Urticaria, Life is an ITCH
Friday, September 07, 2007
I am getting discouraged and I don't like that feeling.
My hives are getting in my way of working out. The treadmill gives my feet hives, the bike gives my feet, butt and hands hives. Even doing situps makes me break out in hives on my lower back. With my two young kids, I can't afford to be out of commission with swollen feet. Or hands that are so swollen and achey that I can't play with them or hold a book. There is so much I just want to complain about, to yell and scream, I am so OVER the Urticaria. I want my life back when I could walk without pain. When I could sit on the floor and play with my kids without breaking out in painful hives. When I could go for walks in our walking trails and watch the moose and deer without limping for 2 days afterwards. I realize that in the whole scheme of things there is a whole lot worse out there but this affects my life daily.
I have so much anger today. I have had a headache for a week, my husband rubbed my shoulders for me last night and this morning my shoulderblades are burning and swollen, I can't turn my head. Even moving my left arm is sore around the shoulder blade. Maybe a good cry will help.....
Here's to a better day tomorrow.
