holy fucking scratch. itch. scratch.

it’s either one or the other. i swear it’s a vicious cycle. like a lot of these things kind of are. but my skin is so fucking dry and i don’t know if it’s the cheap long underwear or a certain lotion i used or what … but my skin itches. so i scratch it. which makes it itch more and so i scratch it ….

and you get the picture. i had this weird stuff go on right before a conference i went to last summer and i think a lot of the stuff i was itchy about then was stress related, but i think i’m making this a whole lot worse by continuing to scratch it. and i think i’m actually causing it to maybe get more rash-y or something as i continue to scratch and then put lotion on thinking that’s the problem or something.

i need to take a shower and hope that will help (get the lotion off), but i sort of will want to put lotion on afterward (so i am not all flaky and dry = itchy). i’m at a loss. i’m getting a ride to where i’m going tomorrow, so maybe i won’t have to wear a thousand pieces of clothing (and it’s not supposed to be -10, either). blah. i DO have to get up at a ridiculous hour for me … much earlier than i even get up for work. oh, sobriety. you’re so ridiculous sometimes.

maybe this will set off a chain reaction of good sleep hygiene. that would be fabulous. anyway, i have to ignore this itching and figure out what i’m wearing tomorrow and blah blah.

p.s. i have an english pen pal now. YAY!
