Can't catch a man, so why should I catch a break

As it turns out, now, at the age of 30, I am allergic to penecillan. Never was before. Never was an issue.

Oh, but it is now.

This morning I woke up with a red rash ALL OVER my body. My face was red and puffy. Generally I looked like I was going through another case of the chicken pox again. Only worse.

So at 10 a.m. I drove myself to the ER (doctor's office was closed) where the incredibley hot ER doc took one look at me and said, "You're having an allergic reaction to the Amoxicilan." Great.

The rest of my day has been spent in a Benedryl induced haze attempting to clear the damn thing up and ignoring the horrific itching going on on my back.
