I always know when I have been run down or under the weather, I end up with hives and my eczema really plays up. My body, as it has no natural immunity to ANYTHING, overcompensates and pretends to be allergic to itself as it attacks itself. Although I have NO allergies to anything, apart from, it seems, myself. So my body has loads of clusters of hives and my face is swollen, crusty and painful with eczema and I have to take anti-histamines to try and calm it down.
Needless to say, my chest isn't best pleased by all of this either, and I have been coughing and spluttering like mad. This isn't the most fun in the world, but it is all par for the course really when you live with Brittle Asthma and have such a bad immune system. I was paranoid about gaining weight, but it seems again that I have lost some, probably due to the fact that the last week or so, I didn't eat much, until yesterday and the day before when I porked down like it was going out of fashion! But this is a typical pattern for me, while coming down with something, I will eat like a horse for 2 or 3 days, then will do up to 2 weeks on nothing or near as damn it.
I managed to get some photos of the slabs that caused my accident, all I have to say there is thanks Google! for Google Earth!! I got some photos of the exact point I tripped, I have copies of my x-rays and a photo of my foot just afterwards. SUCCESS!!!
