Oooops, missed a week, slapped wrist.
End of week 7.
Week 6 shot past in a blur as I was so busy. I guess that says a lot as I was actually able to be busy and not constantly get bugged by the MSy shakes.
Week 7 I've been just as busy and week 8 gets worse as I'm busier, however, I've had a couple of reminders that I'm not 100% over the last few days.
I was back to the left side weakness and not concentrating problem. Sat at the computer, engrossed in something and without giving it a second thought, picked up a hot cup of coffee with my left hand and promptly let it go straight into my lap. Fifteen minutes in the bath showering my nether regions with cold water to stop the burning will hopefully remind me to pay more attention in future. That and the permanently sticky patch on the carpet that I have to peel my feet off. Why can you never get sugary drinks out of carpets?
My other problem has been down to the weather. Sun and my skin just do not seem to like each other. I've been wearing long sleeves and high necks but found my nose and the side of my forehead not covered by my fringe, have gone bright red.
Yesterday we went to my Father-in-law's birthday bash. Garden party. I sat in the shade and wore a hat and sun glasses. About 2 hours in I could feel spits of rain on my hands and arms. Nobody else could. Looking up at the sky, not a cloud in sight so I got convinced someone was spraying me with water for a laugh. Despite spending some considerable time watching what everyone was up to from behind dark glasses, nobody seemed to be doing anything untoward with a spray bottle.
Now, I know this makes me sound totally paranoid but if you knew my OH's family you'd understand the suspicion.
Having arrived home, I took a walk over to the shop and all the way felt like fine rain again. By this time I was realising it was me and that it must have been my nerve endings firing. Then I got the burning feet bit but in my hands! It felt just like I had reached into a hot oven without gloves on.
About an hour after being indoors a heat rash appeared and boy did it sting. No amount of after sun was helping. It finally eased off about 3am and this morning it's just slightly sensitive and very red.
I had intended doing some gardening today but short of scaring the neighbours witless by appearing covered from head to foot, including dark glasses, hat and gloves, I can't think of a way to avoid the reaction again. My OH has a Gorilla costume that might be an option. I could start a local rumour that the mad cat and hedgehog rescue lady has now completely lost it and appears to be starting a zoo.
