Bumps, Lumps and Goiters***UPDATED***

So I have the pox.


Well, I'm not sure what I have really. But I have a series of bumps and lumps on the back of my head and neck. Here is what WebMD says I have:

acne
cysts
scoleraderma
alopecia (HAIR FALLS OUT-ACK, no thank you!)
shingles
THE POX-see video
or THE CANCER

Personally, I think I caught McMommy's Goiter when I was guest blogging over there...that's right her goiter has jumped ship and come to live on me...and make babies...on my hairline.

So besides feeling dead sexy, thinking I have caught the pox and might not be able to go on my treasured girl's weekend...I'm fine...how are you?

Go to 6:01

UPDATE: Went to the doctor...he was confused and confusing.
He thinks it is folliculitis but then said something about a staph infection that sounded not fun. So I'm off to read up about it more.
He also said it maybe the early signs of Shingles. That is right, I might be 86 years old! Bring on the Sizzlers and the Shingles, baby. The Sizzlers and the Shingles sounds like a geriatric gang war.

Hello (Leigh sent me :) I've had itchy skin during our 4-day heatwave - Hope that doesn't transfer to your nice blog as well lol!

Gracious! Hope you get rid of it!

Buffalo Betty said...

Go see a doctor and get better! Maybe it's related to your new hair color? Using a different shampoo or styling products? I sure hope it's not the pox! And it can't be scleroderma, that's already taken ;) Sure hope you feel better soon.

Oh no! Have you had chicken pox before? Thanks for putting "Friends" up... maybe you caught it from Phoebe? ;)

In any case, feel better soon my friend!

Hope it turns out to be just acne.

Was reading up on your other postings and I like your new hair cut.

Amber said...

Ugh, I'm so sorry.

But not that sorry if it is contagious via blogs? :-)

Bless your heart. Sounds like you are going through it right now. Hope all is well soon.

I am here by way of Leigh. She speaks very highly of you.

Take care.

Leigh said...

GrrrrahhhhhhHH! Oh, no. Please say that you havent gone out and purchased some knee highs and are popping geritol in between bran muffins and prunes.

Hope you get better soon!

GranolaGirl said...

YUCK. And you totally need to post a picture.
Seriously though... I'm so sorry. I really hope you don't have to miss Maleless!!

Liz said...

I'm so glad you shared a favorite "frends" moment with me! I'm a total Friends addict, so getting a little "fix" here was awesome!

Elizabeth said...

you know as soon as you were describing your symptoms i thought it might be shingles...don't ask me why. my mom got shingles when she was in her 30s (she'd already had chick pox), so don't feel too badly about it being a geriatric issue. hehehehe

have you had chic pox before? if so, shingles would be my guess.

hope you feel better soon!!!!!

hahaha!! I thought my goiter felt smaller! It must have made itself a nice home in your neck.

Although this Shingles thing? If that's what it is, that is not good. I heard it can be very painful!! Not only that, but now I guess I'll have to stick a AAA sticker on your bumper and attach a flower to your radio antenna....

(expect a little something in the mail from yours truly next week...consider it a get well present)

trying said...

Love the friends clip and your guest post on Mc Mommy--
Hope you get well and it is nothing serious.

McMommy is really spreading it around. Add me to the list of unwanted extras. Do you know what a skin tag is? Ugh, not pretty, my friend. Hopefully I can get it taken care of ASAP. I feel for you.
