As I said yesterday, while I'm wired up, I can't shower. While I, basically, shower every night before going to sleep, there are times when I don't, for one reason or another. I'm not necessarily okay with that, but I can make it through the day after not showering with little thought about it. A swipe with a washcloth and a tie to put my hair up and I'm good to go for the day. For some reason, this is NOT working for me right now.
To begin with, I can feel my skin 'crawling' underneath every one of the patches that are in place. Is this my imagination or is my skin REALLY that itchy? It could very well be mind-over-matter. But, that isn't the only itching problem--I seem to have the 'creeping crude' right now and every place I scratch just moves the itch a couple of inches further away. I can't seem to stop the itchiness--and, again, I don't know if this is all in my mind or not. I just feel as if there is a layer of 'stuff' that I don't want on my skin and scalp--and it itches.
I get to have these patches removed about 2:00 PM tomorrow and I'm pretty sure I will be in the shower by 3:00--and I can't wait! FYI: You don't EVER want a shower more than when you CAN'T shower.
