Also, I'm concerned about a mole on my skin that's gotten bigger (read: skin cancer) and I'd really like to have it taken off. Except it's located on my inner thigh, almost right up against my panty line. So that'll be awkward to have looked at. *sigh* I don't want to see more doctors or have more surgeries.

My prosthetic eye looks pretty good. The colors match. I learned that if it's too high up or down compared to my other eye then I can just move it with my finger. My eyelids are having problems, though. That's why my eye still looks funny. The ocularist said she thinks my eyelids will settle in the two weeks between when I got it and when I'll make my next appointment, but if it doesn't I'll need to get surgery on my eyelids to make myself look normal again. Please see previous comment on surgery.

Money is troublesome. There's tons of medical bills that I know are coming but haven't arrived yet. There's tuition due in the fall and spring of next year. I don't want to take out more student loans. We're not eligible for federal grant money. David wants a new computer because his keeps dying (often enough to make his computer exceedingly frustrating to use). There's other things I'd like to buy, such as a wheat grinder and pool passes for the summer.

Get that mole looked at! Now! You have a history of skin cancer and have NO BUSINESS putting off mole-inspection!

oh - I saw an OB once with a fun little rash (during a pregnancy). basically it was eczema, i guess. but it was right up everywhere where I pretty much only felt comfortable seeing my OB at first. and he's like "uh.. see a dermatologist"
and then that was 'kind of' interesting then going to a dermatologist and stripping.
