As I lay awake in bed due to the extreme itch from poison ivy, besides the fact that I'm po'd at myself for getting it YET again, my mind is
wandering. So, at 5 am, here I sit at my pc waiting for some relief from the creme the dr. gave me.
I wondered how much of the population was immune to poison ivy? If you are one of those people, you should thank your lucky stars!
1. If a a team of medical researchers needed volunteers to research poison ivy and you could earn $ 200 for your participation (meaning you'd have
to get poison ivy) and you were broke, would you do it for $200? How much money, if any at all, would it take?
2. I wondered if poison ivy was ever used as a torture technique? I can't imagine having a raging case of poison ivy, and having my hands bound not
being able to scratch. I think I would go insane.
I scrubbed up with the Zanfel before I put on long sleeves, long pants, socks shoes and even gloves. I took all off immediately afterward and used
the Zanfel again, and showered and scrubbed with 3 kinds of soap. Later that evening as I sat watching some tv, I started to feel the itch and
thought OH NO! I put on the creme the Dr. gave me immediately and took a benadryl. Thought I nipped it in the bud.
It's not a bad case. Only around my ankles, and oddly enough, it only itches the second I lay my head down to go to sleep.
I know I won't win this war against this crap in my yard, but it really makes me mad that it seems I'm getting more sensitive to poison ivy and
it's a war I don't think I want to fight anymore.
