Life is not about getting to the destination, life is what happens to you on the way there.

Christmas is over..,,, Now if only I can get rid of all my hives and headaches and nausea. I've forgotten to call about a half million people that I was supposed to call for Christmas. If you are one of them - I will call you, I am really sorry. I am so sick to my stomach it's not funny. I don't know what's wrong - just feeling sick. I slept most of the day yesterday. My foot has inflated like a giant pink baloon - I didn't know what was wrong at first but when it spread to my calves and the other foot I realized it was hives. I have to keep it elevated or I am in some serious pain.... Not sure why I'm sick but I can only eat bland things or I will pay for it with my stomach upset later. I haven't been sleeping at all - I got up about 4 times last night and about 8 the night before.

Somehow I think it's all related to my nerves - the last time I got anxious I had pretty much the same symptoms. I had to resort to drugs for that - I hope I don't have to do it again, ,cause getting off the drugs later is SO flippin hard.
