Itchy and Scratchy
Posted February 16, 2006 at 08:06:10 AM by Bean
I've had a cold or a flu for the past three days. I Zicammed it up, but still came down with enough of a bug to make it hard for me to sleep well. So two days ago, I did what any red blooded American would do - bought some NyQuil. I decided to go with the Walgreens generic version because it was cheaper and it came with 6 doses of Day and 6 doses of Night.
Two nights ago, I popped an adult does of the Night formula and hit the sack. It helped me fall asleep fairly quickly, but about an hour later, the nightmare began. ALERT: Stop reading right here if you don't want TMI. I woke up with a terrible itch in what I will call my "nugget pouch." What do you do to an itch? You scratch it. So I did, and it felt better - for about 3 seconds. Then it came back. I went to the bathroom to check things out, but everythign appeared normal. Back to bed. Itch. Scratch. 3 seconds to try and fall asleep. Itch. Scratch. Etc. This continued for abour 5 hours. Needles to say, I didn't end up getting much quality sleep. By about 6am, the itch was gone, but it was time to get up.
Being the sleuth that I am, I thought that it might be the medicine - but I wasn't sure. So I decided to take the medicine again last night to aleviate some major coughing. It did not help the cough. It did make my pouch itch somethin' terrible.
It's 7am now, and the itch is gone. Morale of the story: Fuck a bunch of Walgreens medicine.
