Anyway, so, half asleep, I stick my hand under the strap and start scratching. I didn't think I was scratching *that* hard. The chin is the worse due to that &$%^ seam. I go from there down my jaw line. I get to below my ear and that's when it happens. I actually rip a mole half off. It doesn't really hurt but the sound and sensation wakes me up the rest of the way!
We set an alarm for the minute my doc office opens and I get an appt to have it checked. And yes, I really did rip it almost completely off. While I am there, I have her remove another one that sits just below where the glasses sit at my temple.
She (the doc) says it isn't uncommon for folks to scratch a mole like that. She wanted to tell me stories about it but it just grossed me out too much. I left with two huge bandages on my face because the two wounds wouldn't stop bleeding. Funny how the one I ripped didn't bleed much at all but did like crazy when she removed it.
