I had to go to the hospital the other week.
I was given many shots of nuclear medicine. Never before had I had a reaction other than a bit of an frustrated stomach. I got home from the hospital and sat down at my desk. The next thing I knew, my skin was bright orange and I felt love I had fire ants crawling all over me. I was itching and burning at the same time. I was also shivering so terrible that I could barely keep my teeth from chattering. I called the hospital and told them what was going on and they told me that I could take an flu symptom pill or I could use the a/c. I was so cheerful it was summer time because I turned the temperature control way down and I stood in front of the air vents. The cooling air of the AC entirely made my skin know so much better. My partner came upstairs to see how I was doing and he panicked. I had big blotches all over me and it looked worse than poison ivy. He felt my skin and it was so sizzling and dry that he was starting to panic. I told him I had already talked to the doctor and he said that resting in front of the a/c and taking flu symptom medicine was the best thing I could do. He refused to let me alone for the rest of the evening. I definitely don’t guess what I would have done without the a/c, or my partner doting over me for over many hours.
