I was reading a blog that I enjoy, With Heart in Hands, and she talked about Googling your name. I did this a while back and was kind of horrified to find that the main entries for my name were for a woman sex therapist in Scotland. I tend to put an inner voice to things like this and so, of course, amused myself with the Scottish-accented conversation that one could have with this woman regarding such matters. I know, such a child! My first reaction was that I was horrified and then I just laughed. Google is an amazing tool-amazing and a little scary. There were some other entries that appeared often and one was a football player-also an amusing thought-although if I don't return to Curves and a diet soon I may fit the Linebacker profile really well.
Yesterday, my whole darn day was blown with Dr. stuff. I have this very unusual thing that appears on my face from time to time in the form of watery blisters and swelling. It seems like a really bad sunburn and the blisters open and yuck I don't want to spoil your day with the rest. Anyway. I had a bout of it before the vacation and...ta dah....it's back! The only answer it to take a biopsy and so far, it keeps appearing in a part of my face that the Dermatologist doesn't want to cut for fear of scarring. She said she is sure its a benign thing with a long name and since there is medicine that gets rid of it really quickly-I just have to go with it for now. I can take Benadryl to stop the awful itching but then I'd be sleeping all day so I'm trying to be very patient(I can hear Roger laughing about that one right now). I've been a lucky woman in the illness department and so it has resulted in my complete lack of patience for anything that gets in my way of doing what I want. This stuff on my face looks like I have severe acne on top of a sunburn and I'm ashamed to say that I'm vain about my face. There is only one positive thing about this stuff-it results in a peel-just like a sunburn and the new skin is really nice. Sort of like having a chemical peel at the Dr. If there is an upside-that's it. In a week or two, instead of looking like this guy-
I'll go back to looking like this
See you round the bell tower
