Hi....I was told my my tattooist that some people have unbelievably sensitive skin, and I'm in that category. I do have to go back for a touch-up on my newest one on my leg, but frustratingly, that one took much longer to heal.
I have to accept I'm done with tattoos....probably a good thing. But I don't work in a field where any people will discriminate against me for having them...so that's a good thing.
Of course, the other thing regarding tattoos...just imagine how they'll be when you get old...and my response is..who says I'll get old?
I have remembrances for each of them and it's nice to put my internal thoughts outward....they don't agree with everyone's taste, but that's OK.
One thing I am concerned about
is that I've gotten more since my last liver MRI...since I do have UC-related liver disease, I don't know how they will be affected by my next MRI. I guess I don't need one unless I have problems...so won't worry about
it till then,
*Heather* Status: flaring...Asacol 3 twice daily; Salofalk enemas nightly
~diagnosed January 1989 UC (proctosigmoiditis)
~UC meds: Asacol (3 @ 2x daily); Salofalk enemas nightly for flares & taper to maintenance
~Bentylol (dicyclomine) 20mg as needed; Ranitidine (reflux); Effexor XR 75mg(depression); Pulmicort/Airomir (asthma)
~vitamins/minerals/supplements; Probiotics....(RenewLife Ultimate Flora Critical Care + Primadophilus Reuteri). @ bedtime
~various digestive enzymes as needed
~URSO for PSC (or PBC) 500mg X 2 daily (LFTs back to NORMAL!!)
My doc's logic.. "TREAT (FROM)BOTH ENDS" worth it !!!
