If it's not one thing it's another

An age ago, when I was in my teens, I suffered from the condition known as pityriasis versicolor on my upper body. Although it's a fairly harmless, non-infectious disease, it caused me no end of embarrassment while I was at that crucial age between 15 and 20 years old -- not only were my chest and shoulders a funny colour, but the cure involved the liberal and oft-repeated application of a strong-smelling selenium sulfide shampoo on the affected areas.

In the end though, I was cured; but I never forgot how awful it made me feel to have something wrong with my skin, and have people stare at me. So when last week I noticed the tell-tale discolourations and flakings appear on my eyelids, I knew that I had to act. I rushed out and got the selenium sulfide, and daubed it on the spots. That was two days ago. I can now open my eyes a crack and see that I've made things a lot worse. The burning sensation is slowly subsiding, but my eyelids are red, puffy and inflamed, and still flaking. I look like a scarecrow, and I've got an interview on Tuesday...

I'll make another doctor's appointment, but by golly! lately, if it's not one thing it's another. :(

...courtesy of iconzicons. I wish I could do the thing more justice, but we've already established in the past that my LJ customising skills are negligent in the extreme.

In recent weeks, I too have joined the growing ranks of Heroes-fans worldwide. I haven't yet reached that point where one starts to slash characters, but if and when I do I'm sure Noah Bennet will be one of my prime candidates. Possibly with Matt Parkman. Or Mohinder Suresh.

Not with Hiro Nakamura though, who is my favourite overall character. And definitely not with Zach, as that would violate 6A's rules. ::dons halo::
