    Exclamation Eating poison ivy

    Has anyone ever tried the technique of gradually consuming larger poison ivy leaves to "innoculate" themselves against a skin reaction to it?

    Or do you know anyone who has and lived to tell about it?

    I have never gotten poison ivy- even if I pulled it out of the yard with my bare hands! I'm pretty sure that it wouldn't KILL you though- our sheep used to eat it sometimes and didn't die!

    Be careful about that, because sensitivity to it can be cumulative. I used to be like that, but several years ago, I accidentally crawled around in a patch of it. It was covering my forearms, and I had to take steroids to prevent it from driving me insane.

    I try to stay away from it and then I go to the doctor and get a shot because I've got it all over my face and my eye is swelling shut.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”
    ~ John Rogers

    I've always been immune to the stuff.

    One of my professors used to boil it several times and make a tea out of it.
