Yes, that's what the NP told me...she went paperwhite when I asked her if I should test some iodine on my arm to see if that's what it was..."No! Absolutely NOT!" Nope, she wouldn't let me play with anaphylaxis...party pooper!!!

I have never had a reaction to MSG or soy or Peanuts, etc. And I don't think I'm going to experiment without a medical team nearby.

If the tomatoes came out of a can, they are probably laced with BPA, which is estrogenic and toxic.

It was cocktail sauce, came out of a glass bottle, I didn't source it any further. I think I am going to trust on the shrimp being the culprit.

"Damn" is right! Hope it's a temporary condition. No cocktails, no scampi, no fried. Shrimp are my go-to in the freezer when I'm really stuck for supper. Don't know what I'd do if I caught a shrimp allergy.

I've done some of my best sleeping in a chair! A while back I had such a kink in my shoulder I could not get comfy in bed. I grabbed my blankie and the heating pad and headed to my Lane Snuggler. It's like an extra-wide recliner, room for me and the kitty. I got all comfy in the chair and on the pad and slept the rest of the night. Woke up feeling better than ever. Since then, if I have problems sleeping I'll head to the chair and, usually, get a fuzzy companion to lull me off to dreamland.

But, damn!!! Shrimp???
That's how it started with my father. Next thing you know it's any shell fish. He's wound up at the emergency room before with a swollen tongue/difficulty breathing from eating fries that were cooked in the same oil shrimp were fried in. After that he started being real careful any time he ate out.

I've got a friend who works in clay. He's got some pretty bizarre stuff at his house. Moreso because it's lifesize.

Hmm pac, doggie get you up? Don't usually see you here during Vampire Hours.

Your friend makes some rather, um, interesting? art.

I'm heading off to bed. If I yawn any wider I'll swallow myself! Got a big day of college football starting around noon. Hopefully that 8:00PM game works in our favor...

She did. She didn't have to (or want to) go earlier, so I knew this would happen. She's making up for falling asleep early and sleeping through the night before, lol.
