I now have the virus.
Turns out its foot and mouth disease. I probably contracted it when the boyfriend stayed over the day he picked me up from the airport. He wasn’t showing any symptoms and had no idea he could even be sick.
Stay tuned for updates on the shit I put on my skin to make the itching stop.
Plus sides of this, we’re both sick now so we can see each other, and I can take some time to further declutter or minimize.
