So, I may be a Doctor after all
I love these old pictures, This is my Uncle Sam & Aunt Janie Fulbright!
I feel old. I don’t know exactly what that means but I have had a tough rash for over a week now, it resides mainly on my forearms. It started off as little bumps under the skin, hundreds of them. They started festering (is that a good word?). I mean they came to small heads (like a boil), but most were very small. No! I did not consult a doctor, I am not at the point of trusting them yet. LOL
So I did the doctor. I thought of the term ‘sun-poison’ I am not sure if that is even a diagnosis. I went on-line, self-diagnosis. Seemed like psoriasis to me. Could be eczema (dermatitis).
So I bought two tubes of ‘salve’. One for psoriasis the other for “skin rashes’ the producer promised a miracle). We already had calamine lotion. I first tried Calamine for a couple days. Then switched to the salves. Not sure which (if either did it), it seems to be going way, and Sherry will kiss me more! LOL
I am a believer that most of our bodies will fight and win when attacked. But I still want to help it. LOL
Shucks, I am happy any time she kisses me more. Now to be honest with you guys, I thought when I was very young, i.e. 40-60, old people (70-80 range) would not need a kiss (or even need more intimacy). Boy was I WRONG. That girl’s kisses mean more to me than when I was 16!
So now that my uninvited rash is disappearing, my expectations are rising! ;-) .
Enough of this senior silliness, grandson Ben and daughter Elsie Mae fly out on Sunday morn. This has been a great visit and brought the family together for some great fellowship. Very needed after Aunt Shirley’s death. It was sweet hearing thoughts of Shirley. She did love her step kids, but being so close, she had adopted my family, since she never had children of her own.
Thanks for taking the time to read this scattered group of thoughts,..
