Dealing with Stress

Tuesday, March 26, 2013

Today I am very sad. I have been dealing with stress for almost a month now. There has been no more weight loss however my eating habits are slowing returning back to the "healthy" side.

I also came down with a very bad bout of Hives that I have not been able to get rid of. I have been to the doctor 3 times for this and I'm still breaking out. Yesterday's visit got me a shot of an antibiotic. Anti-itch pills this time (instead of just a cream) and 12 pills (yes, 12 ) of Prednisone. I woke up this morning - with another break out of hives on my face, arms and chest. How depressing!

As we begin to rule out things that I could be reacting to - it is coming down to my beloved doggie. :( (Extra tears) My mother was about my age when she developed severe allergies to dogs and cats. We could never have another pet after that. I have had my beautiful cocker spaniel for 2 years now. And it looks like I may have to find a new home for her. My heart is breaking. She is my baby and gets very depressed when she cannot find me. I hope that I can find a good home for her and that she will be happy.

So I hope that today will be a better day and that we can get some answers somehow as to what is keeping me covered in Hives.

*The most important message as I read this is - Hope...don't ever lose it!

    I so hope for your sake it is not your doggie- could you start taking allergy shots?
I don't know what I would do- my dogs are such a comfort to me.

hope you feel better soon emoticon
