As I’m able to begin posting a little more, I think I may try to do a physical update sometime during the day – if/where rash is present, any noticeable and painful inflammation, etc. So let’s start now!
Rash: right hand between lowest knuckles of the index and middle finger (as seen above); pretty much my whole left arm, from the shoulder down; both cheeks, spreading into the neck region.
Pain: left ankle and knee, but much less noticeable than yesterday; left ear is having pressure problems; right hip; rash stinging pretty bad (esp left arm), except on face – there it’s bringing along a feeling of fever (as usual); left hand – stinging, tingling sensations yesterday after leaving DR’s (no logical reason for it) occasionally hurting again.
Inflammation: left ankle swollen, also less noticeable then yesterday; presume that pressure problems in left ear are related to swelling; slight swelling in lymph nodes on right side of neck – not visible but sensed by touch.
Meds: I have not taken any medication today.
Stress level: don’t even ask, haha.
Other notes: Did not sleep well last night – paper and presentation due this morning. Bound to be similar situation all weekend. Feeling extra nauseous today – prob related to stress, lack of sleep, anxiety.
Things to make you/me smile:

Things might get a little worse, but they’re always bound to get better
