    Girlfriend has a RAGING battle with poison ivy, and by the looks of it my reaction is 2 days behind. One thing is for sure, poison ivy is some BULLSHIT

    Word.

    So far I haven't gotten it but that is just a matter of time. The only good thing about poison ivy is that it isn't as bad as poison oak or poison sumac. I had poison oak once- it literally made me sick and my legs looked like they'd been in a fire. It took weeks to recover from it.

    my fear is the duration. A couple nights, alright fine. Two weeks and i think this is where life ends lol.

    im hoping to get lucky and avoid the wrath. I have a persistent itch on both calves, but it’s not splotchy or anything. A couple small bumps. The lady however, full blown bubbles up her arms and midsection. All the skin looks like it is actively on fire. I think the plan is for her to head to urgent care later to request a steroid injection. Hydrocortisone and Benadryl to get us through the nights.

    if i was up last night in misery, i can’t imagine her agony.

    I've never gotten poison ivy. I'm pretty sure I don't react to it and I couldn't pick it out of a lineup if you paid me.

    My wife is deathly allergic to the stuff though. It gets near her and it ends up in her lungs every time.

    never heard of a money allergy

    kidding of course that sounds f***ing terrible. Any time shit impacts breathing it’s obviously a giant red flag. I feel light cold symptoms today but nothing major. It’s gotten worse for the last 3-4 days but it’s slow. Hopefully never gets much worse than it is now.

    You don't have to come into direct physical contact with it to get it, I've gotten it just by getting too close to it with the lawn mower. Apparently the sap can be airborne :(

    As for identifying it: "Shiny leaves of three, leave them be". :nod:

    I had a couple encounters with poison ivy when I was a kid, but that's all. I do remember the itch though. :help: And practically bathing in calamine lotion. :confused:

    It’s the worst. Growing up in rural Massachusetts, my experiences with it were all too frequent.

    Is it a new channel? Or are they just advertising it more heavily now? I heard an ad for it on another station and tuned in. Very relaxing indeed.

    Yeah, my wife is the same. Doesn't have to touch it, just be near someone that has. And I've done that to her a few times over the years because I don't pay attention to it at all since it doesn't effect me.

    I purchased one of the new Bruins alternate jerseys a couple of months ago online with Pastrnak #88 on the back. Had to wait a fair while, as the post is understandably slow at the moment. But it finally arrived yesterday. Very pleased - it's such a sleek little number with very clean lines. Simple but it works.

    Excellent. A good showerhead is very underrated! We own our own house now, but back when we used to rent and we were inspecting new places to potentially move into, we'd always try and get a good sneaky look at the shower and see if it was up to scratch. Got to get your priorities right :D

    I like the handheld kind, and this one is magnetic, so no worries about it falling out of the clip. It's a Moen.
