Health Activist Writer’s Month Challenge Day #28

The First Time I… Write a post about the first time you did something. What is it? What was it like? What
did you learn from it?

The first time I used Icy Hot I thought I'd die.  Because my nerve endings are already so overstimulated with fibromyalgia, the ingredients in Icy Hot caused incredible pain.  Not only did it create pain, but it made the pain I already had there, much, much, worse.  I did it in the middle of the night, while DH was sleeping.  It was so hard not to scream.  I tried wiping it off but that made it hurt even more.  It also gave me the worst chills.  I was so hot, sweating bucket loads, when I'd get so cold my teeth would chatter.  Needless to say, I learned to never use Icy Hot again.
