Update on me... :-)
I thought I would give you a quick update on me. :-) I am doing better. I am half-way through the meds. The rash is almost gone. I still have some of it lingering around, and it looks like some red spots will remain, but they are not the rash, just a "scarring". I was warned that would happen. I am still itching, stinging, and have pains and numbness. But, like the doc said, it could be a LONG time before that goes away.
So, I have resolved that as soon as the rash is gone, I am going back to my life. I can hurt being productive, just as much as at home. So, hopefully, in a little over a week I will be back at homeschool co-op and the gym. I'll take it easy, though. Promise. :-)
Thank you all for your prayers, well wishes. It really has helped. I actually think I was over the worst of it before I went to the doctor, but the medicine seems to be finishing it off.
I still can't really wear clothes, yet, which is a problem when you want to go out in public. I pretty much walk around in my gown all day. Having clothes touch my left side feels like needles sticking me, but I think I can get used to that sensation. I'll be working up to it before I actually venture outside fully clothed. Because, you know, the public saw me in a bathing suit this summer, I really don't think they want to see me naked. :-)
