Here's photographic proof. And one thing I didn't really understand when I researched this was what was causing the pain. That red rash hurts...yes...but the worst pain is in the muscles and deeper than that rash. Like under the skin all around my torso is tight and pinched...like all the nerves need to adjust but keep getting caught on each other. Which is essentially exactly what's happening.
Now I should probably try to get some sleep. Husband has to get up before 5 tomorrow so I'm going to end up waking up early too.
