    Ughhh, I feel like all I have been doing is venting lately... but this stinks, and I am REALLY trying to stay positive (I really am). I was in the hospital the other day because my muscles feel very bruised, different parts of my body are swelling, and my entire body itches all over 24/7... The doctor made me go to the hospital because my lips and throat began to swell... Well, I thought it was getting better, but I woke up this morning so itchy, my top lip makes Angelina Jolie's look really small, and I have hives all over my face...
    And I was outside for three minutes the other night (yes night 9pm) and a bee stung e on the boob...
    And my engagement party is in three hours...
    I know this is not nearly the worst thing in the world,or even near it, so I do not mean to sound like a Debbie downer... I am blessed for everything and that My wonderful fiance and I have this wonderful family to throw us this party... but I feel so horrible... I am o itchy and swollen, I don't even want to leave my apartment, never mind go to a party in our honor...best part, they said this uncommon virus takes 3-6 weeks to go away... I just want to stop itching!

      I'm sorry your not feeling well. Is it an allergic reaction or something? Could you possibly take some benedryl to help it a little?
      I hope it gets better for you.

        I am on Prednisone (a steroid) and two other pills... they say they have no idea why it began... It is just so painful, and i have to try to put on a smile when I just wanna cry...

          I use to get Poison Oak so bad they would hospitalize me. They would give me prednizone and benedryl. Call your doc and see what they say! The Benedryl would make me SO tired but it relieved the itch. On a side note the Prednizone made me have wild moodswings and emotional breakdowns. I would just start crying at the blink of an eye. Of course this was back in high school when that is part of life anyway.
          I hope you feel better soon! Just remember it is all people that love you very much!!
