i took another benadryl around 5 last night. took an oatmeal bath & tried to submerge as much of me as possible. short of dunking myself, i got to the base of my neck. but my head part is probaby the worse. my ears, my nose, my eyes, even my lips are painfully itchy. yes, i have blotchy cheeks right now. i'm sure i look like a beauty queen. moving on, cause i really don't mean to be such a complainer... i took another benadryl a little before 9. i wanted to make sure and sleep, i was feeling pretty itchy/miserable. whoa. i feel asleep a few minutes after 9, no joke. and i am not sure i even turned over once in the night. when my alarm woke me up this morning, it had been going off for 3 minutes. i usually wake up to the click sound of my alarm, before any noise starts. i turned that off & fell back to sleep for an hour (there would be no working out, apparently) getting up was almost dangerous. i almost fell asleep in the shower. who does that? by the time i got to school, i was more awake.
so my little asperger's kid - he often sits and stares at me. if i scrunch my nose, he'll scrunch his nose. if i wink, he'll wink. if i... ok, i think you catch my drift. well, a few minutes ago, i was making what i can only imagine an awful scrunchy/stretchy face. my lips are hurty, my inner nose is hurty, even my ears are hurty. i was trying to move things around, instead of scratching myself raw. i was concentrating quite hard, when i realized that dude watching me. i smiled. he made the same face i had been making, then smiled, too.
oh, you can't even begin to understand how much he warmed my heart. i love that kid. he's a lot of work, but so worth it.
