Slow going today, no thanks to staying up late last night — couldn’t sleep/wasn’t tired. Post shower with Press’n’Seal (this still cracks me up) led to cleaning up belly button oozes. There are very few things worse than messing with your belly button. For me it is an almost nauseating experience. Not because of what is going on with it right now, but because if I mess with it (clean out, etc) I feel mind boggingly unbalanced afterwards. I know, ear fluid and hairs are your balancers, not the belly button. . . doesn’t matter. Science can’t know everything.
Play with my belly button — I get dizzy. And then my belly button feels funky for a while.
Well, it’s been through 2 thorough cleanings today and it’s not happy, but the oozing has stopped.
I don’t know what is causing the ooze — jeans pulling on skin causing the wound to open up, sitting and standing causing skin pulling, heat and water from the shower doing something (the Press’n’Seal?) . . .
If there is one lesson to be learned from this, and it’s just general health stuff — DO NOT DOUBLE DIP THE Q-TIP. You dabble it in there, clean up what you can and don’t put it back in a 2nd time.
This means I end up using about 3 Q-Tips per cleaning, but at least things are as sanitary as they can be.
*sigh* Tonight is a night of reading books and possibly watching TV. There needs to be a return to the violin lessons too as I’m not nearly as gimped as I was last week when I actually WENT to my violin lesson and had to sit down.
