It is fall in Michigan. How can I tell? Not by the bright orange leaves scattering the ground. Not by the clear cool nights with loads of stars. Not by the fact that the Detroit Lions lost...again. No, no. I can tell because it is back. The red itchy rashy painful eczema that wraps my torso in a 5 inch wide band all the way around my waist. I was told as a child suffering from this affliction (ALL OVER MY BODY) that I would grow out of it. Yeah, still waiting for that. *sigh* Oh, and the burning itchy watery eyes are helpful too. I am wearing my glasses and still have to squint to read and constantly have to take off the glasses to wipe my leaky eyes with a tissue.
Fall is my favorite time of year, but it isn't very nice to me.
