Have you ever noticed how many things are worse, or at least seem worse, at night. It you have a cold, it is always worse at night. It you are sad, it is worse at night. It you are afraid of the dark, it is worse at night.


The same has gone for my poison ivy. It has always been the worst at night. Last night it was so bad, after half an hour of lying there in pain, very much pain, the chances of sleep were dwindling into the single digits. My left arm was on fire.

So I got up and walked around. Weird, I know, but it helped. Like I hinted at, I am terrified of the dark, so walking around at night is really, really not something I am big on, but this helped. I wandered outside. Being outside at 10:00 PM isn't one of my habits either, but we live in the country and have a nice deck, so is not so strange. It was cold outside but not too cold, and the stars, oh the stars were so amazing. It wasn't the most spectacular night sky I'd ever seen, but it was certainly glorious. It wasn't very dark outside, or very quiet , but it was nice. It was so wonderful.

Take care.
