Whenever I come across the question “Allergic to :” in slam books, orkut details, anything at all…I end up writing pretty proud “ People who boast, show offs etc” I never thought I was allergic to anything at all.
Came back from home with mixed feelings but was happy to be at office and Bangalore! On Tuesday I went all full of my lively self to office. Spent the first half of the day distributing Guruvayoor prasadam and banana halwa (I forgot these at home on Monday!).
And then lo and behold, my whole face swells up and rashes appear all over my body and to top it all it was itching all over!!!! Aaaaaa… Within a matter of an hour the situation turned from BAD to WORSE and god knows what!!
I was rushed to the hospital (if you can call waiting in the traffic for 20 minutes as rushed). The doctor looked at me and asked me a series of questions when all the while I was controlling the tendency to itch everywhere possible. After his never ending questions, he looks at me and asks, “Are you alone?” I have been talking to him for the past 15 minutes, me alone and he asks this nonsense question. Damn his eyesight!! Ok… so “me alone” goes and gets the injections and stuff and wait for the dreaded moment!
Now given a chance I would have put this off even if I were at my last breath. Atleast I know I am going to die then…But no other option when I have to tie down my hands to stop itching! I looked pitifully at the assistant. Now he was a handsome guy (thinking about it now!) He smiled and said it won’t hurt. After 10 minutes of poking at 3 places on my arm he succeeds in finding my vein. I looked at him with half anger and half tears (Yeah that hurt for nothing!!)
He told me to sleep in the hospital for 3 hours as he had given me a sedative. (What! You didn’t tell me this before. How can a good girl like me sleep here alone) I said, “No way! I’ll go home and sleep.” He then asked me to wait to see if the itching went. Thankfully it went! And thanks a million to “Space Impact” and “Snake” on my mobile I kept myself awake for 15 minutes with lot of difficulty (Jai Nokia!).
I somehow managed to get home and slept the rest of the day..Seems fine today. But well every time it’s itching today due to any reason, I panic!! At the end of the day…”All’s well that itches well!!”
