Well, not for me, but we will get to that in un momento. HUSBAND has a rager all over his chest! It’s HIDEOUS! HIDEOUS I tell you!
It started out as a small dry scratchy patch, and within a few days had grown to a big steaming bubbly mass of red ugliness about four inches across, with little dots radiating up to his collarbone and out to his shoulders. And that’s just the appearance!
The burn! The itch! He now puts oregano oil on it which kills the itch, and makes him smell like a fresh pan of lasagna, but that stuff BURNS! Owwwch! He also finally got the Valtrex scrip refilled and has been taking two per day for about a week, and it is just now starting to die down and dry up. He is now left with a giant patch of scaly skin.
Poor guy- it just isn’t his month.
I, on the other hand, changed my diet, you know- no grain, no sugar, no additives (for the most part) and have been breakout free for two whole months! This cannot have come at a better time, as my monthly visits were coming with uninvited guests such as bleeding sores that left scar tissue in very undesirable places.
So, the moral of the story is a) KEEP YOUR PANTS ON!! b) KEEP YOUR HANDS TO YOURSELF!! and c) STAY AWAY FROM THE WHITE DEATH AND HER SISTER, WHITE FLOUR AND ANYTHING “ENRICHED” OR THAT MAKES A HEALTH CLAIM!!
Oh, and the marriage is fabulous. Finally listened to my wizened old companion and started taking care of me, before taking care of us. Me is way better, and Us is way better as a result. Amazing things when one focuses on “intention” and the ultimate goal.
