Mt. Everest

So a few days ago I had a zit I swear was the size of Everest RIGHT smack in between my eyes.  Well, said zit was not just a normal pimple. I woke up with the whole area swollen huge, and even my left eye lid was puffy.  Gross, huh?

Well I went to the doctor and was prescribed Bactrim DS to get rid of it.  My MRSA has struck again. Anyone else heard of it or have it? It's similar to a really bad staph infection. The bacteria will infect open sores and basically amplify them and make them super swollen and painful. So this lovely little zit of mine went from being a normal annoyance to a zit-from-hell-on-crack.  Not a good combination. Bactrim is one of the few antibiotics that can actually treat against MRSA because others have no effect.

The worst part is once you have MRSA, you always have it.

Last time I ate an alkaline diet and drank kangen water to try and up the pH level in my body so it would be more apt to fight off the infection and bad bacteria.  It worked two years ago, so I am going to be trying it out again. Hopefully between that and the antibiotics, the MRSA will go away for a while at least.

And on a lighter note: a few of my favorites from pinterest this week!
