July 8th was my first day to quit smoking and boy what a day. First, it was my dad's birthday and so the whole family met for lunch. Second,my cat got his paw slammed in the door and was bleeding all over the place. He's going to the vet today. He'll be alright. And finally, I was eating raspberries and blackberries, which I've eaten before without any problems. But this time I had an allergic reaction and my face started swelling up. It got so big, so fast I felt a panic attack coming on. My husband called the ambulance. I told my husband,if it got any bigger, I didn't think I could breathe. By the time the ambulance got to the house, the swelling was going down. They said it was a reaction to the berries. I took some medicine and went right to bed. Today is my second day to quit smoking. I hope it's less stressful than yesterday. Also, I was shoppping yesterday to keep my mind off of smoking. I broke out in a sweat all of a sudden and it was inside an air-conditioned building. Is that one of the side effects of not smoking?
