[This is a copy-pasted message. It took a lot of time and effort to write, as it was written while under the influence of drowse-inducing medications.] I'm alive. Not fine, but alive. The cause of the allergic reaction remains unknown, but it did not get severe enough to warrant me going to the hospital. However, my face remains swollen and red and blotchy. I managed to see my dermatologist about it this morning and he has prescribed me several different medications that should help reduce the inflammation and eliminate the rosacea. I will do my best to keep you all in the loop, but do know that it is incredibly difficult to function right now. More than usual. My face hurts. Simply talking causes a good deal of discomfort, as does eating. I have already nodded off twice while trying to write this, so I will leave things here for now. Thank you for keeping me in your thoughts and prayers -- it may not seem like it but they are greatly appreciated. Take care, all of you.
