Tuesday Text

February really is a cruel month.
My face is doing its best to pack up and leave me.
So I went to the doctor yesterday.
And while I waited to get in,
I whined wept carried on pathetically
tried to elicit sympathy from my spouse...
Isn't he a chatty Cathy?
See?
I don't even know this person.
Gah.

GAH! You poor thing. Ellen shared an article with me about putting white vinegar on eczema. I am trying it on areas that are not obvious first. I will keep you posted and hope things get better for you soon!

TSannie said...

Any better this morning? Still have the red welts of last evening? Dinner was fun!

Ann Marie said...

Ohhhh my poor Lauren!!!! Hugs and Smooches!!! and yes I would still smooch you puffiness and all!

Daryl said...

Oh LaLa that looks soooooo uncomfortable. Are strong doses of wine helping? Are you allergic to road trips or possibly the destination?

Hilary said...

Oh ouch that looks painful. Poor you. :(

Caution Flag said...

I suppose the prednisone will come with its own side effects, too, to add insult to injury.

You look miserable! Do you feel as miserable as the rash looks?

LL Cool Joe said...

Get well soon!

Oh my, that looks so uncomfortable! My advice is to increase the wine intake and cover the mirrors! Poor you. I hope this gets resolved quickly.

Joanie said...

Hope you feel better. You truly don't look as bad as you must feel! Hang in there!

Keetha said...

Oh, dear! I'm so sorry! I hope you're all better soon.

Drink wine? Would that help?

Deb in Spain said...

Chica! WOW! I've never seen you looking like that! I hope it clears up quickly! xx

Emom said...

Oooo I am so sorry...I hope the Dr. had an answer...I am a pitiful patient too....

Deb said...

Oh, you poor baby girl! Will aloe help at all or just set you off even more?
follow your course of treatment...it will get better.
It hurts just to look at your photo. Ouch!

Karen Deborah said...

Oh Honny you are really pitiful. I hope they gave you a shot of steroids. I wouldn't put anything on that tender skin. WOW did you react or what? If it makes you feel better I have seen people whose whole body looked that bad, yeah they were in the hospital.

My prescription is to lay on the couch and watch chick flicks or any flicks, to bad you aren't closer, we could comiserate (take drugs) together.

Tammy said...

Oh my!! It looks so painful. I hope the drugs help soon!

Sassy said...

Well SHOOT!!!!!! You make me so sad! I am so sorry........and I am married to a man who comments back to me like that......unless I am in the middle of something and can't text...he decides to write novels.....go figure.......please feel better.............just a suggestion.....on my way to Tucson on Sunday...we passed an ostrich farm......maybe come to Arizona and stick your head in the sand and you'll feel all better......just sayin'.....♥ ya

Treasia Stepp said...

Aww you poor baby! That does look painful. Have they figured out what it is your allergic to? I would so stay away from it in the future. Like you haven't figured that out yourself.

Starwoodgal said...

Chesapeake Bay Woman said...

Oh, this is not good, we cannot have the Mama in pain. I don't even think PRUNES! will help this shituation.

Grandma J said...

Hoping that the prednisone does the trick. I still think you are a natural beauty.

Decadent Housewife said...

Oh my.
Have you tried banana peels? Supposed to work for poison ivy.

Flea said...

You look so sad. Get better already! :) {{{HUGS}}}

Fragrant Liar said...

Yikes, are you okay now? I've heard other women talking about using these creams and having bad reactions. Hope you're on the mend.

P.S. Doesn't look as bad as you think.
