My Deepest Apologies, I’ve been Ill.


I want to apologize first off for not making a post in what feels like forever on here, and I guess secondly for putting all the pressure making new postings on this site to Faustus.  That poor Pirate bastard has had his hands full between pillaging, looting, and of course coming up with interesting posts for here.  Now on to what is happening with me.

I am a medical enigma to begin with.  If it is rare and non-life threatening then I have probably had it as a kid.  Yep I was the first kid in my elementary school to have Bronchial Asthma.  I missed an average of 70-80 days of school a year due to illness and hospital stays.  Now I am not looking for sympathy just laying out the back story to all the wonderful information I received today.

About 3 weeks ago I started to get this really weird rash all over my body except for my face.  Now of all the things I used to get, rashes and hives were not one of them.  I waited a week to go to the doctors about hoping it would go away but the damn thing never did.  When the doctor saw it, it kinda freaked him out due to the fact he had never seen anything like it.  Just my luck.  SO to speed the story along, 5 vials of blood, 9 pages of blood test results, 1 threat of scarlet fever, 1 referral to a dermatologist, and 2 skin biopsies later, they told me I have this rare condition called PLEVA.  Yes it is an acronym but the real name is too long to type.   If you want to read about it go HERE.  To sum it up, I look like I am a plague carrier that hobbles along due to the fact my feet are swollen and my whole body (minus my face) is covered in red spots.  I love this excerpt from Wiki:

There is no known cause of this disease…It is not contagious and currently there is no cure for the disease.

I was told that this medicine they gave me should make the spots go away.  OH well, that’s the reason I have not been posting, just thought you nice people reading this would care to know that I am now part leopard….strange huh?!
