Normal skin!

Postby ixel-chick » Wed Jan 28, 2015 6:17 pm

:-D Not that my skin is normally abnormal, but it's certainly been feeling like it.

I'd forgotten how it felt not to have painful skin. Last year, any little thing happening to my skin has hurt like crazy. One of my dogs has a habit of scratching me, when she's not getting all the attention she wants (she's like a snuggle baby - wants to be in the arms all the time).

I remember mentioning it to a doc... how I would suddenly scream with pain when my dog scratched me... something so little that used to be an annoyance, had suddenly turned into living hell. As I said, nothing had changed with my skin, so something had certainly changed in how I feel pain.

On bad days it was enough with the clothes touching me.

And yesterday, I was holding the new sink in place (re-doing the kitchen), and my dog started scratching at my legs... and I just told her "wait a minute, mum's busy" - and as she kept scratching (the world "wait" doesn't exist in her world), it dawned on me that my skin is back to normal! Although I'm now painfree, the realisation that my skin is back to normal made me want to cry with happiness. :-D

And yes - my doggie got a good old snuggle as soon as the sink was in place.
