I was raced to Fiona Stanley Hospital following a swift surprise onset of what appeared to be my inexplicable ‘anaphylaxis’. By this I mean that some time after 8pm my stomach began cramping, eyes reddened and itching, my lips swelling and airways closing. There is a small amount of time for me to seek medical attention before my airways close off and I lose consciousness. I made it and was treated, only losing three days to catching up on sleep. Exactly a week later my skin decided that it was not pleased with something and it began reacting to another mystery allergy with a my full-blown invisible skin rash. For the fortnight since then I have been coping with the skin allergy only with daily antihistamine prescription medicine Endep.

At this point I have to state very clearly that for the most part I am just pleased that I haven’t yet experienced any of the colds that are making the rounds at present. Prior to the hospital visit I had been to see my GP (General Practitioner) Evs regarding some other concerns. One of these was contraception and the other was a pain in my lower abdomen.
