It is so now official like my itching body didn't already know it.. YES I have been tracked down and hunted by the dreaded POISON IVY !!
IT all started innocently.. This bush I didn't like it.. so after confirming with my hubby that he didn't like it either, we decided it could come out and what we would do once it was gone.
I'm thinking that bush really liked being there. I think I hurt it feelers and it was going to extract revenge upon me.
here was my bush..
We have visions of a little patio around the tree with a nice place to sit and enjoy the morning or neighbor kids playing.
here is what is left of the bush...
OKay I hear you .. I have not once until today ran into poison ivy.. Not in MInnesota surrounded by woods.. Not in Nebraska playing as kid... Odd maybe , I just have never be caught by it. So this is the start of my rash...
not to bad but picture doesn't do it justice.. I called yesterday they couldn't get me in ..
this is the same rash today...
this is not the only place.. but right side of face and right arm are the worse.
I am so glad I got into the doctor.. but now I am on Steriods.. which mean
1.I may be moody... I don't like being moody
2.I may crave sweets... I'm like really Wow Steroids way to mess with me. I will be fighting them all I can.
3. I am diabetic .. My blood sugar will go up fasting could be up to 200-300.. I MEAN REALLY.... UGHHH I am lucky I have it controlled well.. 103 this morning.. I know it is temporary.. but ick... That will make me more moody.
4. I AM GOING TO fight it every step of the way.. I will be on track in calorie range .. sugar cravings be damned.... I will exercise every day to help combat that rising blood sugar. I will not lay down.. unless I take too much Benadryl.. then I might not have that option.. heheh
so here is my enemy :
less than 2 feet from my front door..
See I knew I didn't like that bush for a reason.. he was hiding his friend.. UGG bushes what do they know..
OKay I am going for a walk , then hopefully my prescription will be ready to pick up. Got a starter shot at the Doc.. then I take the benadryl and might nap but since I will have walked.. I can go nighty nighty...
I will not say I can't because of that Poison Ivy .. I will and CAN stay on program and exercise every day..
HUGS to all my supporters.. YOU GUYS ROCK !! and you are my ROCKS !! you help me every day in every way.. You guys help make this JOURNEY AWESOME !! see no crummpy frummpy yet...
