Tingling

Tingling

Like ant crawling on my skin. That's how I always awkwardly described to doctors how I was feeling while trying not to sound like a lunatic. I had Tingling in almost all parts of my body, even my face. The sensation is extremely annoying and lasted for days or weeks just like numbness. I'm glad I don't feel it anymore since I started being treated. My husband, who is an artist, helped me to create the image I had in mind. I asked him to paint ants on Shelby's arms, hands and fingers. He did it beautifully. Those were the spots I felt the sensation most.

How do you live your life feeling such things so weird and complex, and still present yourself to the world as if nothing was affecting you? I think I became awfully used to that strange presence on my body somehow. I learned how to live with that. And the invisible monster could be tamed in some moments.
