Falling Apart

I was having a nice day. Spent some time doing a little early afternoon wine tasting. Enjoyed a bit of chocolate and cheeses too.

Decided to walk 7 miles since the weather was conducive and I continue to feel like a stuffed PMS pig. Half way through my walk, I feel my hands are stiff. I look at my hands only to find they are completely and utter bloated - so bloated as to be about 4 times their normal size!

I think to myself - "Self, are we dehydrated that our paws are gigantic, stiff, and teetering between numb and pain?" Of course at this point I am only half way through my walk so as such, I must really put the gas on to complete my exercise and figure out WTF is going on with my fingers.

I completed my 7 mile loop in 1 hour, 40 minutes and made a call to try to figure out what is going on with my hands. Appears to google up as an allergic reaction. Only thing I had all day was the few samples at the tasting. Must have been something in cheese or the chocolate. I have never had an allergic reaction to anything before. And it sucks.

Here six hours later, the swelling has been reduced significant but the stiff, achy pain still continues. Hopefully everything will be back to normal by the morning. I really do not want to test out my new insurance.

I am falling apart! What is going on? First my blood pressure incident on Tuesday, then coming within millimeters of being a hood ornament on Thursday, and finally today's adventure. No wonder I am exhausted!

Oh girl, you and me both!

Go see your doctor, seriously swelling, blood pressure incident= NOT GOOD. Go, go now.

I'll wait here.
