Oh my gosh! The love I am feeling right now is ridiculous. I cannot thank you all enough. The posts made me cry. Grant it, I had already been crying today, but a happy cry was nice for once.
Also, I think my zits heard you, because the two things that showed up out of the blue last night started getting really itchy shortly after my post. I barely looked at them and they both popped. The good kind, like my cheek did earlier today, where it all comes out at once and then it bleeds - very minimal touching of skin. This is almost always a sign for me that it is done. Gross, I know, but I have been finding that it helps me when other people post some gritty details - things that I always thought only happened to me, and now know that a lot of people experience.
Normally a fireworks of successful extractions would perk me right up, but I'm finding it isn't the case this time. It's just so discouraging that they showed up at all, it takes all the joy out of that cheek cyst resolving.
So I'm left with a deep bugger on my chin just under my lip on the left. I've been able to see this one through the surface for a while, and wondered when it would get angry. I don't mind it as much because I had accepted its inevitability a long time ago.
It's the knowledge that there is still more to come that I don't even realize that is the horror for me right now.
Beyond my control.
Thank you all for being there. It helps a ton. I hope you are having better days. Persnickity - sounds like things are going really well! Ciara - update? Petrichor - glad to meet you, I have seen your log as well!
