Since I have a lot of stories, here's my last allergic reaction episode. I picked up bronchitis from my now 5 year old (just had his bday this week hehe) a few months ago. As I have a weak immune system from radiation, I had to go to my doctor. He decided to give me a shot of antibiotics. Trust me, antibiotics are not my friend (I'm allergic to so many). He gave me a shot of rocephen. I at least had the brains to convince him to watch me for 20 minutes. Within a few minutes my airway was swelling and I was beat red covered in hives. The doctor and nurse got so thrown off, they didnt know what to do. So I looked at my doctor and said "I'm grabbing my Epi pen now and going to the ER or your gonna tell the nurse to get 50 or 60 mg benedryl stat" He looked at me then told her to listen to me and go get the benedryl. She was back within a lil bit and jabbed me fast right in front of the doctor even (normally the doctors leaves). They kept me til I went back to normal. But I have had to use my epi pen before, and trust me it is not fun.
