Things That Rock

So here's a secret that's not really a secret: I don't like medicine. I take it as little as possible, and even though I am lucky enough to still qualify for my mom's health insurance, I very rarely go to the doctor. I also haven't been sick that much over the past year, which has been a blessing in and of itself!

But all that changed with one little itch.

Well, it started as a little itch. Then it turned into an uncontrollable itching/burning feeling covering literally my ENTIRE body! Maybe this is an oh well. I share this because, for once, I am SO GLAD that I "gave in" and went to the doctor! With the prescription and advice he gave me 2 days ago, my itch has almost completely disappeared.

So, this is a post in which I humbly admit defeat. I don't have anything against modern medicine, I believe in it and I think it works, but I think some part of me wants to believe that I'm always strong enough to fight things on my own. In this case, I definitely wasn't, and that is a lesson I definitely need to remember in other situations!
