It's amazing how much body hair can grow in a week.
I think the only time in my life that I've had longer armpit hair was when I first came out and noticed all the lesbians around me grew their pits.
So, I thought, "Hey! If they don't care then neither do I!"
That was short lived.
I'm not that kinda girl.
They were shaved.
I remember the performance I had and I exposed my newly shaved underarm to the club. "I shaved just for you!" I belted out between songs.
As soon as I flashed my flesh, one of my silliest friends came to the stage and licked my freshly barbered pit.
I squealed with laughter!
Today was not as monumental.
I just shaved that shit off.
But you'll be happy to know I'm less stinky now.
I can open my mouth wide enough to take pills without squirming in pain every time I tried to shove those horrid little bastards in my yak.
I was told yesterday that I wasn't drinking enough liquid or getting enough nutrition. They said I was malnourished and dehydrated.
They told me I need to be drinking orange juice, pop and any other kind of sugary liquid I can get my lips on.
This is problematic in so many ways.
I have candida. I've never really talked about it to much with 'you', my imaginary friend.
I mean really, when I started talking to 'you' about Papi being a transgender person and ...
... oh whoa is me ...
... how the fuck am I ever going to get over it?!?!
... hehehe ... silly wife ... we'll always love papi no matter what ...
How the hell would I make a segway from my love going through male transformation into, "Hey, by the way, I have candida."
Well, I guess I did today.
I don't eat sugar in my diet and I only eat one serving of fruit a day. I've always just told people I'm allergic to it, because it's easier than talking about what it really is. Not to mention the fact that too much sugar makes me a lunatic and homicidal.
But now? I'm shoving in Canada Dry Ginger Ale, Tropicana OJ, SunRype apple juice and coconut ice cream by the litre.
My body is telling me it's not impressed.
And it's not just the sugar I'm cramming in my belligerent beak. It's the fact that I had to be on antibiotics for a week.
Both of these add up to a nasty time in candida-land.
Dearest boys, if you don't know what candida is, stay in your little bubble of ignorance. You don't want to know.
Dear girls, stop squirming with the thought of a yeast infection.
Dear helpful healthy tips people, yes, I'm taking my acidophilus.
Anyway, I don't stink.
Now I just have to deal with the fact that I'm fucking hungry and have been craving bacon for two days now.
you never know how strong you really are, until being strong is the only choice you have
