Kades, I love your new avatar! I am the same as you. I tend to hang back rather than try and get in front of a reckless driver. Who knows if they will pass me again, but if I drop back they will probably be out of my way. And I was known as leadfoot in my day as well.

Now I am not saying that my way is the best, it is just my way!

I miss driving. I am not legally able until my leg has healed for 3 months after the second surgery which will be just before Christmas and I don't drive in the winter, so I guess I will have to wait until spring to try out our new car!

I'm going out of my mind ladies. Saturday night, while sitting out at my friends' porch, I developed a horrible rash on my arms (by the elbow where it folds). It itched so I scratched the heck out of it then left it alone. Sunday it didn't bother me at all but this afternoon, the itching and burning started all over again. Argh! I traced back on what I ate and drank differently that might have caused it and all I can recall having is a chorizo appetizer and vodka. I have had both of these before but it's been a long while. I have suffered from eczema before but hadn't had it since I was EXTREMELY stressed working full time. I'm literally freaking out and scaring myself silly here! The Benadryl gel that I just applied helped a bit...sigh...

Dina, this is going to seem really strange. I know, because when I was told it I thought the doctor was nuts, but looked it up on the internet and it matched my symptoms - an itching burning rash on my throat and neck area.

Anyway, I was on a retreat on a local island and we were staying in a cabin made of cedar and there were cedar trees around. I was also eating a lot of fruit and had a couple of apples. There is a very rare reaction that can occur in people prone to rashes or eczema that occurs when apples are eaten and the person is exposed to cedar spores.

Okay, I know it is a real long shot, but though it worth a try. Everyone can stop laughing now (it was incredibly painful and uncomfortable!).

Dina if the gel helped, do you by any chance have any benadryl capsuls? 25. mg can be purchased OTC I'd get some and see 2 caps is what I take when I get a rash or hives from something..

I love angels and collect them for my Christmas tree..So when I saw this one and had a chance to use it I jumped at it. Glad you like her...

Didn't occur to me. I will check with my friend to see if there are any cedar trees around the area. I was in pain. Ick!

Kades,
The benadryl gel helped. I will go get some pills to keep handy just in case.

Oh yeah, I'm good. It's my parents, after 24 years they are divorcing. I am old enough to understand, though it's just hard being pulled in both directions, and it is difficult to be neutral to both of them when I see clearly how uneven the ground is right now. I am also very worried about my dad's health. He has had two heart attacks about 6 years ago within six months of each other, and was rushed to the hospital again a couple of weeks ago for an anxiety attack.
Forgot to add, they live an hour away so I feel the pressure to be there alot.. It has been almost every day or two that I am down there. Yes, I want to support them, but I need a break too.

It's just not a fun situation.

On the bright side of my life, the new job is going great and Nick should be joining me soon. We are also looking to buy a house.
