I had just bought a sports car and I was forced off the road by an oncoming car. My car flipped once and landed upside down on the road. Police rushed me to the hospital with cuts, scrapes and a bump on the head. The hospital wanted to keep me for a few hours in case I had a concussion.
Just as they decided to release me, I began having trouble breathing and my eyelids began to swell. My throat swelled shut – as well as my eyes. I spent the next 7 days in the hospital covered from head to toes in poison ivy and a machine breathing for me.
How did I get the poison ivy? When they cut my car apart to get me out they laid me along the side of the road. Bam, I got it good. So did the two paramedics that worked on me.
