Location: Cleveland, Ohio, United States

I'm a Southerner, born and bred (though you'd never know it from my accent, I'm told). I like to eat 'til I'm tired out from eating, hear good storytelling 'til I can recite the stories in my sleep (Stories have to be told or they die, and when they die, we can't remember who we are or why we're here.), watch people, look at sparkly things, listen to good bluegrass music, dream about owning a dog, tell crazy stories about my family, and organize things.

No more spiders.

I woke up yesterday with a weird rash all over my face and body.
Felt like I had spiders crawling under my skin.
Couldn't breathe so well.
Spent the afternoon at an allergist's.
He medicated me heavily.
We don't really know what triggered it.
Now my face feels hot and stretchy, but the red dots are going away.
I'm keeping a food journal.
Allergy profile this Friday.
Did I mention that the allergist stuck this really long Q-tip up my nose for a sample?
Of mucus....
No more spiders.
