I can’t believe I didn’t tell you.

It’s funny what you get used to. Idiosyncrasies of the body that after awhile you forget to recognize as out of the ordinary.. so that bizarre becomes your normal.  My first encounter with that occurred over my Bra Size.  I was running down a set of stairs actually holding my breasts up as I leaped down the flight because they were so huge I instinctively knew my bra was useless, and I didn’t want them to bounce up and down like two ruby reds coming straight for my eyes.  My mother, bless her heart, stood at the bottom of the railing bent over double laughing her head off.  It occurred to me only then that other women didn’t have to put up with that.  Shortly thereafter I got a Breast Reduction.

Similarly, I’ve been living with this Candida thing so long that it became my normal to wake up sneezing every morning which would then dislodge the Phlegm in my throat.  After the oh so lady-like spitting ritual I would proceed to scratch the itch, which incidentally covered every square of my body from head to toe.

I stopped sneezing and didn’t even take notice.  I’ve stopped scratching as a morning ritual too, although I intend to do the ‘lie in bed for as long as I can’ for as long as I can and then some.  Some rituals are keepers.  My cat likes that one too.
