I am apparently terribly allergic to either crappy beer or programming in GSP. I suspect the latter.
At any rate, I woke up this morning with massive hives covering my back and shoulders, as well as sprinkling down my legs to the knee and starting to creep up my neck. I didn't really notice until I'd gotten up and put my robe on over them.
SCENE: Bathroom. Early morning.
Back half: ZOMG TEH ITCH!
Front half: S'arright.
Brain: HOLY CRAP WHAT.
I don't think it's anything I drank or ate, I haven't bought new clothes or detergent or anything like that, and if it were anything in the sheets I would have had it all over since I roll like an insomniac log. So I lotioned up, bit the bullet, and went to work.
SCENE: Work. Around noonish.
Back half: Okay, okay, taking a deep breath and chilling out. I'm not DONE with the hivey freakout, but I'm finished with the full-volume screaming anyway.
Brain: Well it's about goddamn ti-
Front half: ZOMG TEH ITCH!
Brain: FER FECKSAKE.
I went to the restroom and checked it out, and yeah, whilst the back hives were mellowed out to about 25% of their original ferocity, new ones were springing up all over my stomach and lower abdomen. GLEE. I considered going and buying some benadryl at the overpriced in-work-building shop, but the itching wasn't that bad and I figured I'd just wait until I got home.
SCENE: Work. 5 minutes after aforementioned shop closes.
Front half: Dude, check it out! All the little hives Voltronned into THREE HUGE HIVES!
Brain: Holy christ, I have CONTINENTS on my belly!
Front half: "she is spherical, like a globe; I could find out
countries in her."
Brain: You are not fucking funny.
Boobs: Um, guys? We kinda, um, are having a situation here...
Me, out loud: Oh screw this DOES ANYONE HAVE ANY ANTIHISTAMINES?!
The good news: there was an impromptu med kit on the 3rd floor that included Benadryl. The bad news: it hasn't helped much if at all. Things are fading, but at the exact same rate they were before the medication, so I don't trust more not to randomly pop up somewhere lovely and new, like the soles of my feet or my face.
