So. ….That open mat I was talking about last time….After being away for over 2 months, and only getting on the mat for maybe 10 minutes…Well….I’ve got MRSA.
It’s my own fault. They clean the mats religiously there, atleast the instructors do, I don’t know how well the guys that open it up for open mat clean it, but I can say with absolute certainty that it is mostly my fault, because I did not shower afterwards.
Now before you say, “OH gross, You didn’t shower?” Well no…I ALWAYS shower after I train, but I didn’t even train…I never even broke a sweat…I just laid on the mats and did some shrimps, square drills, and stretches…really relaxed, and sat around on the mats just talking. Then I went home and didn’t even think to shower, as I had showered right before I went….And damn do I regret it… Sunday morning I noticed a nice pimple-bump on my love handle area…and by monday it was inflamed and red and horrible. I went to the doc and they drained it (gross and really painful), and gave me some Clindamycin to hopefully kill it off.
Not much of a blog. But I just wanted to point out that I have the worst luck ever.
