La la la!  
My mum has hurt knee, so she hasn't been able to get to the basement do laundry (she is very OCD passionate about laundry), so my dad has been doing it. My dad doesn't know about the Fabric Softener Rules, which are that you use the plain, unscented fabric softener and never anything with a scent. So my dad bought different fabric softener, and today I got dressed to go take the dog for a walk. I was slightly itchy when I left, and by the time I got home, I was literally tearing my clothes off. I am allergic to scents in things I put on my skin.

My mum reacted like I'd been exposed to radiation and started cataloging the clothes that been washed in the wrong fabric softener and isolating them and sending me to have an oatmeal bath. Oatmeal baths are brilliant, by way.

I had to take Benedryll to soothe down the itching and now I am somewhat spaced out. I just went to get yogurt from the fridge and got the milk instead. Then my brain decided milk=cereal so I poured myself some cereal, before realizing I didn't want cereal at all.

I am going to bed now. I hope I have clothes in the morning.

Oh no! I know what that's like. My favorite shower gel makes me itchy if I let it stay on my skin for too long. It's a bit masochistic that I keep using it. Um. Yeah. ^_^'

I'm a big fan of unscented clothes detergents/fabric softeners/etc. Wonderful, non-itch-inducing things, those. *nods-nods*

I can only use very, very specific products. The same soap. The same shampoo. The same toothpaste. No bubble bath, no bath soak, no bath bombs. My skin is very sensitive. Just like the rest of me! :D

After reading through other comments you left on this post, I have to say:

Hush, you're not annoying. You're a delight. *pets*

I like your mom's approach here. I hope you have non-itchy clothes.

Dare I inquire as to the degree of guilt your father feels?
The Writer They Call Tay: RJ: Juliette balconawanderingbard on March 19th, 2013 02:40 pm (UTC)
Probably about as much as I feel for being such a bloody nuisance. I have many and varied allergies and I imagine living with me is very tedious in that respect. No soy, no artificial colour, no walnuts, no tomatoes, no MSG, no perfume. I find myself annoying, I can't imagine what it must be like for him!

Oh, no! I'm so sorry and hope you will be better and have clean clothes in the morning. At least your dad will know for next time!
