I think my micro-dermal is rejecting. I’m kinda sad about it. I really like it and I’ve only had it for 4 months.
It started to reject just as I got sick, and while I thought I was taking good care of it I think my restless sleep and my cat Henry constantly jumping on my chest and stepping on it have made it unstable. I’m so bummed out about it. I really was hoping it wouldn’t reject, but as always it’s totally possible to have happen and I knew that when I got it done. I’ve been trying to keep it tracked down with a bandaid so it doesn’t get pushed up more, but I have some redness and flaking off to the right side of it that looks like it’s making the opening bigger. I don’t know that there is much more I can do except keep cleaning it with saline until it looks more ready to come out. Then I guess I’ll just make an appointment at the local tattoo parlor and get it removed before it scars too much.
It made me feel sexy. I think that’s why I liked it so much. It felt like this little wild and weird thing that I could do for self expression. Plus I had wanted one forever in this placement, so now that it’s rejecting I’m sad that the placement didn’t work out.
Oh well. Can’t win them all.
