Boy did I have an interesting day yesterday. I started taking some herbal supplements that a friend sent me. Day 1, great. Day 2 allergic reaction. I was red and welted and itching like crazy. My eyes were so itchy I thought I would have to pop them out to feel better. I took a couple of benedryl. Then I started having a hard time breathing. I was alone at my house so I called a friend and we went to the doctors. I was miserable! I am now taking some predisone. I was kind of freaked out. Nothing like that has ever happened to me before. I don't know what it was that was in those things, but it wasn't good for Dana. I came home and slept till 5 am. Feeling much better. Still have a tight little cough. Welts, redness and itching are gone.
Moral of this story is never take anything, even and especially over the counter/herbal, without being vigilant. This little episode really scared me. UGH! Not to mention alittle embrassing. When I went to the doc's I couldn't even remember the name of the damn things. It's enfinitea. My friend swears by them. Told me she was losing weight like crazy....hence the reason I tried them. Hoping to see alittle more movement of the scale. STUPID STUPID STUPID! I will just be happy with the way things are going. There really isn't any magic pill! STILL!
I am going to my Gson's little league football game this morning. The rest of the day will be spent making salads for a get together tonight. Then I will go to said get together. More on that tomorrow....with pics I hope!
Have a great Saturday. Keep the mood and the food real.........be vigilant
