My Chloroquine Itch

So...I've had this reucurring problem that at times can be almost embarrasing(except I'm not easily embarrassed). I itch. I itch everwhere. Sometimes my itches are itchy.
I am the source of much laughter around here, especially in the evenings when the itchiness becomes very...itchy!
I was really beginning to think that I had some kind of issue...I'd checked for bed begs, tried different laundry soap, showered more often, but still itched and itched.
Then...the answer came. I was cleaning my room and happened across my chloroquine information sheet. I read through the sheet, mostly to avoid cleaning, and read about the various side effects, including nausea, diarrhea, vomiting, and other as appealing issues. Then I saw it...ITCHING. Yep, it's a side affect!! And of course, I would be the one, the only one Melinda has EVER heard of to experience this wonder!
I've decided if I ever write a book about my experiences in Haiti, I am going to call it "My Chloroquine Itch:Memoirs of Haiti".
I'm not sure if I'm gonna be able to handle this for 8 more months...we'll see. The chloroquine may have to go...
