TMI Tuesday.....




Mr. Knowitall is taking a day off today.
Unfortunately TMI Tuesday is still on!
Starting last Friday afternoon, and I'm NOT going into great detail. I have been in extreme pain. I had not one but TWO boils on my Butt. Now I've them before, and they usually come to a head drain naturally.
These were like Biblical Plagues!
Today they finally started to 'empty' on their own. I'm applying warm compresses and peroxide to them. But it is both painful and embarrassing...Sorry.

I really would like to thank everyone that stops by everyday and comments. I am a terrible blogger buddy, and I a owe you all my heartfelt gratitude for cheering me up! I appreciate the wonderful 55's you write. For those that never write a 55 and still visit me...You Guys are Awesome..Thank You, Thank You Thank You!!!
I'm starting to feel back to normal, slowly but surely.
Monday's date was the most infamous day of the 20th Century..Thursday's date is the second most infamous!


As for the picture? Thats how it feels!!

Peace...!!!

If it feels remotely as bad as that picture looks, all I can say is -- yowzer! Keep the compresses and peroxide going and feel better soon!

A few tips that work well:

grate up some potatoes and make a poultice. Apply to the infected area and it draws everything out. It's messy but it's a quick help

Another is a salve called boil ease, it's great. you put it on the infected area bandage it with large bandaids to catch the liquid and soon it will help dry up the boil.

One word of caution though when boils bust if the liquid of the boils gets on other areas it can cause the infection to spread and cause more. You probably already know that, but these are things that have worked for me.

Get Well Galen

I prefer my colonoscopies to be performed by professionals and in slightly less public places.

As for you and TMI Tuesday. Aptly put...TMI.
