I have a humongo case of poison ivy all over me, mostly my hands so I'm not typing much. It has gone from itchy to painful in the past few days.
I'm going to the DR today to see if he can give me some steroids and more powerful creams. The kicker is, I have no idea where the poison ivy came from, I haven't been near the stuff. It's in the yard but I have been avoiding it. :confused3

If you need something specific send me a PM or post a "B&MB thread". I will have DH help me pop in on occasion. And behave, I'm watching you!!!:rotfl2:

Ouch! Hope the Dr can help. I had a horrible case two years in a row and avoid the stuff like the plague.

Sorry to hear you are uncomfortable with it. You must have gotten it working out in the lawn. See it doesn't pay to mow the grass.;)

Hope you get over the itchies soon.:eek:

hope you feel better soon. pn96 will take care of us!!!!

just a side note:

my mother had it really, i mean REALLY bad a few years ago and someone told me to go to stop and shop and buy kosher salt and have her soak in it. (i mean legs, arms hands, feet....she was covered). so i thought, kosher salt? really? well i did it and snap! it was cleared up in a jiffy! worked like a charm.
hope this helps!

You poor thing! I hope the doctor is able to do something for you.

Yuck and more yuck! I have lots of sympathy for you. I practically look at the plant to get it and it takes way to long to clear all the way up. Caladryl clear is my savior. It covers it to dry it out and helps keep it from spreading any more.

yeah right, sure. :rotfl2:
I am currently painting the living room. For some reason the latex paint makes my hands stop itching. It did the same thing when I painted to boys room, I had poison ivy then too and my hands didn't bother me while I was painting. Plus I can't go outside so I may as well do something right?! And the prednisone makes you have insomnia so I was up til 2 am painting.:rolleyes:

Trouble makers! LOL

Trust me I have thought about painting my legs LOL I'm typing right now to stop from scratching.
The living room is a dark buttery yellow it's actually called bee pollen from Earth elements at Lowes. I love it!! I have a blue grey couch and DH bought some espresso brown bookcases for me so we are going to put those up this week. And don't worry I'm taking pics along the way.;)

I want to have it done by Sat so I can finish revamping my scrap space (I got a new cabinet). Then I'll start painting the kitchen. I am taking the next 6 months to get this house ready to sell so every room is getting a makeover. We never paint or hang pics til we get ready move but this time I might actually get to enjoy the space before we leave it.
Of course I love the color so much I will be painting the next house this color too, maybe in my new scraproom!! This is #1 on my wish list for the house.

Where are you moving to????

BernardandMissBianca

hopefully to Asheville NC. DH is from the south and he loves it there and I'm tired of winter. Plus I can't afford to live in CT anymore. It's getting way to expensive.
If we stayed in CT we would probably move back towards Mass and RI. We liked it better up there. But I think we want to live somewhere where there are more non winter months.

Asheville is beautiful but having lived both in Connecticut and the Ashville area of North carolina I don't think the difference in the winters was very noticable. (Of course we lived near the coast in Connecticut.

We live about 30 minutes from the ocean so we get a good bit of snow. But also in NC you get a longer summer too. I just want to be able to utilize a back yard and pool and outdoor kitchen for more than 3 months. KWIM!

I hate poison ivy- hope you get better soon!:)

Asheville is beautiful! I would love the falls there- so colorful!:cloud9: DH and I have camped in the Smokies a few times and are skipping Disney next year, but are thinking of taking the kids camping there for a few days instead.

DH is partial to Asheville. He has wanted to live there since he was a kid. And I'm more of a mountain person than an ocean person. I don't do water. :rotfl2:

But thanks for the offer!!!

oh dear, I'll be thinking of you!

My dd had it once and the dr said you can get it thru the wind -- we think someone had mowed thru a batch of it near her school and she got it that way.

Take care of yourself!
