I finally made it to the doctor's office yesterday for this horrible poison ivy. It's on the right side of my body from the soles of my foot to my shoulders and had begun to spread to my left side. I have gotten little done (accept my drawings that I can do while sitting in our one air conditioned room in my underwear, lol) since Monday when this started. Clothing hurts so much and I literally was only putting on pants to go feed the horses in the morning (and I missed a few of those.) They told me they didn't do shots, which everyone else had told me worked like magic, so they gave me a prednisone prescription instead. I've never taken this before but I have to say, I'm liking the side effects (tons and tons of energy) fare more than the antihistamine's (sluggish, dopey, sleepy and irritable...I'm blaming that last one on the medicine.) Last night, I actually took my first 30 minute walk in four days! And I ran part of it...up a hill that usually has me huffing and puffing when I walk it! Funny part is, I took my dog with me and I ran him up that hill but, when we looped back, he ran me down the hill because he heard a deer (dragon, lol) snort in the woods. Big ol' brave dog...hahahaha.

I've had several drug induced drawings come out of the last four days. I've been calling them my acid trip drawings, lol. This last one, in the photo, was influenced by both the antihistamine and the prednisone....it's been a wild and whacky ride. lol

Now, I'm headed out for my morning walk for the first time in a week...yay, me! Going to use this extra energy while I have it. 

Happy Saturday all!!
