Treat You Right

I have some unfortunate news.

In addition to my winter psoriasis outbreak, I now have a full-body dotty-type rash.  Red dots and bumps.  It itches, and it's ugly.  And it kind of hurts, now that I'm thinking about it.

I'm using some self-help type thinking to get through this difficult time.  "This is tough," I remind myself, "but I'll get through it."  I rationally think through my options and decide on a course of action.  I'm pleasant to the on-call nurse in the dermatology clinic who helpfully assigns me to a recent cancellation time slot.  "Thank you SO much," I say.  "Of course I can be there at 3:30."

Only one time did I photograph the rash and send the picture to a friend.  I limited my Google images rash photo examination time to one-and-a-half or two hours.  I only check to see if the rash has spread every fifteen minutes.

Things are obviously totally under control.

Oh, I'm so sorry. At least you have an appointment. Maybe they have some wonder drug/ointment/something to help.

I like the idea of resilience and bounce, but I don't like the idea of grit.
