My eyes, my eyes!!!! *blood curdling scream*

Part III will have to wait because guess what? I have impetigo!* In my EYES!

It started last Saturday as an itchy bump on the bottom of my chin. Monday morning I had developed what i thought was a cold sore on the corner of my mouth. As luck would have it, I had to see the doctor that day anyway to get my gym pass signed off. (If Pirate brings it back today I can go use the gym on the base for free any time I want, including all the classes and stuff. cool!)

Long story short, it's now on my chin, the corner of my mouth, my left ear, and both eyelids, which are swollen, blistering, oozing yellow puss, and itching like the blazes. You have NO IKEA how miserable this is.

Good thing Pirate and I are having company for dinner tonight -- some of his work colleagues. I look awesome!

(And yes, I asked the doctor when I went back this morning if it was safe for me to prepare food for people, and he said it was. Now I'm using an antibiotic cream and taking oral antibiotics. That should kill the little feckers.)

*Do a Google image search. I dare you.

It's probably an STD.

Oh Dear.
Remind him that the contract states 'for better or worse'.

This too shall pass.

It sounds like you had the makings of an unforgettable day...enjoy the honeymoon period because reality will set in before you know it...and then the Act Of Marriage begins..every morning for the rest of your life.

Have fun.

For some reason, your situation sounds like a sitcom plot. Just think of the hilarious consequences and all will be well.

PS. I googled. Ew.

I hope you feel better soon! I'll send good thoughts :)

Have you been picking your scabs again? Tsk tsk.

jd: done. Pirate just got it, too.

Dave: you cynical old beast! I hope you're not implying that I've been swashbucking with a sea-farer who is not my husband!

Donn: and "sickness and in health," which is even more to the point. On the up-side, at least this gives me an excuse to get out of going to the Aston-Martin Owners Club meeting on Sunday. The Socialist in me just can't bring myself to like the idea.

Billy: and indeed, like most sitcoms these days, the situation is entirely lacking in humor.

Ez: thanks. The doc said yesterday that if I don't see improvement by tomorrow I should come back. I have to say i'm not optimistic. I'm much worse today than I was yesterday. My left eye is swollen completely shut and I look like the Elephant Man.

TB: you named yourself after a disease. You don't get to point fingers.

I had impetigo for months when I was a little kid. Odd how no-one would be my friend then. A heartfelt 'ow' is being said on your behalf here.

MONTHS???!?!?!
