Picking up where I left off...making you feel better about the ridiculousity of your own life [Jun. 30th, 2010|07:46 am]

See, I've been so bad at posting, that I've damn near lost the flow of it! I start out with the precept that my body is being an Asshole and then I get home and look in the mirror and thing "Gah! You missed the best BITS." Carp.

I'm not going back to edit; I'm all about the rough drafts here. But, really, it's so frustrating to get home, look in the mirror and think, man, did I really skip the pimples? Because there in the mirror...the whitehead on my forehead, the one on my chin, the one on the side of the neck and the two on my chest. Oh, yeah, and the one on the TIP of my nose. It looks like the Zit Fairy was possessed by the spirit of the Road Line Painters and thought I looked like an undecorated piece of asphalt.

Oh, and the ear infection? No doubt made worse because I have a pimple in my ear canal. The doctor is peering down my ear canal "Oh, wow, you've got a big old pimple in there, that must hurt!" Thanks, Doc. My humiliation knows no bounds.

I am almost 50 years old. And I am struggling to figure out where to spread the zit cream and where to spread the wrinkle cream. If I have to go through acne again, I get 15 year old knees back as well, damn it!

This is bullshit!

Darling, you are NOT almost 50.

I am not almost 50 so you can't be either.

I heard that sex cures acne. I *know* that it cures headcolds.

Sex - it's not just for breakfast anymore ;)

Oh, darling, I know of what you rant! I complained about the pimples/wrinkles to a dermatologist -- he laughed knowingly and diagnosed rosacea, and put me on a low dose of tetracycline. I still get the odd zit now and then, but it's MUCH better than it was.

I stopped getting any pimples when I started using baking soda as a face scrub with vinegar for "toner" afterwards. If you try this, be GENTLE as baking soda is very abrasive- which is why it also makes a fabulous all-purpose cleanser, especially for stainless steel that's gotten oil cooked onto it. Baking soda and vinegar also make a great shampoo and conditioner!

You're not alone, at least. I've had a ridiculous number of zits lately. Frankly, I think it's the LACK of sex.
