good news: I'm up to date on my tetnis shot - a world of possibility
good news: I'm up to date on my tetnis shot
so i'm kinda too lazy to re-type this so i'm gonna copy and paste what I IM'ed my friend with (minus the rest of the conversation)

me: lol can i tell you about my evening?

me: at least i am updated no my tetnis shots, lol

friend: you may

friend: wow, sounds fun

me: lol so i was going to see a movie with my neighbor

me: i was quite excited about getting out of the apartment

me: (and getting dressed rather than abck in pj's after a shower)

me: and I look down - ready to get in the shower - and lo and behold something on my leg - which i first thought was a scab

me: turns out to be a tick

friend: ack

me: lol
me: which means it's probably been there since sunday

friend: as if last night's House was not enough, they are nasty

random insert - I watch house semi regularly and thoroughly enjoy the show

me: eep which reminds me i should probably head out to get th e prescription (but i'll finish the story first)

me: LOL

me: yeah that made me laugh that it was on House last night

me: I had a "connection" (aww how sweet)

me: ;p;

me: lol*

me: just teasin

me: anyhow so i call my neighbor who's nurse

me: but she doesn't know how to get it out (cause i kinda freaked and pulled 1/2 of it out, but couldn't get the rest)

friend: ack again

me: so after much freakoutage and calling the 2 doctors in my family (neither of whome were home) and attempting to find out if I needed to come in ASAP or could make adoctor's appointment for tomorrow

me: I just went in (my dad said it would be a good idea since it was a tick of the small and possibly therefore deer tick variety)

me: btw - people at the doctors/hospital office reception are silly - I call to find out if it is an "emergency" and they say they can't have a doctor call me unless it is in fact an emergency

me: erg, lol

me: but i'm now updated on my tetnis shot while i was there

me: and the doctor who saw me was nice

friend: fun

me: and we both learned about what to/not to do to get a tick out

friend: yeah, yanking it out probably on the no list ;-)

me: and luckily i was already taping ghost hunters

me: kinda - supposed to take tweezers and attempt to pull it out from the part that is closest to the skin

there was more - but mainly unrelated to the tick other than that I will just throw on sweats tomorroah to get my prescription as I don't feel like going to any of the 24 hour pharmacies since they are none too close

so yeah - on meds, all is ok, and i'm updated on my tetnis shot

back to the grind again tomorrah - oh yeah, and i still got out of the apartment - just not with the intended purpose, lol.

enjoy your evening/day :)~
