This blog is a collection of triumphs and stumbles for what has become a journey in achieving peace with my life. In July 2012 God called me out of the natural health communities and he told me to seek Him for healing. I listened and stopped all the research that I was doing to follow Him. I am believing that Jesus Christ is a healer TODAY and that I will be supernaturally healed of all my conditions. Jesus is the only hope I have because science and natural health has failed me.
I woke up and immediately called my doctor and the message on his machine scared the hell out of me. It said he was going to be out of the office for a whole week. I nearly vomited when I heard this, but decided to leave a message any way. Thankfully I got a call from one of the receptionists/secretaries and she said she would contact the doctor and get back to me. I told her she was a lifesaver and was extremely thankful for this because the hives are getting to the point where I might have to see an urgent care soon for high dose predisone.
Hives on neck-Monday night
I got a call back a few hours later and my doctor agreed to have me try Diflucan. Since the hives are not responding to zyrtec, he thought it was a very good idea. I told her (the secretary) that this is my last attempt before I give in and go on prednisone. The hives are really getting that bad. This picture above is quite tame compared to the hives on my torso and lower abdomen, which you can see below.
As soon as I got word it was available at the pharmacy, we ran over there. I got the prescription and took my first one in the car. haha Now I wait and see what happens. I don't expect miracles because I may have already reached the point of no return. I don't want to go on high dose prednisone. I'm going to be out of my mind if I have to though and that scares me. I might need to buy a cage for my husband to lock me in...lol J/K!!! I really do not do well at all on large steroid doses...
Fingers crossed this works. I am not starting my round today obviously. I was due to start back up again, but I need to get these hives under control first.
