Allergic to Christmas Tree?
This year at Christmas, my husband and I wanted to decorate for the holidays. We bought a live noble fir tree from a Christmas tree lot. We got it home and set up in the stand. It was very strong smelling and made my eyes water and skin itch while I was helping him put it up. My son though, who has food allergies, didn't touch it but woke up from his nap with hives. I gave him Benadryl then we had dinner. He woke up the next morning covered in hives again. I gave him another dose of Benadryl and took him to daycare. He was fine throughout the day. I got him home that night and wanted to take a few pictures of him in front of the Christmas tree. Within minutes he had hives all over his face and were spreading over his body. At first we thought it was a reaction to a new food I had made, but after being around the tree we were convinced otherwise. The Christmas tree was removed from the house and we put up an artificial tree. Within a few days of the tree being gone, the hives stopped coming back. Has anyone else experienced something like this?

I went to the doctor and ER multiple times and was discovered I have...
Hi! I think I have an allergy to herbs used in cooking (oregano, rosemary, thyme, etc). I can smell them in foods, they smell rotten and mouldy. I have to leave the room if someone heats up a herbed dinner as it makes me really nauseous. I can taste them too for the most part. The food tastes mouldy and makes me gag. If I accidently eat some, it is unpleasant for hours with stomach cramps and...

I had to have a lung biopsy, and I have cancer. A very rare form that doesn't have any standard treatment. There just isn't a lot of case history for this. It is epithelioid hemangio endothelioma. The cancer support group doesn't talk every day. I can understand why. I'm waiting for the oncologist to call back for an appointment, and will hear in the next few days. Who knew. Ha!
It's so hard dealing with pain especially when you don't get any support from the person who your supposed to be closest to. So hard when your trying to deal with pain and that person treats you worse than the pain. Having hard time understanding why. unless you are having a good Day you are treated like crap and they make you feel worthless.
