I WILL SURVIVE!!!!!!!
It has been a long time since I have been this sick. Last Thursday night I started running a high fever. It stayed at 103 for three days. I finally gave up and went to the Urgent Care Unit on sunday afternoon. It was so busy....I was there four hours. The first thing the Doctor asked if I had ever had the Shingles. I haven't. My fore head was one solid whelp, and bright red. My eyes were swollen shut and my hair was a mess. I made a picture of myself, but it scared me when I saw it, so I deleted it instantly. They finally said I had Cellulitus. I don't know if that's the way you speel it or not. It is a skin infection.....not from being dirty, but just something that happens. For years, I have had a bad case of dandruff. I have tried every shampoo on the market...none works. And I have a tendency to scratch in my head. That is where the infection came from. I shampoo my hair every other day and still it was itchy. The Dr. wrote me a prescription for some shampoo that I think is going to work....along with something else I tried. Some one told me they had seen in Dr. Gott about someone who couldn't get rid of their dandruff and had tried rubbing KOOL WHIP into their hair.....every other day for about a week. Well, I did that. My hair feels so much better, I could almost eat it! LOL My dandruff is gone.... my whelps are gone and my fever is gone. I am almost back to normal.... enough to know that I WILL SURVIVE!!!!
