I just finished Almodovar’s “Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown,” from 1988. He is such a genius!! If you haven’t seen one of his movies yet you need to PRONTO! I suggest “Volver,” “Women on the Verge…,” or “All About My Mother.”

I often feel it on another part of my body. For example, at this moment I am scratching between my toes and I can feel it on my stomach. When I scratch my hipbone I can feel it on my shoulder. It’s always the same pairing of body parts. Does this happen to anyone else? Do you know what causes it?
If this is my super power I totally got ripped off.
