Long day...

Which started with a visit to the dermatologist to clear up the rosacea which is affecting my eyes. So I have tetracycline for 4 months and a tube of cream I will have to use for the rest of my life. After 4 months I go back and we decide to either progress with treatments on and off (again for the rest of my life) of antibiotics or another treatment which I will do every year or every other year but costs $350.

Had my moles checked. The one on my neck looked fine, the one on my back they cut off. No stitches though. The spot is sore, probably from where I got the injection to numb the area.

I'm tired. I'm emotional. I'm debating fast food for dinner but trying to be good. Lil man wants Mac N Cheese which sounds good. Comfort food.

I'm ready to curl up in bed, have a good cry and snuggle with my stuffed (and real) kitties. I'm still on mom duty for another hour though.

Ick. I hate visiting the dermatologist. There is ALWAYS something that needs to go...

But, in this state, with all the sun we are exposed to, it's better to err on the side of caution...

And remember, V, you cannot go in the sun while taking that particular antibiotic...

Hope you are feeling better today. Tetracycline can be nasty if the sun gets you. I get my turn at the dermatologist in a couple of weeks. There are a couple of suspicious moles...

Ditto, Buc. Better a litle discomfort than the consequences down here. Just one of those little things they don't print in the Chamber of Commerce brochures, like lightning, floods, tornadoes, hurricanes, red tide...LOL.

I am still hoping to attend the Hard Rock thingy friday evening. My friend G. is still having major problems and I may end up at their house for the evening. Check my blog if you want the story.

I have roscea also. I use a prescription called Metrogel 1% and it is the most effect thing I have found yet.
