  • Mood:


Went for my second ESWT(which stands for Extracorporeal ShockWave Therapy)-session earlier this afternoon; and I sincerely hope the next 4 to 5 days following on the treatment won't be as painful as they were last week. The pain had just about subsided to ignorable level when my poor old elbow was blasted again. This week's ultrasound didn't show much of an improvement compared to last week's, but then, and considering the pain I was in, I hadn't expected it to so soon. We'll see if there's any next week, after which there'll be a 2-week break, and then another 3 sesions.

A couple of years ago, I woke up to find a mosquito bite on my face, in a spot slightly below my left eye. I didn't treat it in any way, just waited for the itch, the bump and the angry redness to go away, which it did eventually...but every so often, and for no reason that I can think of, there it is again, minus the itch, in the exact same spot. It came back again 2 days ago, and I wish I knew of a way to get rid of it once and for all, because I'm terrible at covering it up with makeup. People will ask me whether I've been to a kid's party, what with that green smudge on my cheek. Does anyone have any helpful suggestions on how to deal with this phantom bite?

Sick and tired of the grey skies and unseasonably cool temperatures. Here we are at the end of May, still wearing our winter clothes, can you believe it? And it doesn't seem as if summer will be making any sort of move in this direction any time soon, as the forecast for the next week only promises more rain and even colder air.
