Yes my friends I am back again!!!
I was stung by a bee about a week ago and I am allergic to them but my reaction was slightly different this time, let me explain:
Usually when I get stung I have an anaphylaxitic reaction so I usually grab for my Epi-Pen and call 911 right away. This time, thank God I was with a friend, my friend tried to get me to let her call 911 and I was real stubborn and said not to and I had refused to take my Epi-Pen. She talked me in to going with her to an appointment with her and to talk to the nurses at the place she was going to and I guess I did just in time. One of the nurses came out and got me seated, my friend made sure the nurse knew I had an Epi-Pen in my purse and he gave it to me and I took it and then all of a sudden I passed out for awhile an ambulance was called and the EMT's gave me more Epinepherine in the ambulance and put me on oxygen wide open. Now I don't remember what happened from a very brief period before the bee sting up until arriving at the hospital. The thing that concerns me is that I was so stubborn and arguementative about getting medical help I am not usually like that I usually get help right away and automatically use my Epi-Pen I could of died if my friend wasn't with me!!! Has anyone ever had an allergic reaction change your personality during the crisis like this? I lost some memory and my regular personality is back now but it changed at the time I got stung. I am now real scared to be out alone while we are in bee season here what if a stranger finds me next time and I am argumentative again and don't tell them about the sting they won't know what to do if they were not with me. Please if anyone has any suggestions or advice of any kind please let me know I am real nervous about this situation I could of died if my friend didn't get me to help when she did. Thank you in advance for any help or advice you may be able to offer. I have missed you all much love and respect, marjorie zych

Good question but I don't know if this is the forum for it. Yes, Allergies do change over time, they usually get worse and this may be your response. Combatiness my be a response to a lack of oxygen that you were getting. I strongly suggest getting ahold of your allergist and having a conversation about it. You probably should be wearing a medic alert braclet so in the event you refuse the Epipen, and then pass out, the braclet would alert anyone that found you the look for the pen and administer it or at least call 911. Good Luck and be safe!!!
Hi miss marjorie this is michelle good to hear you are well and i would like to say this you are correct it is inteed a very scary situation. My aunt has an insulin pump now cause at one point she was like this when her sugar dropped below 40 it was 36 to be exact. My uncle had to call the ER cause she refused to manually take a shot of insulin she indeeded up fighting all of bastrop ER response team she was so out of it. When they finally got the insulin in her she could not believe what happened. So miss marjorie try to remember this could happen to anyone and you may need an alert button if this happens again hopefully you will press the button and not be stubborn i know you dont have control over it but its important you do! Take care marjorie i wish you well friend.
