On my right arm I have two abcesses; one above the crook of my arm, the other just slightly above my wrist. That one is 10 times the size as the other and is so whoppingly huge and painful I cannot take it. It has made my arm swell from fingertip to shoulder and I cannot move my fingers, or bend my arm. I can only brush my hair with my left hand and apply my make-up with the same and since I am right handed, its making everything take longer by about five fold. This abcess is so huge I cannot explain. My arm is the size of my calf. I am on 3 types of antibiotics 2 4 times a day, 3 4 times a day and another 3 4 times a day. It isn't making a difference but I go to the doctors in the morning to renew my methadone script so I am not worrying too much. I just took 4 codydramol, on my 3rd can of special brew so the pain has subsided SLIGHTLY. also been rubbing germolene into it, which is a local anaesthetic. helps a tad. I woke up this morning vommiting violently; that is what happened the last time I had an abcess. It actually makes me seriously sick. I have a high temperature and my pharmacist noticed today when I went to pick up my methadone I looked deathly pale and was sweating profoundly. Part and parcel of a abcess and of drug abuse. Occupational hazzard I am afraid.
Junkylife has now gone; I have purchased a domain & hosting but I am too dumb to make a layout. I have lost my only outlet (junkylife) and I feel detached and sorrowful; I need to work on it asap as it was the only last bit of purpose I had.
