Hello all! This is my first holiday since being formally diagnosed and, even though I have remained slightly cautious about the diagnosis, being away has confirmed it for me, in my mind.
My first five days were spent in the blazing heats of Hong Kong. No sooner had I arrived when great big welts appeared on my shoulders, chest and arms. I have also found myself taking cat naps during the day - sometimes up to three!
The past four days, I have been in China, where the weather has been a mix of blazing sun and torrential rain. Still beautiful welts on my shoulders, etc, but my friend and I have been bitten several times. Her bites are neat and small, but mine are huge and have been oozing for days. It's still raining and am off to Macau today, to see what else I can pick up!
Hope you are all staying as healthy as possible.
