To the Edge of Insanity

Ok, I do realize and admit to all of you who are suffering worse things than bedbugs that being bitten by bedbugs is a small thing in light of, well, in light of almost anything.

But it does itch! It itches without stopping. Five bites across the sole of my foot. Three between my toes. Four on one finger alone. Those are the ones which bother me the most.

Last night, I gave in and just sat down and cried and cried. I had held out hope that one person might have an idea, but he didn't. So I gave in and cried.

Then I remembered our friend who is doctor who has blessed us over the years with being available to us. I picked up the phone and phoned him, and since we are traveling in the US, he picked up the phone and phoned in a prescription for me.

Ahhh! relief. Well, sort of. I still itch. But not to the point of insanity.

I just have about 10 mosquito bites so am not in quite as much agony!
Glad you have found a bit of relief!

I hope you're not still in the bedbug situation, just dealing with the original. Sounds like hell!
