A Rash Decision

Pregnancy.  It's great.

Really is.

Pretty easy for me (so far), also.

But I'm about to throw in the towel on allergies.

I've given in to my doctor's suggestions and am now taking one Benadryl nightly before I go to sleep, but it is barely touching my problem.

It isn't my nose, or lungs, or even my eyes.

I instead have a terrible, leprosy rash.  All.  Over.  My.  Body.

My eyes look like I've either been punched or been crying for five days straight.

And my skin.  My poor itchy skin.  My poor, itchy, rashy, lepro-skin. 



  1. You definitely don't look like a leper...your eyes do look itchy though. Poor momma. Maybe we should put you in a bubble until August.

  2. Ugh- I just google imaged leprosy. Gross. I don't have that.

  3. OMG I've been taking one Benadryl a night lately too ... mine's for a persistent cough that only seems to rear it's ugly head at night ... and since I can't take any (useful) cough medicine, this was the pharmacist's suggestion ... luckily it's working for me. I wish you love my dear!
