Something I Far More Afraid of Than Any 'Ole Bear

I also spotted this while I was mowing today:
Evil poison ivy. I can't even look at it without breaking out; I have a seriously allergic reaction to this stuff. So now that I'm done in the yard, it is off to the shower with the Burt's Bees Poison Ivy Soap for me. It seemed to help last year, so keep your fingers crossed. I don't know what I'll do if I have a reaction. Because of this silly heart flutter thing, the doctor had banned me from all medication, tea, and chocolate. This has so far been inconvenient. I've even managed through the allergies, but, poison ivy? Different story. That usually includes a shot of prednisone, and much benadryll, but that's certainly out of the question right now.
