Pityriasis Rosea and Picnics

So…to add to the long list of things that are wrong with me, I developed pityriasis rosea awhile ago. Yeah, don’t google it because it is gross. Trust me on this one. Luckily the really bad parts of my body are covered up so no one really knows I’m suffering from this skin disease unless I tell them. So what is pityriasis rosea?

Pityriasis rosea is a common skin disease. It appears as a rash that can last from several weeks to several months. The way the rash looks may differ from person to person. It most often develops in the spring and the fall, and seems to favor adolescents and young adults.

There is one shining light in all of this…at least this disease still considers me a young adult! :P

It’s not contagious luckily and it is usually not itchy which it wasn’t at first but in the past couple of weeks…o m g. so itchy. So if you see me scratching myself a lot it’s the pityriasis rosea! :(

I was researching online and I started reading that there is no known cure for pityriasis rosea (it will just go away on it’s own over time) but that suntanning will help! I’m stuck indoors all day during the week working so I haven’t been getting much sun at all but I am going to make a conscious effort to spend some time outdoors this weekend. This of course led me to plan for my first picnic of the year!!! I looooove picnics so I can’t wait. My sister gave me a picnic blanket and an awesome picnic basket as part of my bridal shower present last year and this will be my first chance to use it!

On the menu:

mini roasted red pepper and goat cheese sandwiches (using lee’s bread of course!)
assorted crackers (we have so many boxes of crackers left over from all of our parties)
some kind of cheese (haven’t decided which one yet) and salami
olive hummus (boyrobot loves this stuff!)
assorted fresh fruits

the picnic basket even comes with glasses! so we’ll be bring a bottle of the 5-star rated italian soda from world market (love this stuff!!)

we’ll be near the pier at huntington beach…you know….the part that’s all grassy! if you’d like to join us

sun + fun + relaxin.
