A big thank you to my sister for coming to my rescue. After reading yesterday's post, she immediately phoned me to answer my call for help. "I know you don't want to leave the house, but you need to go get some Benadryl," She said, kicking my ass into gear, and launching me down the road to junky-town.
I had never used Benadryl before. Wow! Dat shit's da bomb! I popped two tablets when I got home and I was asleep in an hour. The itchiness wasn't completely gone, but the cold pack took care of the rest.
I followed the same routine in the evening, and slept like a baby all night.
Today I'm back at work. The Benadryl is gone from my system and I'm still a bit itchy (no – not from withdrawals – smart ass) – but it's definitely better than it was yesterday. Still, I'm looking froward to my next hit of Benadryl tonight!
