Hey guy. I really have to apologize for not being around much lately. September has been a rather rough month for me, health wise, and it been taking all I've got to keep motivated some times. Two weeks ago I has a stomach up set that caused me to pass blood. I ended have to get a colonoscope (due to family history, here was a chance it could have been Crohn's disease or Diverticulitis ) which did at the earliest date they could get me in, which was a week later. Nothing turned up, and I haven't had any more incidents since, so the cause is still a mystery. I know it was worth getting checked out just to make sure, but between the prep you have to do before hand (you really get to appreciate the term "Howling Skitters" ) and the drugs they give you to know you out, I was pretty much out of it for three days.
Fun doesn't end there. 2 days ago, I broke out in a 5 alarm case of hive. My torso was covered, and my face swelled up to a scary degree. We don't know what triggered it. it was the worst painful itch I had ever felt, and I've had some bad poison ivy.
I know stress can cause hive, but at this point the symptoms point more to a sever allergic reaction to something. I'm on meds, and doing better, though they haven't gone away yet (the face swelling is gone though, all I have are the welts).
I'm not posting this for sympathy...... I just felt I owned the DA community an explication for my lack of participation lately.
Take care, Frocky.
