Slept well without the help of Benadryl. I ran out. Will go buy some today. I had a dream that I took some - so maybe that helped :mrgreen: ?
Do you regularly take Benadryl to help you sleep, or is it to help with itching & allergies?

I used to take Benadryl to help me sleep, but lately have switched to Melatonin... I get way better sleep than with Benadryl.
mostly for the itching. Didn't take any last night and didn't itch much either. I've been trying different things. I usually use a scrubbie towel type thing when I bathe. Last night I just used the soap and no scrubbie. Didn't itch. Maybe I am irritating my skin? But then my sister asked about the Benadryl, cuz she has also been all itchy. Mystery that needs to be solved....

Clem I had to stop using the scrubbies because they made me itch. I had some that came with some bath soap and I thought they would be nice but they irritated my skin and made me itch. The bath soap alone did not. Janet Alliesmama

Hello friends,

So much has been crammed in my days since yesterday morning that I feel like weeks have passed... or maybe its just because I feel soooo tired.

Yesterday morning I was all set to go subbing -- morning at high school and afternoon at my kids' elementary... then I discovered my basement boys' room carpet was sopping wet, then I went next door to my laundry room ans discovered a 6-inch-thick layer of clothing, bedding, etc being sodden as well. So I was trying to quickly sort through clothes for the 20-ish minutes I had until I needed to leave to take dd5 to daycare... as I was doing this, I managed to dislocate my left shoulder.

*sigh*
Gayle I am so sorry to hear what you are dealing with. sending prayers and gentle ((hugs)) Janet Alliesmama
Thank you Janet.
