Well the good news... I got a call back about a job today! I was getting discouraged because no one was wanting to hire. Today a bookstore called and is interested, I have an interview Wednesday. It's only seasonal, but I know there is a chance to be hired on after, so I'm happy
Bad news? I might have freaking shingles! My Stepdad and Tony have had shingles, but it was quite some time ago. Well yesterday morning I see these bite looking things at the back of my leg... they were raised like hives but not red at all except tiny dots like bites. Throughout the day, my leg starts getting sore and my leg is getting pretty red. Today I looked at them and they are REALLY red, and the inflammation is spreading. I sent a picture to Tony because his Mom is a nurse and wanted to look at them. Well they both said it looks exactly like shingles. I feel fine otherwise, besides a muscle type pain around my pubic bone and back of the leg. I really wasn't wanting to go to the doctor, but Tony's Mom said since the inflammation is spreading much like shingles does, I need to go. Tony said he felt fine at first, but then the pain kicked in a couple days after the symptoms first started. So grrrr.... this sucks. I have no idea where I would get sick from. My doctor called me tonight and told me that right where I hurt in the pubic area is where a lymph node is, so it's probably not a muscle pain, it's my lymph nodes fighting off infection.
So blah! I REALLY hope this is just a bug bite like I thought it was, because I really really want to go to this interview Wednesday. I'm really hoping it's not shingles, because my stepdad and Tony felt like hell when they got it
So cross your fingers that it isn't shingles and that I get the job! <3
Congrats on the job interview! I hope you don't have shingles though, I've heard horrible things about it. My BFF has it right now.
Yeah, Tony and my stepdad are usually rockstars with pain, but they were in serious pain when they had it. I'm hoping I don't... I feel fine now, just have no idea what in the heck this thing is on my leg. lol I took a pantyliner, put a good amount of calamine lotion on it, and taped it to my leg. I'm thinking if it is a bug bite, that will help. I jsut didn't have any bandages, lol.
But thanks for the congrats! I've been a stay at home Mom and worked from home since I was 19, and I'm 26, almost 27. So it will be a bit different to have a job, but I'm excited!
