The highlight of today? Discovering that thankfully I do NOT have shinlges as one of my coworkers (who really is nice, just a little odd), was convinced. I guess she's had them twice and is a little freaky about it.

Instead it turns out I have a severe case of folliculitus,

Folliculitus is a condition where usually more than one hair follicle within a limited area on the skin becomes infected with bacteria, resulting in small, inflamed, and itchy bumps to form.
all over my left shoulder on to my back and the tops of my breasts. This morning it was itching like crazy, of course if you happen to be that odd ball who like hot wool sweater that are at least one size too small, it was a good time. I hopped inthe shower, the water stung and I discovered my left side had gone polka dot.

Hoping it would go away I did what all good ostriches do and ignored it, as best as one can ignore a massive itch. It was worse at work, so I finally started asking around and got scared enough to use a longer lunch hour and go to the walk in.

When the doctor goes "ewww", I really don't take it as a good sign. Isn't there something in the Hippocratic oat about oath about that? Of course when she started asking about MRSA (relax folks, apparently there are minor forms that are not life threatening, as least not when treated right away). But I am on three more meds for a week (I need a spreadsheet to keep track of them all when you add in my mental health meds, that makes 7 or is it 8, I've lost count. I won't even start with the supplements. So I've now got an antihistamine (I can't remember), prednisone (only a week thank God, that one is a monster) and some Cephalahexin just for kicks). One is once a day, one is 4 times a day, and one is 3 times a day. I also have two meds I take at night, one in the am, and one as needed. I'm a regular walking Rx.

The low point of the day? Discovering I've dug myself in a hole so deep, I may need to learn Chinese, financially speaking that is. Things are not so hot here in the Chateau de Cranky. We aren't starving (or even close), or living on the streets (yet), but it sure feels like shit, to know you are 40 and still have practically nothing to show for 25+ years of working your butt off.

On the brightside again, three miles on the treadmill, didn't exactly fix anything, but it sure felt good. Who knew there really was such a thing as runner's high, even if I am more cheetah than antelope.

In every neighborhood there is at least one house that all the neighbors gossip about. This is a diary from the woman who lives in that house. I am a single mother in her mid thirties. I live in North Dakota with my son, Warren.

I tend to be a bit of a slob, and am the opposite of a girly-girl. I am geek girl, who loves Star Wars, Star Trek, Harry Potter, Buffy, Angel, action movies, science fiction, action adventure, Dr. Who, and so on and so on.

I love to write and while I don't post much fiction online anymore I would love to be a writer someday. I am also overweight, bipolar and suffer from allergy induced asthma.
