...especially in the middle of the night at 4 a.m.
The family across the street is moving and has generously let us take their extra stuff. I was helping my parents carry some of the furniture last night when I started getting an itch. At first we thought it was caused by dry skin or bug bites, but the itching became worse with bumps began appearing everywhere. It eventually got so bad that I couldn't sleep. I figured it was nothing more than hives, but Dad insisted on taking me to the hospital just to make sure it wasn't anything serious.
The doctor took one look and confirmed it was indeed hives. A nurse gave me medicine to suppress the allergic reaction; that must have been some pretty powerful stuff as the symptoms went away within an hour. From what the doctor and the nurse told me, the hives were likely caused by food allergies. Considering that I didn't get any sleep until coming back from the hospital, this was undoubtedly an exhausting experience. I just hope it doesn't happen again. *fingers crossed*
One thing for sure is that I'm not looking forward to the bill. From what I've heard, emergency room visits are expensive as hell. :\
