Hey, I'm actually taking care of myself for a change

On Monday morning, I noticed a dime-sized mark on my shoulder. It was a dull pinkish-red but not painful and didn't have a head, so I just attributed it as a random bruise. I bruise easily, they show up all the time without me knowing from what, so it seemed like a logical conclusion.

This morning, that spot is brighter red, warm to the touch, and has a faint red streak emanating from it, headed to my armpit. Clearly, not a bruise, lol. I figure it must be a bite (the wedding on Saturday was outside, and I wore a sleeveless dress, so I could have easily gotten bitten then), but the red, curved line bothered me a bit, so I called the nurse on the healthline of our insurance.

She wanted me to go Urgent Care within the hour, since the streak could be an infection. I can't, because I have an appointment I *have* to make this morning, but I'm going to go afterward.

I really didn't need this time suck today.
