Where Have I Been?

I think it is safe to say that I have been "abandoning" this blog for ... a month? :)

"So where have you been, Em?"

Well I'm here, kind of. I have been both busy and sick. True story.

It's not nice being sick, of course.

I have been sick for the past two weeks perhaps.
It's not like cold or cough or fever or such.
I ... had ... rashes ... all over my body ... I still shiver truly thinking about it.

It started out one fine night some two weeks ago.
It was a normal night, I was being confused about my life. Apparently that is what is normal to me.
When suddenly I felt a pinch of itch on my LEFT knee.

So I scratched. I thought "well hey, dry skin,... where is that lotion?"
So I smeared some lotion and prepared to go to bed, when,
"Ouch!" it itched again, this time worse than before.
So I smothered the lotion again and prepared to go to bed.

I made it through that night.
Only to find the following morning my RIGHT knee started to itch too.
So I lathered myself in even more lotion preparing for that day.
Yes, lotion doesn't lather, but I managed to do just that.

The following day however, it got worse.
IT WAS SO ITCHY! ... I couldn't do anything without scratching furiously like a cat.
Like some angry monster inside me was being angry at me! :(

My right wrist started to itch too.
And the following morning, the more I scratched, the worse it got!!!

It started to got onto my calves, and it developed hives, like I was stung by some thousand bees. :S

The FIRST doctor thought it was an allergic reaction, or something caused by some bacteria.
So he gave me some medicines and a tube of medicated lotion.
Which I smothered on gratiously.

A day passed.
Another day passed.

And my skin, the parts I scratched and gave the medicated lotion on, started to get redder ... and redder... I was genuinely mentally traumatised by the colour RED.
Not that I even like it at the first place.
It also had a burning sensation. :S

So the SECOND doctor came.

The red skin actually would turn to purple each time I tried to walk. :S 
She said she had never seen one so red (or purple) and advised me to go to a skin specialist.

So I ran to one as soon as the weekdays came, the THIRD doctor, and he said it was a virus.
He gave me medicated powder and some prescribed capsules and told me to use baby soaps only.

My mum wasn't so convinced and my neck started to itch too.

So we went to the FOURTH doctor.
He wasn't sure why too.
He recommended another doctor, another skin specialist.

The FIFTH doctor wasn't sure too,
She sent me to get my blood sampled, and she said it was an allergy.

She gave me an injection that day and gave me new prescribed medicines and liquid powder.
I should visit her again tomorrow.

Now I'm shedding like a snake.

More than enough for the bed bugs to feast on for the night.

And... of course while I was away this blog was 'viewed' purely by no more than some spam referral links :D
Oh, it tickles me thinking about it.

Hope you were having better days than mine!
