A Great Big Shot in the Rear

Sundown  for Tex @ Good Fences 

             ABC Wednesday- "I" is for Poison IVY- the one thing in all my life I have never experienced, until this week.  Now I know the agony, the itchy, awful, horrible thing that is urushiol oil, and the wonderful, blissful, sublime...oh heavenly relief that is AKA as Kenalog.

  4. I was once afflicted with poison ivy after spreading bark dust and I wouldn't wish that agony on an enemy.

  5. My goodness, that looks awfully painful. I'm glad you got some medicine to help!
    I've never had a run in with poison ivy, and by the looks of it, that's a good thing.
    Please feel better soon.

  6. I hope you feel better soon!! I have never reacted to poison ivy. Since I grew up on a farm and played in the woods, it looks like I would have gotten into it at some point. So maybe I'm not allergic. But I'm not going to experiment to find out.

  8. We have its equally nasty cousin poison oak out here and you have my empathy! Also, a warning to be very careful about fresh mangos as the skin can have sap containing urushiol on it. I didn't know and had the worse ever reaction requiring lots of meds. I can eat the fruit, just can't come in contact with that yucky sap.
    Hope you feel better soon!
    Blessings,
    Aimee
    PS: Great late summer/early autumn light in your photo!

  9. Hope the meds help, and all back to normal very soon, so sorry as it does look incredibly painful. Hugs that might help, Jean.

  10. Lots of luck for a quick recovery. I've have it many times when I was a kid and young adult. I have since learned how to avoid it.

  15. Lovely shot - but sorry to hear about the poison ivy.

  16. I've been in and around our poison oak, even purposely rubbed it on my arm as a test. Have never been infected. One of the lucky few to be immune I guess. Hope you are doing better.

  22. Gorgeous golden light! I feel your pain...... calamine lotion is what we used to use. Awful, pasty stuff, but it worked to stop the itch. Sorry. :(

    ReplyDelete
  23. Oh you poor thing! When I lived in AR and TX...I got it SO bad! I would be so miserable, and always in the hottest part of the summer. It takes a long time to get rid of it. I'm itchy just looking at your pics! Take care of yourself and try to stay cool! Hugs, Diane

  26. Ooh, did not know about Kenalog.. Just Googled it and now I have a weapon besides really hot water for relief. Great to know it works. I've only had it once but the memory is fresh. I feel your misery. Hope you are totally free soon.

  27. So very sorry, Terri. I have never had it.
    Hope you feel better very soon.

  28. Sorry for what I'm sure is misery from the ugly Ivy. My daughter's entire family got it once while doing yard work on rent property. They even had to all through all their shoes away.

  29. So sorry that you came in contact with Poision Ivy. It sure doesn't look like fun.
    Such a pretty sunset though.

    ReplyDelete
  30. What a beautiful picture! And I'm sorry about the poison ivy...that looks really uncomfortable. Hope it's soon gone!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Oh, that looks so miserable. Hope it goes away soon.

  32. That is an incredible shot! I mean the sundown. Although the poison ivy on your arm is also incredibly painful looking. I hope you recover quickly! Hug.

  34. I've taken packs of pills to get rid of poison ivy several times, as I am very allergic to this weed. Thanks for stopping by my blog...I'll join in.

  35. That is one gorgeous sunset! Poor you on the poison ivy. When I was a kid, I could roll around in it and not have a problem. No more. Now all I have to do is look at it across the road and I'm covered with the stuff. Hope it feels better soon!

  36. I love the light in your photo.

    I'm badly allergic to poison ivy meself...sometimes I'd get it on my foot, after getting it on my arm, just from the water in the shower dripping down.

  37. I had a boyfriend in college who was burning brush in his back yard and some poison ivy got in it. Because he was standing close by, somehow he was exposed to poison ivy in a major way and he got the rash ALL over, including all over his face. He looked horrible for a couple of weeks. I remember going to the fair with him and everyone kept staring at him. I wanted to punch people for staring.

  38. Oh, wow, that is a beautiful photo...and I can so identify with the poison ivy. When I was a kid, I was seldom without some somewhere on me.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Beautiful sky! I hope your poison ivy clears up quickly!

    ReplyDelete
  40. OMG!!! Poison Ivy; sure must have been (hope the past tense) hard and unbearable...
    Beautiful sundown picture love the orange color, Terri.

    Thank you so much for your words to my former post, my husband was so excited with the wonderful performance of saxophone player.

    Sending Lots of Love and Hugs from Japan, xoxo Miyako*

  41. Terri that is a beautiful sundown picture... simply beautiful. The light!
    Poison ivy totally freaks me out. I use to worry that when the Z Cat would head to the woods (supervised) she would bring the PI oil back with her on her fur. CH is always getting in PI! Poor arm, poor you.. hope you are doing better on this cold fall Saturday morning!

    ReplyDelete
  42. Ouch! I've never had poison ivy and I really don't want to find out what it's like! I hope yours goes away SOON!

    ReplyDelete
  43. I had poison ivy every year for 7 years.
    I had to put calamine lotion on it to help take the itching away . Are you using that. Also don't go near the oak tree.

    You know that song. Tie the yellow ribbon around the old Oak tree. Careful of it. As I had that too like poison ivy. . Mine want to my face. Again not a nice thing. I do like your picture. I have new blog. If you ever wish to comment.

  45. I don't think I've suffered from poison ivy, but I've had all other kinds of allergies. I feel for you...what discomfort and agonizing itch...drives you insane---almost.

    Love your fence image...so serene.
