I had all kinds of plans for the weekend, but one meal on Saturday tossed all of the best laid plans out the window!
I still do not know exactly what caused the severe allergic reaction to something I was eating, but during the meal, my throat began to close up…I could not swallow….I could not breathe….I did somehow throw up…had a huge anxiety attack…violent stomach pains…and ended up in the emergency room.
Hours later…I would be pumped with fluids through an IV….a massive dose of Benadryl…steroids….and stomach medications. I was told in the beginning that everyone thought I was having a heart attack. My blood pressure hit a scary height and they did do an EKG.
Suddenly, I was more VISIBLE than I wanted to be. I noticed that as soon as they discovered my age…the HEART word began to be thrown around more. But, I really felt too bad to let my mind run away with me. My throat was on fire which kept telling me this was allergy related and not heart. Yesterday was spent in recovery with fatigue and stomach discomfort…however, this morning I feel back to my old self. Official Diagnosis: An Acute Allergic Reaction!
This picture was taken earlier in the summer and I had decided not to use it….pictures against my red wall have not been the best. But, I do love this Ann Taylor cardigan I purchased in a clearance sale and will wear this look once I return to teaching next week. This week is in-service and preparing for the little darlings to return.
I am glad that no one at the hospital knew I am a Fashion/style blogger…..I looked so bad!!!!! Now, check out the other incredibly VISIBLE ladies over here at Patti’s site:
