Strange but true

I got a sunburn last week that made my forearms pretty tender.

On the weekend I first noticed that the 'sunburn' had turned very red and was becoming raised. The only thing I could figure out, after looking on the internet and asking people, was that I had hives. A friend of mine suggested they could be due to stress. I have been hating, loathing, despising them all week. It was BAD. My arms were RED, they were itching, it looked horrible! I thought I'd never be rid of them.

But listen to this.....Charles left Monday for an almost weeklong trip. And there I was today, driving to the airport right after work to pick him up and I ran my hand along my arm.

NO hives.

I think I'm allergic to not having my husband.

Christie,
I'm so sorry you had a bad week! You should have called. I don't know what I could have done, but maybe some moral support. anyway, I'm glad your moral support is back! Enjoy your weekend!

I often get a funny rash when I'm in the sun for a while - kind of like hives. Weird, eh? Glad it went away. I KNOW I'm allergic to my sweetie being gone. I have a hard time with everything when he's away!
