3. I'll take it- I can part it out for transplants!
Just kidding. I have been getting rashes this winter for some reason myself. Very uncomfortable to say the least. I found some relief by using A & D ointment. (you can find it in the baby care aisle- it is supposed to be for diaper rash))

13. You haven't seen MY body.

11. I'd like a new brain
Mine is all diseased and scarred. I'd also like to have a brain that would enable me to get a college degree so I could get me a fancy job.

16. Have they done a scraping, etc to find the source?
Could it be eczema? An allergen to whatever deodorant you use? If you've already covered this, I missed it.

17. Are you under heavy stress?
It seems to me stress can be at the root of many unexplained medical problems.

21. If you can't change the environment
Perhaps you can learn to deal with the stress better. Yoga is a great source of stress reduction. Excercise is another good one. Sometimes it's just a matter of finding a half hour a day, that you can devote to doing something you find relaxing.

Sometimes it's a matter of learning to look at the stressful situations in a different manner.

Learning to live in the present

Learning to let go when you have done all you can do

Learning not to stress over things out of your control.


Believe me, I have a high stress personality. Been dealing with stress and it's problems all my life. I have a better handle on it now, then when I was younger, but it's a never ending battle.

20. I am very sorry.
:(

I still want my body, I just want it to work. x(

I want to be able to walk. I want to be able to dance. And if everything else works again, I want to be 18 years old again.

27. If this thing looks like it's going to be a danger though, you better scoot
on over to the ER anyway, ok?
