That happened to my sister, turned out she was allergic to oak. I know Naked Grape isn't done in Oak Barrels, maybe try that (I'm sure there are other brands) and see if you're ok?

It breaks my heart a little hearing of people not being able to drink wine

for several years now, at least a few times a year, my lips suddenly swell up and become dry beyond belief! there's no rhyme or reason to when and why it happens.

i have to put cortisone on 3 times a day and use piles of Blistex Medicated Ointment!



i'm starting week 2 of the latest episode, but i think it's finally beginning to return to normal.

Mine were doing that. ..it was a reaction to lip balm! Swelling then horrible peeling. even lip balms I've used for years. No clue as to why and no rhyme or reason as to when it would happen. I threw out all lip balm I had and started new ones. So far the yes to line of lip balm is okay and Avon moisture wear.

Ouch! That is beyond uncomfortable. My lips have done that a few times thanks to reactions. Sometimes it's food, something in a lip balm or stick... Who knows. Winter is always the worst time for it, too.

I read CA's post on her hives that might be from wine. You never know what might set you off. I have a small rash on my stomach, and no idea what broke me out. It just came up.

One of my extended co workers, EMS, had a horrible reaction when eating a restaurant they frequent last week. He ate the exact same things as everyone else, things he always gets on the lunch buffet, got back into the Ambulance and made a comment that his face felt weird. By the time they got to the hospital, which is 3 minutes away, his face was puffy and in hives and his lips were 3x their normal size. Weird.

Rou, try some good, plain, yogurt that is packed with the healthy stuff. Anything but the grocery store crap It is amazing when it comes to lip reactions. Eat a little and rub some on your lips. It works. Not an instant miracle worker, but it works well.

Nope, the yogurt won't hurt at all. Well, it might sting just a touch at first if they are cracked (lol) but then it will feel really cold and good.

I need to re arrange my albums (or should I say partly my brothers albums which I coveted when he moved out and left them and the rest are mine). I have them stuck in any and everywhere I have the room now. I have the hardest time finding what I am looking for. That's a task for another day, though.

Nooooooo! Maybe it's your relatives you're allergic to! I know I break into hives when I've been around my family too long!

Oh!

You're a harsh task-mistress, B-wavy!

I invite you to have to sit in your car, beeping like some kind of incapacitated moron, desperately waving at the mechanic inside to come to your rescue. The kind of mechanic who uses your name a lot, as in "Wow, Claudine. How did this happen, Claudine? I'm not even sure what to do, Claudine. Claudine, Claudine, Claudine."

I'll have you know she's in bed, snoring away. And we had a nice long walk this afternoon. She's completely guiltless. Oblivious. Chubby, adorable, and oblivious.

p.s.
I'm stealing that picture. So there!

Lol. Good night. My living room is a mad house. I'm typing and screaming at the tv and my friend are pacing and screaming. Oh, TWD brings out the maniac in us all. Everyone needs to collect themselves now.

I hope we can resume our conversation on satire when everyone gets done with few things. It was a good one. We're all immense lovers of anything that uses stereotypes and injustices as a mirror on itself, and simply let them (as I once beautifully heard it put) bask in their own hypocrisy. It was always funny to me, when reading about specific songs or artists, who were pegged wrong or far too seriously. We were talking about Zappa in particular, since his music had a huge history of being misunderstood and shunned. He was an incredibly open minded member of the "silent generation" (you know they really should have called them them the often overlooked generation. some of the best writers, thinkers and entertainers and notable/important/influential people in the world came out of this generation, but they were hard to hear over the loud and large generations they were stuck in between. they actually started some of the most important movements, while others tried to take a great deal of credit for it or should I say some hit the ground running with the cause the silent gen's were silenced for saying, and somewhere down the line the great theme was eventually turned into a theme park) who despised isms and phobias. He was, from everything I have read, an independent who didn't like right or left extremes, loved the premiss that America is based on, but wanted to make sure the basics actually worked right. Avid supporter of freedom of speech, and went after institutions that bothered him (religions, communism, Marxism- anyone who thought one person could set rules for all individual and allowed excessive government intrusion, the far right swing our country took at times, etc) with whit and lyrics. He also set up voting booths at some of his concerts (set up by the women's voting league), and urged his fans to consider it an incredibly important right. Instead he was pegged as a horrible sexist, homophobic, racist, republican. Not even close. Most of the songs people called him homophobic for were played constantly in gay bars. Idk. Didn't know the man and no one is perfect but I understood he wasn't coming from a bad place at 4. Idk how some adults never could. Sigh. It's been 20 years since his death. Guess that's why he's been heavy on my playlist of late.

I'm not one that complains a lot but this really makes me have mixed emotions. I love my mom and all but it seems she doesn't get the point on how I feel about my health going down the drain. I've went to her plenty of times that I need to be checked out. I'm gaining weight back that I lost due to not getting the right foods etc. For the love of Jesus I'm tired of being on the back burner. I'm an young adult that hasn't done anything in life because I feel like that she doesn't want me to be independent due to my disabilities. Thinking of college and all makes me have anxiety. I wanna go to beauty school. I've put that on hold this year. I would feel less anxious or whatever it is I feel if I was healthy. I never showed of having self esteem problems or confidence. I hide things easily. I've been like that since I was a kid. I wanna improve myself for the better. I gave up the party scene 2 years ago. I learned how people can be definitely the male gender haha. I'm just not that strong like I thought but sure don't take rude people seriously anymore.

Ashkins - what is holding you back? Plenty of people go to school, work with disabilities. Depending on what disability you have, it will definitely be harder, but you can do it. You need to build up your confidence and find ways to cope with anxiety. It is hard when you first strike out on your own. There are so many things you don't know, including yourself and limits. Is your mother supportive when you need help? Sometimes parents feel guilty when their child has a disability and try to protect them from the world by sheltering them. Her intentions are probably good. Try to include her in your changes so she doesn't feel threatened by them.

I have to say this sound more like a problem with friends, family, and schools than the color of a toy. I grew up playing with my brothers multi colored Lego's and baby dolls in pink dresses. I help put together race tracks and raced cars with my brothers for hours, and then I would put on my tinker bell makeup, and after I would once again steal their Kiss poster. I carried Hammer Head in my Dukes of Hazzard and A Team lunch boxes, while wearing R2D2 Underoo's under my pink clothes, and twirled a pink baton for fun. I would whip your butt at Space Invaders, and then watch Jem. I played with Tonka Trucks and was obsessed with horror and ghost stories. My brother started showing me math flash cards at a young age. Still hate it, loved science (with an extra fondness for dissection in Biology), DeVry wanted me, pondered being an electrical engineer because I'm good at fixing and wiring things (again, thanks to my brother for teaching me). From what I have gathered, interests in science and engineering have decreased in boys and girls. Cuz they are too busy texting to do anything else. Lol

Do pay attention to the second comment saying that studies show no one doing the studies has actually been able to agree on the topic.

were you drinking red or white? I'm allergic to sulfites and red has less of them. Whites and champagne, well it only takes couple of sips and my tongue starts to tingle

After an amazing show last weekend, I will no longer be doing shows with my friend. Turns out she was talking about me behind my back, saying I stole her ideas. When I asked her about it, she said she had to accept the fact that she didn't own crocheting. I was very confused considering I've been selling crocheted items for years BEFORE she opened her etsy store. Heck, I helped her start her store, everything from the name to shipping to payments to getting into shows. So pissed I don't even know what to say.


Last night, an ex of mine was supposed to stop by to help my cousin out. He got there after everyone left. One minute he telling me about me about his grandmother passing away and the next he was pulling out his p***** and trying to convince me to have s*x with him. So pissed. He was so aggressive, persistent and he was grabbing me. I wil not go into the details here. I had to put him out of my house, which took a good 20 minutes. SO ANGRY!!!!!

OMG. How awful and scary! Did you think he was going to rape you? Was he drunk? I'm so sorry you experienced this! How did you finally get him to leave?
