When the doctor saw how good my numbers were from the labs, he gave me a flu shot. This is the third time I have received a flu shot. The first two times I never had an effects from the shot.
This time however I'm feeling the few symptoms the last few days. Slightly feverish, a slight cough, but the worst part is a slight case of night sweats. I have been waking up like every hour slightly wet from sweating.
I know my body will fight this off but if it gets worse I'm going to the doctor. If it's a real cold it could be devastating.
Breast Cancer Awareness Month
All of you know "The Boss" took me to the aquarium for my birthday. We had an amazing time and the aquarium is one of my favorite places on the central coast.
We didn't have many clients on my birthday. What did we do all day? Well he did a drag show this weekend so I spent most of the day in his chair with drag queen wigs on my head for him to style. I wished I had my camera for there were some great Kodak moments.
Happy Birthday To Me
It's my birthday today. Anyone who want's to kick Ooops I mean kiss my ass can. Today I am working and tonight my friend Jules is making me dinner.
Jaws Jr. and I'm Pissed
Yesterday the boss took me to the Monterey Bay Aquarium to see the baby great white shark for my birthday. We had a great time together and I was going to put the video on this blog but something pissed me off. If you want to see the video you can click here to my blog on myspace and see the male baby great white shark.
This morning I looked at my You Tube account. There was a message from a radio station saying that the were going to use an audio bite from one of my video clips about the L. A. Gay and Lesbian campaigns "Aids the Gay Disease, Own It, Stop It!"
I was so excited when I herd that my work doing HIV/AIDS education was going to be broadcast. After listening to the pod cast I'm pissed. The announcer said "I'm am dying from this disease!!" The sound bite they used made me sound like I was on my death bed.
Guess what people, I'm not on my death bed and not dying from HIV/AIDS yet. I am a fighter and will keep fighting this disease with all my might.
Yes some national recognition would be great if the context is correct. This announcer used the sound bite out of context. I'm not a happy camper right now. What I will do is keep putting the word out about HIV/AIDS but will cover my ass more closely.
OMG What A Week
Trichotillomania Awareness Week
From October 1st to October 8th is trichotillomania awareness week. All of you may ask what is trichotillomania? Trichotillomania is someone who compulsively pulls out hair.
They can pull out their hair from on top of their head. They also pull out their eye lashes and eye brow hair. They will pull out other peoples body hair. They can also pull out the fur of pets.
School teachers will have at least one student in their career who will have trichotillomania. How does this happened? Well do you remember when you were in science class and ask to pull out a hair from your head to look under a microscope?
Most of us said "Ouch that hurt," but someone in that that class said to themselves "Hmm that was kind of different and felt good." So they kept on pulling. For some people pulling is better then sex so I've herd!!
I'll admit I never herd of trichotillomania till I started working for my boss. To my surprise the National Trichotillomania Learning Center is located here in Santa Cruz.
My boss and deal with these clients sometimes at work. We do not try to cure them for their is no cure for trichotillomania. We just try to offer them some type of solution to their hair pulling problems so they can try to have a normal life.
