Five-legged frogs

I have decided, after being informed by a friend (you know who you are, Pop Killah! Shout out, yo!), that I cannot, in fact, be made sick by the fires (which is completely wrong wrong wrong), that I am some sort of Indicator Species. Slight change in the toxicity off the air? She gets a rash. Water too hard, too chlorinated? Splotchy blotches. Someone in the environment angry, disgruntled, or generally making her nervous? Hives. Smoke in the air? Headache, swollen glands and a sore throat. And. A. Rash.

I've always been this way. My skin isn't really skin, it's like some sort of agar in a petri dish. Ooh, that is sexy.

I firmly believe that my hives are due to changes in air composition. I usually only get them when I spend more than one night away from home. My doctor thinks I'm nuts. But I'll believe my body over him any day of the week.

My sinuses go ape after frontal systems go through. I thought it was related to barometric pressure, but I've ridden out category 3 hurricanes without a twinge of pain.

Now I think that significant changes in humidity affect my sinuses, either drying them out or wetting them down to a point where they stop functioning like they're supposed to and assume the role of Tormentor in Chief.
