Sleepless in Scratchville, Part 1

Posted Oct 01 2008 8:25pm
For 2 nights now, I've not been able to go to sleep until about 7 a.m. And that's *with* my Ambien. The itching is driving me mad. Want to play along at home? Go outside, find a fireant bed, and roll around in it. I hurt head to toe.

My appointment with The Scratch Test is in a few hours and then--Oh Sweet Heaven--I will be able to take my beloved Zyrtec and take Benadryl to my heart's delight. I've now been itching for more than 24 days straight. I may beg for steroids too. Hopefully tonight I will be in an antihistamine stupor and will SLEEP.

Superboy, who had a Lidocaine scratch test, said he wishes he could hold my hand during my test. He said not to cry, but if I did, we could get Slurpees afterwards. He insists it's totally for my benefit. Uh-huh.

More later.
