Seriously, what's wrong with me?

I played outside as a kid. I dug in the dirt. I rolled, (literally) through wheat fields with the dog. This is what a dozen chigger bites do to me.

I haven't been able to sleep more than 2hrs at a time for a week because of the itching. I also haven't been wearing socks, shoes, or long pants. I've been sleeping with a pillow under my knees to hold my feet up in the air off the bed with no covers below my shins. Thank god it's summer and not winter. This is after the whole mess with the seed ticks. I am treating it with tea tree oil for the rash and fresh aloe for the scaly dryness. I've given up on anti-histamines and hydro cortisone creams. They don't work for me. My sinuses are cleared up though.

Greek Night is this Saturday. I hope to look more human by then.

There's a product called "stop itch". I hope you can get it over there (it's available here in Aus, not that that helps!). It's fantastic for itchy insect bites.
