For Don’t Hide It Flaunt It, I am writing about my disease. My disease is mastosytosis. This causes me a lot of pain. Sometimes I wake up in the night and it feels like I have a metal bar on my foot. When that happens, I take a pill and put on lotion.
Every day I need pills/eye drops. It is very painful when the meds wear off and I am sore. When this happens, I take a Benadryl and put on lotion. The reason I react is because I have different cells in my body. When I am in pain, the cells go to the part of the nody that is in pain. Sometimes, the cells go to my brain and I get crazy.
Due to the cells, I am not allowed to do some physical activities. The masto cells will go to my brain and I misbehave or it will go to some part of my body and it bangs on my skin. That is when it means I am in pain.
Another time my cells go to my brain is when I eat something I am allergic to. Like asthma, I have many triggers. In fact, I have a problem with writing. I know what to write faster than I can write it. That is when I need help. When I have a reaction I also need help.
When the hives go to my brain I get hyper and when it goes to my body I get spots.
