Is there a particular brand of insomnia that brings with it insane psychosomatic itching? I was rudely awakened around 2 by some jackass with whiskers and I can't get back to sleep. This is what happens every time: I roll over, snuffle happily, and as I try to slow down the breathing and think of fluffy white sheepy clouds and all that, suddenly EIGHT PARTS OF MY BODY ALL DECIDE TO ITCH AT ONCE. And it's always eight different parts, too. My kneecap is itching right now. One arm was itching a moment ago. The tip of my nose itched. The chin, good lord, the chin itches, too. And the less said about Below-The-Waist, the better. So I scratch, and I scratch all over, and I'm pretty sure tomorrow (aw, hell, it already is tomorrow) I'll find some nifty red welts and angry lines across the ol' chest, but I don't care; I'm exhausted and I just want to fucking sleep. And wake up in three hours and twelve goddamn minutes (another symptom of insomnia: OBSESSIVE MINUTE COUNTING.)
Please note that while I have not ingested any form of psychoactive chemicalia which often brings about the side effect commonly known as "robo-itch", it sure as hell feels like one of those crazy histamine reactions. Nathan, unacceptable, etc.
