#BrokenWindows

phrantic09 12-18-21 07:31 AM

Hey physicians datlas and MoAlpha. What would explain a sudden breakout in hives all over oneís body?

It started after dinner last night on my neck and chest, Benadryl helps, itís also on my legs and stomach and wrists now. The neck and chest comes and goes. I havenít changed detergent, soap, or shampoo. It makes no sense.

It’s cold and wet out. Will try to do some fake miles in the basement.

Allergic reaction but figuring out specific cause is a challenge. If no lip/throat/tongue swelling, stick with Benadryl or Allegra if Benadryl too sedating.

Anything new or unusual in last night’s dinner?

Thanks. Itís driving me crazy!

I think itís something I ate last night because it happened right after I got home from dinner. Iím guessing I may suddenly be allergic to either eggplant, veal or certain mushrooms.

Action taken, crisis averted.

Attention coffee lovers. I'm thinking about getting a pour over device for when I only want a cup. It could happen today. Already consulted @WhyFi's English guru.

As Iím contemplating going to ride out today while itís snowing, I find myself wishing I had a one bike solution for road and gravel so I didnít have to move a bunch of crap between bikes.

Iím considering an Aspero again w/ 2 sets of wheels and selling both the R3 and the Revolt. That should net me about 6k for something new.

Am I nuts?

I donít get it. Youíll still be moving stuff between bikes - in the form of two wheels. In my mind, thatís a bigger PITA than moving a saddle bag and computer. Iíd just get a second saddle bag and set of lights. Theyíre not that expensive.

And pedals. It also solves some storage issues weíve got in the garage and Iíd really like to have disc rather than rim on my primary bike. I guess I could just get a CaledoniaÖ I wish they sold the non-5 as a frameset

Tequila used to do that to me.

Mojo31 12-18-21 08:24 AM

Pedals are pretty cheap as well (unless PM), so I’d just buy a second set. But, I get wanting the newer gear. Guilty of that myself from time to time. Make that all the time.

ive been noticing that used bikes are taking longer to sell around here. Bubble may be slowing down.

Mojo31 12-18-21 08:25 AM

I’m allergic to mushrooms, and they give me hives. My mom and son have the same allergy.

That's the spirit.

Most people would say 'Yes'. Who am I to argue with these people?

Yep. Less money for Velo Vol, more money for greedy doctors. :(

After a week of Spring weather, it's finally cold and snowy.

We'll probably only get a couple of inches.

Ive never been allergic to them before. Apparently sometimes a rash is also the only Covid symptom

Personally, if I were to replace my Crux and Allez with one bike, it would be the Litespeed Watia.

Wind is out of the East, so wrong direction for Lake Effect.

Fixed that for you. Doctors donít get the premiums.
