I’m pretty sure I’ve mentioned before that I have a skin condition called hydradenitis supratevia.  It’s uber pimple cyst things that sprout in fatty areas.  Normally I get them on the inside of my thighs, under my arms, and under my right boob.  The very most unpleasant are those that end up in my groin.  I’ve got a huge one right at the opening of my hoo-haw.  And it’s huge.  It hurts to walk, it hurts to sit, it hurts to wipe, it hurts to bathe.  Everything fucking hurts.

I’ve got to teach a class this morning.  I’ve already told my boss that I may well head to the ER after this, depending on how things go.  I’m not entirely sure what they’ll be able to do about it though.  Treatment for these things sometimes involves lancing but generally just involves a course of mega antibiotics.  Only I’m allergic to most of the pills they normally use to treat these.  And I don’t really want to have to pay for an ER visit.  I think I’m going to try to see if I can’t get a regular office visit.  If I can get through on the phone.

The weekend wasn’t too bad aside from this.  Josh and I got along the whole time, we did a few things together, and we got all of the bills paid.  We have a plan for taking care of the tax situation.  Things in that department are mostly looking up.

I’m hoping that this ends up being a quiet week with very little drama.  I’m still not quite sleeping great so I don’t feel like I have a ton of extra energy.  I got everything done this weekend that needed to be accomplished and took plenty of downtime, which I’m sure helped.  I still haven’t felt like I’ve really had time or energy to do anything for myself lately, and I know I really need to get back to that.  I haven’t walked in awhile now and I’m pretty sure that would help with the sleep again.

I managed to get myself an appointment this afternoon.  This shit is ridiculous.
