IN OTHER NEWS, I bug-bombed the shit out of my apartment yesterday! Now it is ant-free and vaguely stinky. I did the whole "air it out" thing, but it still has a lingering smell. Maybe I should have left the windows open this morning, but I was too groggy to think of it.
The Supa-Dupa-Low-Sugar Diet Thing is going pretty well! I think it's working better this time since I know I can have eensy bits of sugar if I really am going mad. I'm trying to stay good at work during the day. So far "slip-ups" have included eating a thin slice of birthday cake (it was Corie's b-day on Tuesday), little nibbles of cookie here and there, and...um...a pez last night? Not bad considering it's a little over a week since I've started. And I didn't have a pint of Ben & Jerry's this weekend, I figured I'd go a week before I do that to myself. We'll see how I feel this weekend! If I feel like I don't need it, maybe I'll skip it again (BUT I AM PROMISING NOTHING).
The rash is doing pretty well! It's not nearly as red and scaly, and it itches less (but it still itches). You would not BELIEVE how nice bathing in plain yogurt is, either. I read that and I thought "I will try this but it will be completely ridiculous", and it totally calmed my skin down enough to get to sleep comfortably. The only problem is I can't do it every day, or my skin will freak out from too much bathing.
OKAY THAT'S ENOUGH ABOUT ECZEMA I THINK.
