Tinny What?


Tinea Versicolor
(ti-nee-ah ver-si-color)


***

That's what Boo has. Some sort of yeast growth on her that creates these salmon colored spots.

Flares up when it's humid. Can be itchy, but not necessarily.

Generally, a common side effect of living in skin.

Can you believe it? My Boo's got something relatively normal? Ha! Amazing!

***

The dermatologist gave me some cream to put on it to make it go away. Honestly? It doesn't bother her in the least, so why fuss with it? I mean, it's not like it's some rare skin disease or something. This is something we can actually LIVE with! I don't even HAVE to give her the medicated cream if I don't want to!



Just let me revel in this for a while, ok? I'm savoring the experience.....

Well, look at you, with your normal problem! ;)

Seriously though - I know exactly what you mean. It really can make you giddy, just to think that *for once* it's something EASY.

Here's hoping you have a WHOLE BUNCH OF EASY STUFF for a good long while!

Normal is good...unless you are my Ben. My 'normal' child got upset when we called him normal this weekend. We asked if he was abnormal and he said yes.

Think he's jealous because both his brothers have 'special' teachers come see them??

Enjoy the normal condition!
