Wednesday (14th) I had my dermatologist appointment for this mad itch I've had since September 2nd.
Remember I've had 2 rounds of prednizone from my family doc. The Derm said that with my history of allergies and my dry skin that STRESS has caused this "atopic dermatitis" - excess inflamation in the skin. It is common with people who have a family history of allergies or asthma.
Stress huh? Who ME??? ROFL
3) cindilouwho's wedding
4) stepDad's health
So I've been given a super duper strong topical steriod cream to apply 2x a day along with Allegra to take in the A.M. as well as benedryl if needed. This is all in addition to the Zyrtec (allergy med) that I take at night.
Stay away from perfumes and use fragrance free lotion and NO hot showers for now.
Doc says "let's slam dunk this problem and get histamine blockers in your body like gang busters".
I am THANKFUL that I kept the dermatologist appointment and that this is NOT something severe.
Now with that out of the way we are finally getting some much needed RAIN today. Only it's in drizzles. It would be nice if it would pour tonight and be clear Friday and Saturday for Miss T's birthday sha-bang (her big day is next Tues 20th).
But today I am THANKFUL for this RAIN. Our water tables are low even out in the country where I am. The city where I work and it's surrounding 'burbs are on water restrictions. Well water use is ok, but still they warn against over use.
Coworker and I have finished the office Christmas cards, stuffed and stamped. We'll just wait till next Tues/Wed to drop them in the mailbox. We've also been going through her "job" as it seems bossman is still not going to hire a replacement just yet.
He asked me yesterday if I thought I'd be "OK" and I said yes, until it gets busy, then that's another story. He hasn't mentioned yet a pay increase.
If I'm taking on a "second" job don't you think my salary should "double"?? (not holding my breath) Coworker said she told him he had better pay me good after she leaves. Hey, I'd settle for her salary ($1,100/wk) ROFL.
Wonder what hours he'd be expecting me to put in now??? As it is, I'm on short time due to the permit restrictions and the slow down of building.
He'd better not tell me he can't afford it.........he'd find himself missing 2 employees!!!
