Was at work and someone brought in a can of mixed nuts.



Had a couple of handfulls kept working,


Boy my hands itch,,,,,,,,Went and washed them in hot water and put on some lotion

Man oh man do they ITCH, and my tounge is starting to feel like it has peeper on it.

DAMN MY HANDS ITCH NOW MY LIPS ARE FEELING FUNNY


Everyone I work with is looking at me strange, leadman gave me a tavist D tablet he had then all of a sudden I realized my left hand was too swolen to close.

So off to the ER. I go.......
got a shot of epinephrine, Benadryl, and a steroid.

Then I wait.

and wait.

Finnaly after about 90 minutes the Dr. gets back and checks me over.
Hands are some better and the hives are going away.
So now for the next couple of weeks I have to have a Epipen with me.
And no more nuts.



But I love salted in the shell peanuts
I like breathing even more.

You have never experienced this before?
I've heard of people developing allergies, but DAMN.
If you are allergic to peanuts, you are in for a world of suck.

Sure it was the peanuts?

Might have been another nut in the mix that didn't agree with you.

Your mission, is to buy a similar can of nuts, and sort them out.
Eat one kind at a time to determine what sets you off.

Reminds me of that chris rock comedy. "Starving people ain't allergic to shit."

Or something like that

I get the same reaction if I eat pistachios that are in the shell. Funny thing is they don't bother me if they are aready shelled.
