after today, i'm not ruling out scurvy as the next illness i get. so the allergy/rash/ebola virus is none of those -- it's shingles. wtf. it's like chicken pox redux, only with more pain. i was chalking up the pain to pms and, really, who could tell the difference between types of pain that hit the same areas. apparently it's entirely internal, which means it was my own (lack of) immune system that brought it about...it's probably fall out from the surgery, etc etc etc and is definitely fall out from...well, fuck. i was about to say the stress of the summer but let's get real -- 2006 has pretty much sucked ass for me health-wise.

ok, so maybe ries is right in that i can't really back up my statement of "who was i in the last life? hilter?" based solely on the car towing incident. but i'm starting to think that i was some kind of behavioral psychologist that tortured kids and monkeys.

so this brings the grand total of chronic diseases to...FOUR! one more and i get to call out BINGO. well, there's always the next life, i suppose. oh -- and if you have kids that you want to get exposed to the chicken pox, let me know! apparently you can't catch shingles but if you've never had the chicken pox, i can give it to you! no payment is required but you can make a donation if you want to support my chicken pox spreading efforts.

I never said you probably weren't "Hilter"? Who's Hilter anyway...?

it's dyslexic for hitler. i'm on antihistimines and can't see straight. as for hilter, he/she was probably someone who never got sick. ;)

shingles...well, at least it's not the licorice!

just suck on some limes all day and youll be free of scurvy. but maybe you better watch out for rabies...

I think Hilter indeed never got sick... because it's a windmill?

yeah, i've got the fruit thing down and i did get a tiny bit of sun in brighton so i think i'm safe from scurvy -- pirate's aaaaargh inserted here. but yeah rabies...or rocky mountain spotted fever...they are up for grabs.

the good news is that the shingles are now receeding. but it hurts to type because some are on my hands...so typical me...
