Dear friends here at PIP,
I'm asking for your prayers for these continuing health problems I've been having. Some of you may already know that during 4th of July weekend 2006 I was bitten on the stomach by a spider ( probably brown recluse ) and developed a large open sore that took about 6 months to heal. In Aug of 2006 I began to develope an itching rash with small sores on my arms and legs, after going to three different dermatologists I was told that I had what is called an ID reaction where the body actually thinks it is allergic to its own skin and starts to attack it from the inside out. The doctor felt that this was triggered by the spider bite. The rash is very itchy and requires the use of steroid creams 2 -3 times daily to keep it tolerable and has spread to my back also now. It calms down a bit from time to time but never really goes away. Then to top things off in Jan 2007 I started to develope severe respitory allergies to everything - dust, molds, grass, pollen, weeds, cats and dogs, you name it - that I was never allergic to before. I'm currently taking 4 allergy shots a week as well as claritin, nasonex, and atarax on a daily basis all without much success. I can't get the doctors to say so, but I feel this all stems back to the spider bite. Between the rash and the allergies I'm becoming to feel beat down by this whole thing especially since it has been going on now for over a year and there are no real answers as to why this is happening. I ask for your prayers, if not for healing perhaps just for the strength to continue this route until they figure out what is going on the the correct way to treat things. Thanks  
Ruth

You're in my thoughts too Ruth. Can't even imagine what you are going through, must be horrible and frightening, not knowing when it all will stop, let alone all the pain and itching.
Hugs are on their way.

I'm praying for your healing, Ruth.  I have suffered with allergies and I know how frustrating they can be but it sounds as though you're having much more than your share.  I am so sorry.  Joyce

My thoughts and special prayers are with you Ruth, that you will experience a complete healing. I have been in the natural health industry for many years and have found natrual healing methods to work very well. If you are interested, contact Marge Tindal and she will give you my email address. I know of several natural remedies that could possibly help you. God bless and take care.

Dear Ruth: What a nightmare for you!  Have you checked with the Mayo Clinic to see if they have a department that deals with spider bites that are so toxic? Or there may be another clinic in some area where such spiders are prevalent. I have a friend in Nevada who is having similar problems from a spider bite and I know she is searching the country for a treatment source. If I hear of anything worthwhile from her, I will let you know.

God bless and keep you strong.

Love

Hey you, thank goodness you are in the right place to lick this thing, and have the right attitude to give it a swift kick in its unknown butt right?  I wish you tons of strength to endure this until it is over, and also wish I was there to give you a friend's hug.  Hang in there trooper.

I hope you turn to be better in no time dear...
I wish I could help doing more than prayers... but unfortunately, I am far far away, in a place where I can do nothing but pray for you to be OK!

You have my prayers...

Ruth, whenever things seem long term, the best to do is to live from day to day, from moment to moment. And until they can resolve these terrible symptoms you are having, I pray that you can find happy moments in between. I wish you well. You deserve to be well and happy
I contiinue to pray for you
Love you dearly
