Ok the last couple of months have been horribly stressful with money situations and a bunch of other things to the point where its really affected my health.
I started off late february with blisters that appeared on my hand. After they started to take over my right palm I started to worry and went to the doc. Come to find out I had shingles (BLECH!) talk about disgusting! Ok so I rush the kid in for her chicken pox shot and start taking the meds to ditch the shingles. Then I break out in hives I suspected I had gotten it from eating crab but after about a week and goin to the doc I found out it was the meds. I had taken them 3 times a day for 2 weeks and was covered in hives. It was horrible! If you even touched me youd think I was sunburned the heat was unbearable! I took a bath and my 4 year old daughter came in speachless until i asked her what was wrong and she asked me in a scared voice,"Mommy, are you turning into a monster?" Poor thing she was scared for me and of me. Finally the shingles went away leaving hardly any skin left on my hand, but I was still stuck with the hives dang they itched!!! Then I caught the flu (Double Blech!!) When that went away I noticed more blisters on my hand and didnt know what to do so I took some of the meds I know Im allergic to cause if you dont catch it in the first 24 hours I found out you get nailed hard with them. they went away pretty fast but I now think i have nerve dammage in my hand. 2 days ago I found some more shingles I could cry!!! I also found out that I had a staph infection and Ive also had heartburn for about a week. Ive Oh and to top it all off I have a cold and my left ear either has fluid in it of its infected. Ill find out on tuesday.
My doc insists that I do something to reduce the stress in my life but refuses to give me something for it. Im already on prozak and I think my immune system could be shot for having a bad liver I havent had it checked in awhile.
Ive decided that each day Im gonna make a point to do something for ME and relax. which is why you all may be blessed a bit more with my presence then before. Im going to try and get more into this hobby also. Last year I lost alot of plants due to not making enough time for them.
Im curious what does everyone else do for relaxation? I mean I cant continually preen and prune my plants I need other outlets. Im a single mom so I dont have alot of money to take a vacation or anything fancy. Any suggestions (which are legal) would be helpful except 1, no suggestions about finding a man with all these skin problems that is NOT an option! unless of course he wants to scratch all the hard to reach places, mid back & between the shoulder blades would be nice.
