My Mood: o.k. to take lots more gabapentin?
Default Rash is getting a little better

I know I need to go to a dermatologist but I cannot fit in dealing
with an MD. I am too depressed to do anything more than get to the
car to go to work. Hubby helps me get out the front door.


The bumps have diminished although they hurt a little when I
re-apply the cortizone.
The rash is slightly better than it was Monday morning before work.

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

There's a chance that I had a reaction to the electric blanket.
I had not been TOUCHING the that blanket with my hands (or any parts
of my body directly until two or three nights ago.)

Since the bumps aren't a medical emergency, you can always wait to see if they go away on their own/with Cortizone treatment before you make an appointment, or make an appointment for a ways out and cancel it if they go away

Thanks, Kay.
I made two appts with new dermatologists.


The first one I made is Feb 22-- too long to wait

So I called another office and got an appointment for Feb 12.
It's the same day as a meeting at work but I can do both because the times
work I think.



I have an old dermatologist but I cancelled too many times and I don't think
they would be nice to me if I called asking for an appt.

Default Appt with new dermatologist Tuesday

Thank you, Kay,


Tuesday I have a b.s. meeting.

Then I drive back to my neighborhood for the Dermatologist appt.

It's almost too much for ONE day. DID I TELL YOU I AM EXHAUSTED?

+++++

My bumpy hands seem to be completely cleared up, BUT
my face (cheeks and nose and everywhere else)
are red and raw from the CPA
P.

I'm been wondering if the redness is caused by the pressure of the mask
or more likely bacteria or fungus, but hubby does a good job of cleaning
the pieces when I ask him.


I also have a mole near my chin that is bothering me because it looks stupid.

Sometimes I get bumps, redness, etc on my thumbs or near my wrists because I either haven't been rinsing the soap off those parts well enough or have not washing them well enough... IDK.

I'm glad that you will be able to get the raw skin on your face from the CPAP checked out. I hope you can get some kind of cream to treat it, and maybe something to prevent it from happening in the future. I know I wouldn't be happy about it

I hope that something can be done about your mole, too

It sounds like you will have a long day, Mari. I hope that the trip to the dermatologist IS worth it, and you get some good sleep tonight (((HUGS)))

Thanks, Kay,



I am trying to talk myself into going to the appt at 2:15. I do
not feel like taking a shower and going to that building . .
. . .having to talk to anyone . . .. deal with the electronic messages
I am getting from his office,. . . . .
(For example --"Sign into the portal" -- NO. . . . too freaking
hard.)

I would rather sleep.

I went to the wrong address and kept walking around the huge
medical complex before I figured I was in the wrong place.

Then I fought the traffic to get out of there and
came home.

I'm so sorry you went to the wrong building and walked around till
you figured it out. I was hoping you got the appointment finished
and taken care of.
