The Phantom Itch

Do you ever have an itch you can't seem to scratch enough and it won't go away? It's like when you see a dog just go at it. This has been happening on and off for a few days and it's driving me nuts! This itch is where the cancer was on my left side where my breast was and in the armpit. Mind you my armpit is still numb two years later and probably always will be. I had 12 lymph nodes removed so I may never get that feeling back. I even have to use an electric razor for fear of cutting myself.

I know it's nothing to be scared of as I've seen other women post about it. It's more of just something that is annoying because I scratch and scratch and it just gets worse and won't go away. Just another thing to add to the list of what else will cancer throw my way. And even as I write that urge comes up and that spot is teasing me...come on you know you want to scratch me. Haha.
