Mother was right, always wear clean underwear



Last week, while enjoying the opening luncheon of my Garden Club, I had nothing better to do but to have an allergic reaction to a delicious salad. Well, it wasn't an ordinary salad actually. Buried inside were some exotic nuts that I don't get along with.

If you or anyone you know has severe allergies, you know what came next. My blood pressure dropped, my throat began to swell and well it was downhill from there. Fortunately, the last two things I remember was dialing 911 and telling the operator that the paramedics had to treat me aggressively or I wouldn't do well. They listened and I'm here to blog another day!

Yikes. I'm grateful and glad you're back to blog another day. I suppose the after effects of "aggressive treatment" explain the time stamp on the post? Hope you can get some rest.

She was very lucky, quick trip to the ER and lots of adrenaline, epinephrine, and whatever other "ine" they used.
She didn't mention the final cure, a session with the bin of sale silk at the LYS.
