It annoys me that my arms look like I'm a junkie. Blood taken 4 times in 4 weeks. Rolled & blew a vein 1.5 weeks ago. 3 sticks this morning, #1 vein rolled, #2 vein blew (the vein in the middle of the underside of the forearm, hurts like a mofo, gonna bruise badly, swollen), then finally stick #3 was a success in the same vein we used Tuesday. I sure hope I don't have any more for a few weeks, but I have another doctor's appointment Wed morning, so who knows.

It is annoying that I have to drive 4 hours round trip to see a doctor since the one in town refused to treat me. I also have to have the same damn minor surgery with imaging I had a month ago that supposedly showed nothing, but the scan with dye DID show the tumor we were looking for, so I have to have the first one AGAIN. This now looks like it WILL lead to outpatient surgery to remove that one small benign tumor. I want it done ASAP, we're already delaying my treatment by a month so I can have the MRI in April. Ugh! Why didn't the doctor see that one tumor the first time???

Yet another snow storm. I'm over winter already.

That I have to get in writing from my cardiac specialist that I CAN do the thing I was always told I could never do, in detail, so I can give to every other doctor I come across along this journey. I've had so many people tell me no that it's ridiculous, they don't understand the complexities of the different surgeries. My cardiac specialist says my repair looks "excellent", which is amazing since it was done during the early years of this new type of repair (insurance considered it experimental & we had to fight them to pay for it). I got yet another doctor referral for care after we finally get to my goal, so I will need at least 2 more doctors to see quite often throughout the process. Oh, and I just got needles for my new meds. I'm really going to start feeling like a junkie. Good thing I got over my fear of needles by age 9, I had no choice. I may not like them, but I can do it.

Certain coworker, who made a big fuss about becoming a trainer for this thing where we are supposed to help our coworkers & be nicer to patients and all that stuff, then is a huge b!tch the day we are inspected. She refused to talk to any inspector or help her coworkers in any way today. In fact, she was NOT going to get her own work done, so after I was done in the OR (8a-1p), I actually DID her work, minus the paperwork. Then she huffed & puffed over the paperwork until she went home. I know we ALL had to stay late yesterday and come in early this morning for this inspection, but YOU are a selfish b!tch. So much for "teamwork" and all the other BS she talks about.

I am still itchy from the sunburn & heat rash. It will be gone soon enough, I just keep putting lotion on & try to not scratch it.

The most annoying thing: having your favorite camera mess up, then realizing once you get home that half the photos on your 32GB memory card are missing. I know they are still on there, just have to figure out how to recover them.

If it is bad be careful what soap you are using. Can you get a soap with olive oil in it? Or Chamomile soap?

Would you consider using witch hazel or natural yoghurt or has your doctor prescribed something else for you?

Can't help with the tekkie stuff sorry.

Be well soon Smitty8

I finally recovered the photos from the memory card, but the camera is definitely messed up. All the photos from right after I noticed it not working right are completely washed out. Not sure if I accidently hit a button or it's something broken in the camera. That was my fave camera, too. Good thing I got a few others, but they don't work as well.

I haven't seen a doctor for this. I think it's still an allergic reaction to a certain ingredient in some sunscreens. I've been dealing with this for a few years now. I thought this particular sunscreen didn't have that ingredient in it. The stuff I use on my face & neck are different & didn't cause the same reaction, so I will compare ingredients again and try to narrow it down. Might have to go back to the allergist just for this problem. I forgot to mention it when I saw him in December.

Understand how camera people are.......selfies and just keep snapping one of them will turn out!

Try and get tested for as many allergies as possible! As for sunscreen ingredients.......don't get me started! There are very good ones on the market......but very expensive! How come the allergist didn't go through everything with you in December.

Actually, the allergist was more concerned about my food & seasonal allergies and ran out of room on my arms with all I was tested with. I had blood allergy testing years ago and they found nothing then, either. My immune problems (mostly foods) are not what you call typical allergies (IgE reaction), mine are IgG and IgA reactions, which makes your body attack itself. When I go back, I'll ask about the sunscreen, but I had already narrowed the ingredient down and tried to avoid it. Obviously, it must be in that particular Neutrogena sunscreen but not in the other one. I must've grabbed the wrong one at the store. I'm already not as itchy as I had been, but it still looks like I have a bit of a heat rash on my chest, which didn't get any sun or sunscreen, so maybe I have a combo of heat rash and this allergic reaction going on.

Ok that makes more sense now. Sorry to hear that smitty.

Personally I choose my foods so carefully and don't have allergies. But food these days freaks me out.

My diet is so boring, and spartan (hence part of my name) that when out with friends I get tipsy on two sips of wine.

Keep us posted about the doctor.
