(for the new readers, I had a complete mastectomy and reconstruction)

AARRRGH.

I'm sure there's a metaphor here somewhere, but at the moment the inside of the scar on my right boob itches and my thoughts trend murder-wards.  There's no way to address nerves that don't exist, and even if they did, there's no way to address the inside of your body itching (I mean, I guess if it was actually a histamine reaction, benadryl would, but sadly that's not what's happening)

I'm familiar with the post-tattoo trick of slapping itching skin, to relieve the sensation without actually picking at the scab and so I'm occasionally unthinkingly slapping my own boob, even though that does nothing but startle the cats.

It'll pass, it always does, but it's that kind of nagging itch/thought that makes it hard to do anything else with even half a brain.

So, to Porter Square Books annual pre-inventory new year's day sale I go.  I hope I can remember not to slap my boobs in public.
