I think it was back in April when I first time got some weird rash under my armpits. It went away, it came back, it went away, and... a week or two ago it spread to the bend of arms, then to the arms, then to hollows of the knees and on my chest. It's sweat rash, I'm sure, and I've had some trouble with it before. On sultry days I always have to have shorts under the dress, or otherwise I get it on my tights... Kind of annoying.
Anyway, it had never got this bad before (or this itchy!), and so yesterday I went to the health center where the nurse took a look at it and gave me time to doctor. The time was for 1 pm yesterday. My work started at three, but I thought there was plenty of time... at 1:45 I went to ask just when
the doctor was going to see me, and it turned out she had some acute case right then, and it could take some 20 minutes still. I told them I don't have that much time, and so I got a new time for this morning, and... during the night the rash almost disappeared. ^^; Well, there's definitely something left still, but compared to what it was like....
And the doctor was kind of useless, anyway. She agreed with me that it was sweat rash, but somehow it felt that I new more of it than she after all research I'd done on internet. xD And she gave me something for the itch, but it's not itching anymore. Oh well, at least I have something now if it turns bad again.***
I've been going to recommend this cat comic for ages, but always forget: Lackadaisy
. The style's something awesome... It's made by the same artist as some of my favorite art at DA (like that one pic she uses at her home page
) too. Too bad, btw, that the story that goes with that painting isn't so great. Or... well, I don't know if it's great or not, because I've huge problems getting past the first paragraph. ^^; Would that count as purple prose, I wonder...
(First page of the comic
, as there seems to be some trouble in the archive. At least for me.)***
A couple of random things from the con before I forget them again:
On Sunday I bought a drink at one place, and the woman there asked for my ID. xD I found out that I'm getting old enough to be flattered instead of being mortified - "shit, do I really look like a kid?" Actually, I think I'm somewhere in-between of those two reactions. Mostly amused... ^^
I was a bit disappointed I didn't get a picture of one totally awesome cosplayer at the con, but then I noticed he's on one of my random photos. It's not too good, but anyway, at least he's partially visible. He had a Santa Claus beard, white face, fun lights on his head and hand (it lighted on his knuckles when he closed his hand), black costume, and he was big
. It was quite an impressive sight. ^^( The picCollapse )
At the Saturday's party there were songs performed for the quests of honor. They were, in general, really good, and quite fun. I managed to find the lyrics for one that's responsible for the fact that "500 Miles away from home" is still
stuck in my mind. ( Read more...Collapse )***
I went to swim today after the doctor visit, at the outdoor swimming pool near my home. Good thing I was there early - the line in front of it was just crazy when I left. It's a beautiful day, of course, but... would all those people even fit into the pool at the same time? O.o
