SPT - More Self Portraits



So you think this is just a regular self portrait, huh?

I didn't want to miss out on another SPT, so I decided to take a self portrait, even though they look like this...
Check out this great allergic reaction to some medication I started taking yesterday!

It first started on my wrist as a few bumps, but now it has spread to my stomach, my arms, my legs. I'll spare you the stomach pictures, but let's just say it's starting to cover almost the entire thing, and that's no small feat!

Yesterday Matthew and I finally went to the Docs since I've been sick for 10 days and him 4 days. We got a great shot in the bum and an antibiotic. Well, I guess it's been awhile since I've had an antibiotic and my system is not liking it. Anyway, I'm off to the Docs to see if I should keep taking it. Wish me luck!

**Update 3:37pm: Got back from the Doctors and apparently I'm allergic to another antibiotic. This is how beautiful HIVES looks! I've decided to spare you more pictures as it has spread over my entire torso, arms, and other places. The hydro cortisone cream is helping and I got new meds, so hopefully this will be under control, and less itchy by tomorrow :)

Thanks for all your well wishes!

thanks for your post, that really sucks about the reaction to the antibiotics. I guess now you can "focus" on finding the right one. (great word too!)
