Ugh. So. Like I said, I'd been getting mildly glutened by my allergy pills. So among other things, I had the celiac skin itchies, and had been using a tea tree gel to ease that. It's the one thing I hadn't yet developed a prolonged-contact allergic reaction to.
Yep. Applied it last night before bed. Erupting into massive itchy welts with stabbing pain. And guess what? Can't take the antihistamine, because it has gluten.
Long story short (too late!), I had to take nighttime cold medicine, because a) antihistamine and b) the adrenalin spike from OMG STABBY PAIN flooded the Lunesta out of my system. So I am zombified right now.

whether I manage to get a decent nap this afternoon. Evening party may get sidelined if I feel I need to be in bed at 10.
Tomorrow night = dancing at Heroes; will anyone else be there?
Sunday afternoon I have a photo shoot for a BARCC project.
