Ugh. Winter is coming.

This is a little personal health update/complaint, so you may not really want to read this.

Having said that, I am about 99% sure I am allergic to winter. 

I'm not sure who I have to thank for my lovely skin conditions (but my bets are on you mom).  Since moving back north, my skin is terrible.

Every winter I get SUPER dry skin.  Everywhere.  My fingers bleed, my elbows crack, my legs get super blotchy, I itch like crazy, and I get these red bumps all over my legs.  I thought they were hives at first, but nope, just super dry skin. 

The worst part? The doctor told me showering every day is just making everything worse.  So.  I work in a smelly business (not bad smelling, just strong smelling), and I work out 3-4 days a week. I take daily showers for a reason. 

I struggle with this concept of not showering every day. 

...you may not want to get too close to me this winter.  :)

ME TOO!!!! Thanks, Mom. My hands are bleeding from three cracks as I type this (even in California I have this problem.) I shower daily anyways. I go through vats of Eucerin.
