Don’t call us, we’ll call you

Childhood flashback…ugh!

Filed under: History, Personal, Pregnancy — Tags: , , , — llcall @ 2:36 am

I am supposed to be at Disneyland at this very moment.  So I am none too pleased to be sitting at my parents’ house in Southern California, trying anything to keep myself entertained while others enjoy Splash Mountain.  Why am I not at Disneyland, you ask?

Have I ever told you about the wicked bad eczema I had as a child?  This is no joke.  It covered me from head to toe when I was about 4 years old…even my face and scalp (must have been hideous; luckily my big brother broke the camera 🙂 ). 

I suppose I should be very glad that it only plagued me in my 4th and now 29th years, but I confess that I do not feel relieved.  My whole body is so itchy that I can’t even think about anything else…and I wake up every 1 to 1.5 hours when the itch just won’t be ignored.  This is about week 2 of this problem and so far, it is only getting worse.

I realize that in the whole scheme of my life and health, this should be no big deal considering I’ve spent hours strapped to backboards, had burning needles inserted into my neck, and the like, but for the love of pete, this itching is so incessant.  It just won’t be denied!  What’s a girl to do to salvage a Southern California vacation?



  1. Get back, get back, get back to where you ‘otta’ belong…[think South Pacific here…] …Disneyland is calling, where…Thurs-day is a special day it’s the day we get ready for Diiiisney. On Thursday we go, or change our mind, we gotta get ready for Fri-day. Name it, Linds. I’ll get it for that itchy itchy itchy skin!

  4. Uh oh! I don’t really approve of you going to Disneyland either way, but I am sorry your sleeping is getting interrupted. 🙂 I hope things get better for you.

  10. I’ve had minor eczema for a few years now. I put a steroid cream on it that makes it go away fast, and it helps my muscles grow faster 🙂 Anyway, the point is that I can sympathize somewhat with you. It’s no fun being itchy.
