DR's don't really want to listen to or brush off with a different diagnoses or blame on my age. So we will see. 

I will keep you all posted. For now I am going to have an oatmeal and lavender bath.  Then I will slather up with more lavender and lay under a blanket and try not to move.  If by chance you want to get some lavander feel free to follow the Young Living link up at the top of the page. I love it and you never know when you will get hives twice in two weeks.  It happens, like pregnancy.  Even after jumping jacks...too far...yeah too far...sorry my bitterness this evening is seeping out.  I better go.  

Thank you all for reading and more importantly for caring.
