There is so much I want to share and stories I want to make sure others know. Where to start? I think I will just post normal every day things and throw in some history of my past situations as I go.
Today I have found more ants under my desk here at school/work. Yesterday, I discovered a line and pile of them on a goldfish cracker a teacher dropped under my desk. No big deal to most, but I am highly, highly allergic to any insect that bites with some kind of venom. It’s been over 10 years now since my first hospital trip. I have never been so terrified as the feeling of your tongue and lips swelling and your throat closing up. I was then prescribed an Epi-pen and haven’t purchased a new one since. Do you know how expensive those things are? Crazy ridiculous!
I quickly gathered my things (thankfully the end of the school day) and headed to pick up my 8 year old. She suffered from severe anxiety and I unfortunately told her our Wal-mart trip plans needed to change so I could go to the doctor. Panic set in! She was in hysterics by the time I reached her, which just made my heart race more. I made it to the doctor without clawing off my toes, and she quickly gave me a steroid shot. She threatened to send me to ER, because the swelling was getting bad.
Oh no, no hospital for me. I know to ice and Benadryl.
