The Top Ten Reasons Groovy is Thankful for the Itchy Hive Attack

10. I did have a bad reaction, but I did NOT go into anaphylactic shock!

9. I got to read all the Agatha Christie mysteries I wanted. I just love Miss Marple. *sigh*

8. By God's gracious providence, I can afford all the lotions, potions, and meds I am using.

7. My hubby felt sorry for me and bought me chocolate.

6. I have infintely more empathy for friends with chronic skin conditions!

5. I can appreciate God's humor in allowing this to happen to me almost immediately after I started a study unit on "Patience" with the girlies.

4. I've been reminded how many people love me and care for me - including my very sweet and thoughtful daughters.

3. GrammaJ has been genuinely comforting instead of lecturing me. (She HAS been in anaphylactic shock; more than once!)

2. I got out of a week's worth of housework. :-D

1. IT'S ALMOST OVER!!!!!!!!!!!

I hate, hate HATE anaphylactic shock. I'm allergic to a lot of things but ironically I've gone into shock from allergy shots more than from actual real world problems. Sometimes the cure is worse than the condition!

What a great list - and I'm so thankful for you that it's over!

Oooh! Mysteries, chocolate, sympathy, AND no housework for a week? Sweetie, even I would put up with the itchies for a week if I got that kind of treatment.

Ok, maybe not really, but, you know... sort of... but only for a week.
