I spent most of today resting and sleeping. I was more tired than I thought. I can't blame the heat, because it was only in the mid 80s. I know why my cellulitis is worse in the summer. The heat helps the liquid I retain make my legs swell. They don't bloat like that in the winter. This swelling stretches my bad skin, making it crack. I don't always see those cracks. Any scrape or cut in the summer is more likely to get infected. I wish I could send this bad skin back for better skin, but I guess the nonelastic quality increases as we get older. So I have to wear my compression stockings in the summer. Yuck.
