I'm fortunate in that I don't have personal knowledge of what it's like to be physically beaten up. Very fortunate. However, I do know what it's like to feel like my own body has turned on me.
The first time I had a really severe allergic reaction to a drug was several years ago. My doctor did not believe it was an allergic reaction to a drug, but I always did, and still do.
This weekend, I had another allergic reaction that made my first one look like a prance in the park. I know that this is an allergic drug reaction because I know what I took, and also because I made Dereck Google it yesterday while I was dying in my bed.
This is so awful that I am not even going to try to describe it. I am feeling a little bit better today, but soooo tired. I slept well last night, but I don't know that I am going to make it today without more sleep. I wish someone could just put me into a coma until this is out of my system, but that would be kind of hard to explain to my boss.
