Famous last words...I don't get poison ivy breakouts.

Several years ago, we were cleaning up the backyard of our home.    Lot's of weeds, so we had a company come and spray the weeds and such.   After they were all brown and dead I went outside to start clean up.  I was in shorts and a tank top, I remember my neighbour saying for me to be careful with all the poison ivy .  Not a problem I said.

Well, the next morning I started itching and from there it became a full on poison attack on my body.   It was so bad, CNN ran a story on me.   I wasn't even allowed to work, not because I was so itchy, but because I looked so bad it was grossing out my co workers.

My reminder to you.......Leaves of three, turn and flee!
