Wow. Does sound like the Singing Detective disease. And of course, that is when you began to hate god.  &)

You know, I have that movie and never made the connection. I was at home, though, not in a hospital.

Exactly my point.

And your suffering did not make you turn to supernatural beings, either. I have had bad experiences, survived serious health scares, seen and heard weird sh!t, and have undergone various hardships of the sort that religious people think they need a god belief to get through. And I have not even considered the slightest possibility of a supernatural being.

The physical pain with no pain killers was on my mind the most.  I was at the beginning stages when I was banned for life at ATT (atheist think tank), came here more regularly, it helped, and started spending more time at funtrivia, also helped plus I played Resident Evil 4 a lot, killing bad guys helped to get my mind off the pain.  I hope no one gets it here, or elsewhere, the physical pain is really unbearable. Your entire body has no moisture, and it's hard to move, and when you do that part of the body just bleeds everywhere. I thought the physical abuse I went through as a child was bad but it pales in comparison.

I looked it up, and I may have had an off-shoot of Erythrodermic Psoriasis. According to Healthline:

Quote
According to the National Psoriasis Foundation, erythrodermic psoriasis is the rarest form of psoriasis, and it is very serious (NPF, 2012). This form of psoriasis looks like severe burns to the skin. It may cover large portions of the body, and exfoliation often occurs in larger pieces than the small scales typical to most psoriasis. It is very painful and may require hospitalization.

Erythrodermic psoriasis can occur with pustular psoriasis or develop from widespread, poorly controlled plaque psoriasis. It can also be caused by a bad sunburn, infection, alcoholism, significant stress, or abrupt discontinuation of a systemic psoriasis medicine.

The picture it showed looked like the lovely version of it, mine looked 10x worse. The Dermatologist who I ended up seeing took a shitload of pictures of me, and asked if he could write a medical paper on me, I obliged but told him not to show my face, or use my name. If I want to be "famous", it won't be for that.

He was surprised it only lasted a little over a year. His last case of it in the early to mid 1980s, the guy had it for more than 10 years.

He said it's difficult to study the disease since it's extremely rare.

This is the comment I made at atheistthinktank when I had it for a couple of months:

I don't want y'all to think that I just up and left.  In mid August I had what looked like "hives", and I was told to take Benodryl for it, and I did, and it had the opposite reaction than it was supposed to have, and now I have a rare skin condition which, from what the Dermatologist stated 'an off-shoot of psoriasis' -- whatever the hell that means.  I first was on steroids which did nothing, then he put me on Methotrexate which actually made everything worse, and now he doesn't know what the hell is going on with my skin, and so he's sending me to a specialist; which is why I'm online, he gave me the address but not directions, so I logged on to google map to get directions; the appointment is next Wednesday.

I just wanted y'all to know that this conversation isn't over.  I'm not that easy to get rid of, and I won't be any different when I return.   I don't know when I will return but the way my skin is feeling just being here typing this, probably awhile.

I look and feel like shit -- if that makes anyone feel good. :P

I was going to just post this at wwgha but it seems the one day I actually get online, it isn't working -- typical for that website, I guess.

Anyway...

I have a medical paper written on me, too. I was one of two women worldwide (the other one was in Scandinavia somewhere) known to have the life-threatening, rare condition I ended up with when I was pregnant.

Luckily I lived in a university area with highly advanced medical technology, had an income from a government fellowship, good health insurance, and a great husband. And, as the doctors kept marveling about, a very high pain tolerance.  Because of all that, I was able to stay alive and have a beautiful baby daughter.[1]
 1. One of the many reasons I am radically pro-abortion. If a woman in my situation decides she does not want to endure extreme pain for several months and risk dying to have a baby, she should be able to become unpregnant, safely and legally.

Damn, Nam. Can't imagine that.

It does sound horrendous. And I guess I'm glad it was only a year... Happy for you that it's not chronic. And so happy you can type again  :laugh:

By an armadillo. I went outside (3:30am est) to sit in my chair on my porch and smoke a cigarette, and a couple of minutes later an armadillo was at the bottom of the ramp and it began to walk normally up the ramp to the main porch, it sniffed my foot then turned around and walked down the ramp and into the woods.

What does it mean?
It is a message from God. The armadillo is symbolic of a huge tumor approaching you if you continue to smoke.
Fortunately, the tumor will depart spontaneously.
Unfortunately, you will become the focus of a Miracle Cure and be beset by Catholics who will build a shrine outside your house.

No.

And if it does, fuck the addiction, I'm getting morphine.

Hoping it doesn't Nam.  And if I'd ever had anything like that and it did then think I'd go for the morphine too!

I heard that. Morphine was invented for pain of that level.
