Yeah, I haven’t been online much at all lately. Two storms in a row made internet connectivity a bitch (wind, then ice), and this morning Time Warner finally came out to swap out some equipment. In theory, this places me back online. Except.
There’s always an except.
To help control pain, I use something called lidoderm patches. They’re basically glue and lidocaine, topical patches. They work really well to control surface neuropathy. Perfect, right? Well. Sort of. The problem with the lidoderm is that some people? Have allergic reactions if you wear it too long.
Some people like me.
I’ve taken benadryl, and am going to see if I have any cream that will help. If not, I think I’ll paste up some benadryl as a topical. Sigh.
In the meantime, typing hurts like you wouldn’t believe – both from the neuropathy, and also from the allergic reaction. I’m going to curl up in bed and whimper some more, like the broken doll I am.
