Here's the deal. I have not exercised today and just 10 minutes ago the right side of my face (which my hives seem to prefer) started to itch. Now, I have 2 hot, red, itchy patches on my face: 1) the right side of my chin and 2) my right cheeck. If I rub my hand over them I can feel a bunch of what feel like mosquito bites (those are the hives). I was *just* heading down to my treadmill to walk and now that is O-U-T! Crap! I have also realized why exercising in the house, besides the A/C (which is set at 80, except for my bedroom which is 78, because this house is expensive to cool) has been better for dealing with hives. It is because I can get to a cool shower almost immediately. Whereas when I was out in the park I was covered in sweat for quite a while before getting it off of me. The heat and the salt (in my sweat) are form a deadly combo for triggering the hives. As soon as I get sweaty I can bolt to a cold shower and head the hives off at the pass. Basically, I think I need to move to Juneau, Alaska. The high tops out around 45F this time of year (perfect for me). I just need to whine one more time:
Back to "offering it up".
P.S. Thanks, Rob, for commenting that you would "off yourself" if this happened to you. What are you suggesting for me, exactly ? (hee hee).
