Deja Funk

I was home sick the last two days. Well really home tired and itchy. I was suffering from a rash that was suspiciously like the one I had last year at this time when I was pregnant.
It took me forever to get into the doctor's on Mon., apparently everyone has bronchitis right now. So I got in with a dermatologist. If I had seen a family practice doc I know I could have talked them into giving me a nice round of oral steriods. But seeing the Derm I knew I wasn't getting anything stronger than a topical. Which I must admit actually worked this time.
I stayed out of work until I could sleep without scratching all night and could wear both a shirt and a bra. For the hundredth time in my life I wish I could go without (the bra part).
