Okay, well the little rock you see on my fingertip (yeah I know the picture is fuzzy and not too close up, I'm using my cell phone) is something I found beneath my skin. I had noticed a bluish purplish mark on my body and decided to investigate. Yes, I cut into my skin to find out what the heck this was because I knew it wasn't a bruise. And I found this tiny little hard stone and proceeded to take it out. I called my mom because this was just so strange to me, and I wasn't sure if this was okay. My family advised me to see a doctor, so that's exactly what I did. The doctor immediately knew what it was, phew. What this is, is a build up of dead skin that had collected in one of my pores. She says it's similar to what a blackhead is, but this is found on the body and is quite common. I had never heard of something like this. Sorry if this kinda weirds anyone out, but I thought I'd share. I was a little (just a tiny bit) nervous about this being something that could be serious, and even moreso something expensive. I kept thinking, "Oh no, what if I have to cancel my surgery?!?". That would have been horrible, lol. What a relief!
