I have been coming to Florida every year for the past five years. Every year I forget one thing: the bugs. And every year, I have pretty bad allergic reactions. 

I woke up in the wee hours this morning because I had so many painful, itchy no-see-um bites (I'll spare you and keep those photos to myself - yuck). I actually ended up icing my legs around 3:00 AM! I've also been using Caldyphen, and the Benadryl we found this morning is even more helpful. Can somebody tell me why the bugs like my ankles so much? I have bites all over my body, but they really seem to be drawn to my ankles and the tops of my feet. 

No-see-ums are my enemy and I must block them out of my mind because they're so unpleasant. I don't think moving to Florida will ever be an option for me. Luckily, I love New England, so I don't think it'll be an issue.

I know those little pink pills far too well!! You must be sleeping well taking them though. Sorry you're so itchy!

I guess the bugs know a tasty dish when they see one. After one bite they crave more.
Oh, bug off!!!!!
