    I’ve been robbed and I was the first one to discover the apartment after, I know exactly how you feel. Luckily I was about to move anyway when it happened because I don’t think I could have stayed there :( It was odd because i usually work from home and the one day I was gone it happened..but someone told me that means the person who did it was probably a neighbor who was watching and knew I wasn’t home. Creepy!!

      Talking about your problems makes you seem like a regular person. I can definitely relate! It’s a rough patch. We’ll get through our problems and be even better!!

        As an older mom who’s seen/dealt with a lot of different medical conditions I just want to comment a bit & hope it helps. Your eyes very well could have gotten infected (possibly from sand/water) & even your scalp for that matter. With all the stress auto-immune conditions could kick in as well if not cause. Dr’s unfortunately are not the wizards we think they are and diagnosis comes through a process of elimination. Blood panel and what is checked is a good start. Keep in mind our medical system will only allow your dr to check what your symptoms may indicate. Agree prescribing a medication to placate patients that was developed for one thing but a side effect is it works on other things is a huge turnoff. I usually refuse unless it’s absolutely necessary. I can’t tell you how many times fatigue,depression & anxiety were diagnosed when it turned out I had-hypo thyroid/Sjogroens disease/hiatus hernia and stomach ulcers. Be your own advocate! Keep copies of your medical tests in case you change or see a different dr. When you have your bloodwork done tell them you want to sign up for myehealth - you’ll be able to view your own tests results online as soon as they’re done! You must do this the first time at the lab before you leave. Lastly buy a ring video doorbell camera! They’re about $200 get one for the front & back of your house they are amazing! Also have someone check on your place/ change light configurations leave a radio on etc while you’re away. Sorry I so just wanted to help if at all possible. Wishing you a speedy recovery🙏🏼❤️

          I had the same thing on my lip, same place. I had to get it surgically removed. It wasn’t bad, the stitches are a bit annoying because it is in an awkward place, but so worth it because the bump gets super annoying

            I'm so sorry all of these stuff happened to you, Melissa. I really wish there's something we could do to help you because it's one thing to have health issues and another thing to come back home realizing you got robbed. You just need to surround yourself with family and friends who would always support you, especially emotional support. It's okay, Melissa. This was just an unfortunate event. Just remember, it's okay. This shall pass. And most importantly, everyone is safe. And I'm sure you'll recover from bad skin issues, sooner or later. I know some people who have skin issues ever since they were a baby, having redness/rash everyday of their lives and they just learn to be okay with it and live a healthy lifestyle. You'll be fine, don't worry. Much love.. 💕

I truly hope all of your problems will go away asap, we love you!

                      My husband had a similar thing happen on his lip a few months ago. It turns out it was a blocked saliva gland. He kept biting it too and it made it worse. He had to have a little procedure to have it removed. Maybe mention that to your dentist and he’ll send you to dental surgeon. 😘😘

                                  Just a recommendation I was told once, don't notify people of when you're not at your house aka vacation, Instagram live when you're shopping, etc.

                                          Check out ‘the orange cream’ on insta for your skin issues. I know people who have used it and it’s worked so well for them

                                            Hey Melissa, I know it sounds kind of awful, but a house sitter might help. Yes it’s a bit of a hassle to find someone you trust, but if they could check the house every day or stay over, it may really help. Someone who can leave a light or tv on and switch them every day. Or leave their vehicle in the drive. Just something. An alarm system would really help, too. And then you can just make your mom or someone close to you one of the top five contacts if it goes off.

                                              Oh my god! That’s so crazy. Hopefully the worst is over. That’s super shitty that so many bad things happened at once and also crazy your still positive and moving forward trying to figure it out because I’d be in a ball crying.

                                                Was there some sort of trauma or sore that lead to the lump on your lip? I have an autoimmune disease and often get bad canker sores/ulcers. I had a similar looking lump on my upper lip that came from a bad ulcer that didn’t heal properly. I ended up with a granuloma on my lip (basically an overgrowth of tissue following trauma-probably also a result of my overactive immune system). I was prescribed a topical steroid which took a few weeks, but eventually got rid of it. Still a tiny scar there, but not noticeable at all anymore.

                                                  I had a bump in the exact same spot on the inside of my lip as well this past January; my doctor thought it was just a canker sore and since it kept rubbing against my teeth it would take a while to go away. About a month after I got it it left naturally, and hasn’t return since

                                                    Hi melissa, thank you for sharing and opening up. I hope things get better for you, and maybe getting a ring doorbell on the outside of your door would make you feel safer. It surely helped me feel safe and intruders see it and walk away cause they know they are being recorded.

                                                    Also, I too have imbalanced hormones causing me to have 2 periods a month😩 so mines is the opposite but your right, they recommend me birth control, I declined because I will heal the natural way. Also try not to stress because that only makes your skin and hormonal imbalance worse.

                                                    I think you should take a week off too yourself to focus on your health. Just lay on the couch , warch good movies ,eat and sleep. Literally for a week. Lol. No stress factors.

                                                    Here are how Google says to balance your hormones .

                                                    Also if doctors can no longer help, try a naturopathy doctor.

                                                    Sidenote: maybe a planet is in retrograde cause I'm having a terrible month as weel with health issues. But stay strong, it will get better ❤❤❤

                                                        Seems like your skin may be reacting to stress! And remember less is more on your skin. All natural products but don’t put too much on especially around your eyes.

                                                            Hi, don't know if someone has suggested this already but you should consider finding a functional medical doctor. They focus on root causes versus symptom managing/masking! Also, you should get tested for parasites and heavy metal toxins...both can be in the body for years and they cause skin issues, among other things. Good luck!

                                                              I honestly love rant videos like this because it makes you real and relatable. I get so tired of youtubers that make their life seem so perfect and only show the positive stuff all the time, because it’s not real, everyone has hard times. This video makes me feel better about not having my life completely together either and it’s nice to know I can relate to someone that I look up to. Thank you for this video love you girl and hope things get better for you soon ❤️

I am sorry this happened to you...I live in the same area as you and see you but am often too shy to say hello. That area has had a few break ins...I hope dealing with insurance is not too difficult. <3 sending love!

All the candles, yoga, smoothie bowls, sleep ins and cups of tea! Also if you are feeling more stress I would recommend a weighted blanket, burning lavender oil and acupuncture 💓

I’ve had someone try and break in my house while I was home alone with my dogs and I freaked out. Like I didn’t know whether to grab my phone or the baseball bat. Talk about fight or flight. It’s a scary feeling.
