Life Tips- Don’t Touch the Poison Ivy

Seriously. I’m just getting over a two-week itchy hell. Probably pulled some poison ivy vines in my new garden bed (we moved in August), got the oil on my gloves, and then touched my wrists, stomach, and legs. After a week of itchiness, I gave up and went to the medical center to get steroids to stop the allergic response. I’m just now starting to feel better. For about a week, I couldn’t sleep for more than an hour at a time because the itchiness would wake me up whenever my legs touched each other.


If you live in Bloomington, be sure to know what poison ivy looks like. A good primer.
