I would like to take this chance to remind you all of something you probably already know- LISTEN to your body. If something feels off, look in to it. Please.
On Saturday I was diagnosed with Steven Johnson's Syndrome, a potentially fatal reaction to medication that I was taking. This syndrome is not caused by any particular medication. It is very rare, and is essentially a very severe allergic reaction. I thought I was going in simply because Dusty insisted on it. I was certain I had a cold and maybe a viral rah. As it turns out, SJS is really serious. And very scary. I am lucky that is was caught essentially as soon as the rash began. Really, as soon as it began to form I was being treated.
I am getting better. The rash has cleared up now and the headache has basically gone away. At this point, I think the biggest thing we're waiting for is for me to come off the medication. I need the medication- but it makes me feel crappy!
Anyhow, just wanted to tell you all that I am ok. And I am lucky. And I really, really appreciate all the love and support that has been sent my way!
