I'm slowly getting acclimated to the boards here, so I figured I might as well jump in headfirst with a couple of pictures that pretty much do my life justice. I'm not punching that guy, BTW. It's my roommate.
Okay I just got diagnoised today with something real bad(or cool)
So first started with some rashes on the back of my head, then i started getting the rashes over my left side of the neck and spreading toward my throat/chin area.
I work with a few physicians and they were thinking i was allergic to something, and one of them thought i had herpes but he woudln't put his foot on it cause i wasn't in terrible pain like some of his patietns were(painful enough that they cry to sleep.)
Well here it is: Herpes Zoster
A little background on this. If you had chicken pox, then you have this. This virus is not killed by your immune system. The dormant form resides in the ganglion(nerve clusters in the head) and they wait for their oppurtunity to strike you. So I have been in a lot of stress a few months ago(medical school application process) and I had a cold just before this outbreak happened.
I figure since I have never posted a pic to you guys on Finalgear, I might as well do it now.
You are all welcome to judge me. I used to be fatter than this. Lost 20lbs already.
