So a friend of mine recently contracted (is that the right word?) Poison Ivy—or at least he thought he did.
After a week or so of being unable to touch, scratch or shave, and watching it spread to originally untouched areas of his body, he returned to the doctor. With a re-diagnosis of Poison Oak, he is now on a higher dose of steroid treatments.
What has he learned so far? “Roid Rage” really exists:
“I took 5 steroid pills in one shot (which my Dr brother said was ok)…
I proceeded to drive and almost pulled the car over to scream at someone who didn’t use their blinker, nor make the turn at a speed of which I thought was fast enough!
It was so hard to control myself…”
I guess I should have prefaced what a ‘non-aggressive’ guy he is to begin with. The only fight I’ve ever seen him get in was with a cement curb… and the curb kinda won! (JK buddy!)
Watch for Posion Ivy/Oak/anything suspicious looking among greenery; it may lead to Roid Road Rage…. not good, not good at’all!
