More ivy

Well, even after the Zanfel treatment I woke up in the middle of the night ready to jump out of my skin. I got a little relief with another hot shower and Zanfel scrub at 0330, but decided that it was time to stop self-medicating and call the doctor.

This morning I went to the doc and got a steroid shot and prescription for the Methylprednisone Dosepak, which is a six-day regimen of pills.

Aside from missing a day of work this especially sucks because I was enrolled in a company-sponsored CCNA prep class. Now it looks like I'll have to enroll in the next session.
