Well I went to the doc's this morning and we believe we've narrowed the cause of a mysterious reoccurring rash I've been getting on-and-off for the last 2-3 months down to either:

a) Stress and anxiety, or
b) Change in washing powder they use at the laundrette.

Both are apparently equally possible so I'm going to make sure I'm/they're using non-bio for my clothes to see if this produces a change in my skin condition.

On the stress front, well it could be a numbre of factors causing 'stress'. The irony is that he's gave me a perscription for some pills to help get rid of the rash and lower my stress levels and I went to pull some money out of the bank only to find out I had gone over my overdraft limit because of a combination of standing orders (rent, visa bill and loan repayment). So I ended up having to take an advance to get myself back on the right side of my overdraft and also to pay for my perscription. Yes, I think I do know some of the causes of my stress and anxiety at present. Luckily the money side of it is only short term but it's still annoying.

The other thing I went in for we're giving a month. If I'm not feeling better by then it's time for the blood tests to begin. He'd have preferred to have given me a blood test today but being my needle-phobic self I managed to delay it for a bit and he doesn't think it's anything major (as I don't have anyone in either branch of my family whose suffered anything major in this department) so he's happy to give me a month.

I feel like I've had a really shit weekend one way or another, although I know this hasn't really been the case. Despite arguements with the girlie we ended up having a very nice Saturday night together. I enjoyed my time round my mothers yesterday and it was good seeing my sisters and their other halves.

I would really like to get utterly trashed and enjoy myself but money is telling me otherwise at present which sucks. Instead of blowing a wad of cash going clubbing the household at present should just use it to be much more boring and pay bills.

I'm still working on a Christmas deadline. If things still suck then I'll have to look at everything again.

Anyway, enough of me moaning. I'll try and make the next post a bit more upbeat.

Hugs to you all LJ-land. xx

I didn't make it to B-Movie because I was at Nick Cave down in Brixton in the evening and had to work on saturday morning. I was hoping to make it but ended up being in a very weird, depressed, mood and actually left the gig early to go home.

Hopefully I'll be more cheerful and make the next B-Movie.

Poor you! We are equally poverty sticken at the moment and haven't been up to much. If you fancy a change, let one of us know if you fancy coming over for dinner some night. (We have a pile of chocolate beer coutsey of the sister!)

if that cream has any kind of steroid or hydrocortisone in it stop using it immediately. i've been a long term various weird rash ezema sufferer and the doctors are useless.

calendula or graphites (V V good) cream, nelsons brand, homeopathic rememdies
dont be suprised if its a little worse to begin with, keep applying it.

homeopathic medicine truly changed my life regardless of proper medical opinions and whatever. i like it an awful lot.

mail me if you need more stuff to know

I've been given pills, not cream.

If you'd like to send me some natural remedy suggestions by email (angus @ cubicle7.freeserve.co.uk) I'll happily look into them though.

Thanks :)
