After the Storm

After the storm_1 After the storm_2 After the storm_3 After the storm_4

Wearing:

Forever 21 shirt
Topshop doberman motif sweater
Joe's Jeans
Abercrombie & Fitch jacket
Topshop wool hat
Burberry rain boots
Vintage quilted purse
MAC "Rebel" lipstick

You guys are not going to believe how crazy this year has already been.  For the past month, I've been trying to figure out why my hand was swelling up (you can actually see some swelling in these pics...look at my hand that's holding the purse).  I spent my New Years at a doctor's office and last Sunday night at the ER.  I barely got out of the hospital today!  My hand is finally getting better.  It's such a relief that most of the swelling has gone away.  Perhaps the only good thing about being hospitalized is that it makes me appreciate life so much more.  It was a scary experience and yet I felt so loved.  My loved ones came to see me (and stay with me) and they brought me lots of delicious food (they knew I'd hate what the hospital served...I'm picky and they know me well lol).

By now you're probably wondering what caused an intense swelling (and unbearable itching) of my right hand.  Well...I was seen by at least 5 different doctors and not one of them could pinpoint the exact cause.  But I have a feeling that my severe allergic reaction was caused by a giant millipede I found in my backyard...and picked up.  Not smart.  But I am a big fan of creepy crawly bugs.  They don't scare me at all  :)  In fact, I find most of them to be quite adorable.  After this experience, it is safe to say that I will NEVER pick up a millepede ever again in my life.

By the way, these pictures do not show the extreme puffyness of my hand.  I'll post those pics soon.  These pictures were taken two weeks ago after a huge storm.  I never had time to post.  Which reminds me...I need to reply to most of your comments!  It's just hard to type with one hand so bear with me :)

    P.S., Thanks for your comment on my Chambray Dreams post! If you have an Urban Outfitters near where you live, you should totally try looking for a Chambray shirt there. They've got a lot of different washes, and they're slim-fitting!

  16. Omigosh, what a scary thing to happen! I'm afraid of all bugs so I'd never pick up a millipede anyway but I am very familiar with all sorts of allergic reactions and know they are not fun. Hope you are feeling better now!

    Love your sweater!!
