    I'm so proud of myself. Only took me almost 2 years to get here. :o

    In slightly worse news, I've got what seems to be ringworm on my neck from squatting with a dirty barbell. :hs:

    Good stuff...I seem to be stuck at 295 :hs:. As for the ringworm thing, I got a really nasty case of it on the back of my left hand from highschool gym...I'm a fucking germophobe in the gym now. Every now and then it'll flare up just a little and I'll see red specs :mad:

    Good job, its always nice to get PRs

    315 has always been a mental block for me. I think in a week or two I should be able to lift it easy though. :x:

    How did it start for you? I forget when it first showed up, and right now it still looks like it might just be poison ivy. In the 2 weeks I've noticed it, it hasn't gotten any worse than it seemed to on around the second or third day, so I'm holding out on it not being a nasty ass fungal infection.

    You just got me to do some research.

    At this point it's somewhat possible I've got beginning septicemia. :mad:

    Scheduling a Dr. appt now.

    I had a pilonidal cyst surgically removed back in May, but ~1 week ago, it flared back up. Mine was shown to be a primarily staph infected cyst.

    That was around the time this rash showed up, which, as I've seen, doesn't seem to be ringworm or impetigo, but DOES show similarities to staph infections.

    Couple that with my 90 or so BPM resting heart rate, and the fact that it's not inconceivable the cyst could get bacteria into my bloodstream, and I'm definitely not fucking around with this.

    Good news is it shouldn't be methicillin resistant, as I was on similar antibiotics before for the cyst and they took that shit out. :o

    I can do 315 by 2. It's really hard and it kills my right knee. I find that in the heavier weights I tend to use my back to pull that shit up. It's horrible I know:hs:

    Pink, circular thing started to form on my hand. Each day it got a little bigger and a little redder. Eventually ended up the size of a half-dollar and was a pretty dark shade of red...looked nasty.

    Definitely not that. I think it actually went down a little today, which offsets my back being sore as a MOTHERFUCKER today. :o
