You'd never know from last week's posts how miserable I have been. I've been slowly turning into an alligator patch by patch. I've been trying so hard to ignore it but this poison ivy is making me crazy. I've spent a fortune in remedies. These last few from Amazon were a good investment. That soak and that gel has been a real life saver.
I also bought this special soap made with jewelweed that neutralizes the bad stuff in poison ivy. It might be too late at this advanced stage of misery but people swear by it. People make their own but I don't have any jewelweed around here. At least none that I have seen.
I wish I had it on the days I was trying so hard to make sure I was not infected by washing myself down with Dawn after every tree cleaning up session. I must have missed a few spots because I am covered with the nasty stuff. My face, my ears, my neck, my arms, legs, ankles-every day a new evil patch appears. Sleeping is impossible. Ugh.
I haven't done much in days because I am too itchy and grouchy to do more than sit in front of my laptop and yell at people on Twitter. I've become a regular troll. I have managed to keep up with my Inktober project. That I can do. Nothing itchy there. No bending over. No bumping my blister covered appendages on anything. They say it's a three week process so onto week 2 and hopefully a little relief. I'll be so happy to be back in my own skin. Sigh....
