A cool wind blew my way. Lightning split the sky, and water fell to the ground!!! It rained! We slept with window open last night. I could smell the clean smell of rain meeting dry dirt. I thought I would sleep through the night.
I didn't. I continue to itch. When the itching subsides, after the application of Benadryl, my mind decides to entertain me with thoughts of doom and gloom. The night becomes a vicious cycle. I awake to itching, slather on the Benadryl gel, then lay there willing my mind to shut down.
I dragged my unwilling self from the bed this morning to take the canines I love out for a potty break. I was careful to look at my surrounding through half-open eyes to hang on to a thread of sleep, hoping to crawl back into the bed. We did and I dozed for a bit before getting up to start the day. This has been going on for weeks. Making me somewhat less than pleasant to be around.
The current outbreak of this insidious ailment is on my eyelids and neck. My torso has calmed down from the outbreak last week. He who loves me asked if I was absolutely certain I had not come into contact with any poison vines .......... I am quite certain that I did not come into direct or even indirect contact, as the outbreak was under my foundation garments. He does try to help, but that question was just annoying. Like I ran naked through some poison ivy and maybe rolled around in it.
I am sleep deprived, tired, irritable and just plain cranky. Not at all nice to be around. He who obtained hearing aids can now hear me mutter to myself about my lot in life.
Green To Clean finally sent the replacement chemicals for the miracle it says it will perform on our green pool. We bought more chlorine and shock and have been diligently back washing and vacuuming the pool bottom, but it is still green. I am not optimistic.
So, you may be asking yourself why I am sharing my misery with you. I have no idea. Misery loves company?
