Unflamingbelievable! No sooner do I get rid of swine flu than I go into anaphylactic shock (potentially fatal) because of some undercooked mussels. Massive welts and hives all over my (usually attractive) body – like in some horror B movie. The doctor at the hospital said she’d never seen such extensive body coverage in terms of a reaction, about which I was strangely pleased (well, she was quite pretty). I got antihistamines and steroids and that’s beginning to clear things up. I was allowed to go home from hospital – with a warning that if my chest got tight or my lips swelled, I should call an ambulance… or an agent (cos it’s the new alternative to cosmetic surgery). Sheesh.
didn’t see that coming
