Draft Day

Today was Draft Day for our APBA baseball league. daisy_knotwise agreed to drop me off and pick me up, given that I had taken another heavy dose of Benadryl this morning for the sulfite allergy attack that started on Thursday. As I was checking my LJ, I saw that qnofhrt who is a pharmacy tech had mentioned that I should have called my doctor to see about getting prednisone.

That seemed like a good idea, so I gave him a call and told him that I'd fallen into the sulfite pit and couldn't get up, but had been dosing heavily with Benadryl since Thursday. He said that was normally a good choice until he asked for symptoms, which included swelling, itching, and hives. That was enough to get the prednisone bomb dropped on the allergy attack.

I am not yet in perfect shape, but I am one heckuva lot better off. :) I do have to keep a close eye on my blood sugar and what I eat, because the prednisone is not good for sugar control. Of course, neither is itching and lack of sleep...

Anyway, so off I went to the draft for our eight-man league. I was drafting fifth, having squeaked into the playoffs, which meant that I was in a reasonable position to snag some talent, especially given that there were two quality starting pitchers available in the draft -- we have a cap on the quality starting, as otherwise there would be no lower quality starters in the league and no one would ever get a hit. :)
