Rosy cheeks, music and sloth mode photo challenge addition.

Hello my friends!

Happy Wednesday! What the hell where did the time go!? Well… I missed last weeks photo challenge. I totally thought I would get that posted before hand – oops! So here are my additions to the WP Weekly Photo Challenge – Reflecting :

WHEW! Now that I can sleep tonight for adding those, I will add this weeks another day haha.


Back to life…

GIVE ME RED WINE OR GIVE ME DEATH: Adulthood is filled with doctor’s appointments. Seriously, I have been to some sort of doc like 3 times in the past week. BTW annual check ups are so important, make sure you are scheduling them and taking care of yourself!

Ahem… excuse my Mom moment there.

Today’s visit was to the dermatologist.

Grey’s Anatomy – Brave New World (Dermatology Episode)

I have never had the pleasure and of course when I would go, there was an irate fella screaming at the poor derm assistants. I felt bad for them. Here they are, in this lovely place and Mr. I have been late the past 3 times (from what my sonar ears overheard) was not happy that he made this trip again without being seen….apparently this man needs a watch or a lesson in punctuality….I was not the one to make mention to this angry little man.

I did not realize that I needed my Hulk pants on today nor did I realize that I needed to channel my inner Bruce Banner to get my irritated skin checked out. Also, I was just completed “Active Aggressor” training for work last week, it was still fresh in my mind. RUN, HIDE OR FIGHT was replaying in my head…also the fact that I should always go for the eyes if I indeed do choose to fight. This was the lovely Public Safety/Secret Service man’s words, not mine. So keep that in mind friends! ALWAYS GO FOR THE EYES! Or hide, which will probably be my go to.

Anyway! Back to my skin…No my friends, green hulk skin was not my issue (or perhaps the lack there of was?) – redness is my issue. I have been struggling with sensitive skin for as long as I can remember. Unfortunately, as I have aged it has progressed into angry, all the green concealer in the world will not cover this shade issue. Additionally, my skin started to get lesions, more broken capillaries, itchiness and my face just fucking hurts now. So, I figured now is the time. The lovely Doc looked at my makeup-less face and immediately said rosacea. Of course, I figured this by all my “expert” Googling and experiences. This obviously needs to be fixed  because, how am I am going to convince a man to “put a ring” on it one day  looking wine drunk 24/7! Jk…Kinda .  

 Then it happened… this man had the nerve to inform me of “triggers” that worsen this rosy cheek/lush/always embarrassed look… Spicy foods – no prob, I do not really care for it but RED WINE!? I LOVE RED WINE! “white is better for rosacea patients…”

I am sorry? Clearly this man does not know me…which we did just meet so I will give him a pass because…. red is the only wine that I really enjoy. So…as he writes up my new care plan and writing scripts, I am thinking about my coffee that is waiting in my car for me… that must now “be left to cool” or drink iced coffee to help with this whole “situation.” FINE. So the very important part of this story is… Do you happen to have any White Wine recommendations?! I guess I am going to have to find my budget puny wine in white… that is right. I picked up this bottle of “Sheep Thrills” based solely on the pun. I live shamelessly…Or sheepishly? !

Just take it all in… it’s beautiful^. Wait…WHAT IF I AM A LUSH!?

Moving on!

Music in my ears: Something crazy happened today, I actually listened to music at work. I had mentioned this in a blog a long time ago regarding my depression. I have recently been listening to it in the car and now in the office. I honestly cannot remember the last time I did this. Not even bird songs….which is a whole other thing. Just silence. I am sure this means something… perhaps everything is coming back together. I am feeling closer to friends, I am getting more motivated (aka – I set up my printer and cleaned my office!), I have new business adventures on the horizon and loving it. Caterpillar…well we are talking and doing okay at the moment, there is more SUN now that we are in Spring FULL SWING! So…without me realizing it, perhaps I popped out of the rabbit hole for a bit? My co-worker even noticed the music playing today… that is a real friend by the way πŸ™‚ they know you better than you know yourself.

Blog LogI just wanted to take this tim to thank all of my followers again! I cannot believe that I have 200 people who are actively or once interested in what I have to say. You guys are pretty much the best! I have made friends around the world, found fellow sufferers/warriors of different kinds and with different backgrounds regarding mental health and chronic illnesses (thank you for all your support and I hope you feel supported from me as well!). I have also found fellow lovers of photos and snapping them – it is so wonderful to have you all here *ugly cry face*. THANK YOU AGAIN!

Speaking of Blog Love, I was nominated for a Versatile Blogger Award! THANK YOU @tiredmindtypingfingers ! I did not forget and will be posting it soon – PROMISE! ❀

  1. Ugh…. tell that doctor that red wine is the only wine worth drinking! Can you limit the effects by drinking water between glasses of red? I hate white wine! What about rose?

    Also, that lil pug gif at the end just made my day.

    1. I know, he clearly was trying to KILL ME. I rebelled, I had some red wine yesterday – take that doc! I hope you are having a lovely day/week. I believe my intern hiring storm has passed so I will be around more – thank goodness!

      Also… that pug is my spirit animal I think??? ❀

  2. If you like sparkling wines/sparkling drinks, Barefoot brand makes a line called “Spritzers”. πŸ™‚ They come in bottles and cans, I just now found out lol. Sorry about the dermatologist appointment! I hate that disappointed feeling I have when hearing I need to stop eating or drinking my favorite thing. 😦

    1. Hi lovely! Sorry I am just now getting back to this!!! Ah the intern hiring storm is officially over…. I think? *knock on wood!* I will be looking into these fab sounding spritzers this weekend for sure! As a treat for making it through this pay period haha.

      How are you doing!? I look forward to hearing from you πŸ™‚

      1. Hi there! I took the weekend to reboot from the crazy week and feeling more human.

        Mist importantly, how are you? Are you feeling better? What’s wrong love!? I’m here for you – sorry it took me a few days to get back!

      2. I’m sorry to hear that! Health issues are the worst and I’m quite used to them myself. I have not had a colonoscopy yet. I probably should have but I think my anxiety of it has kept me away. When is your procedure? You should def treat yourself after!

      3. Thank you! The anxiety about these types of things is really the worst, I’ve been having trouble eating the past week because of nerves. Fortunately it’s a good idea to eat light a few days beforehand though because of the prep, lol. I plan to treat myself after with some good food! Haha. It’s this week. Ahh.

      4. Oh I could not imagine! I had to do some more than average prep for my ovarian cyst removal. I will NEVER forget that uncomfortable feeling and supplies that came along with it lol.

        I hope your nerves ease and the test results come okay! You must certainly deserve a good meal after! I’m sending you all the good vibes! Hang in there love!!! ❀️

    1. Hello lovely!!!! I am always red too 😦 ugh and I like immediate results….turns out this will not be the case haha. I will have to be patient I guess….it would be nice not to have to keep experimenting (i hope) with all the greens and thick makeup to cover it all. It kinda fucking sucks huh!? You know my pain! Also, I miss you and I believe my intern hiring storm is over *knock on wood* I will be around again! YAY! ❀ I hope your day is going well πŸ™‚

      1. I had a good day, love. I miss you too!! You’ve been MIA haha. It’s shit. The makeup doesn’t work unless you use a super thick layer and look like a decomposing body.

    1. Hello beautiful! Sorry I have been off the radar this past 2 weeks, the hiring intern frenzy about killed me. I should be more active here and I will get back to your email! Sorry for my delay and have you tried the green primer!? I hate that you have this battle too! Rosy damn cheeks! ❀ ❀
