A Day of Rest (Mostly)

Not that it was my choice, though.

See, Sam always gets up before I do. He wakes me enough to take some of my meds, like Provig­il and hydrocodone, that’ll make it eas­i­er for me to get up when they hit my system.

I have three med box­es: that first morn­ing one, one for tak­ing Ultram four times dur­ing the day, and a bed­time box.

Well, we just swapped some box­es around, and some­how I told Sam (while real­ly still asleep) to give me the wrong box. That result­ed in my tak­ing the sleep­y­time meds in the morn­ing. And yes, they do kick me on my ass.

I went through a few hours of that hor­rid “I know I should be up. I’m get­ting up. This can’t be real.” while dream­ing and being unable to move. I think the cat bounc­ing on my blad­der may have been the spell-breaker.

Need­less to say, my brain was­n’t fir­ing on all cylin­ders at any point dur­ing the day. I know I took at least two offi­cial in-the-bed naps. I was less than con­scious more than that. 

I talked to shad­owkatt on the phone (she’s off vis­it­ing fam­i­ly) at least once. I must have inter­act­ed with curiousmay9. I know sam­bear snug­gled me from time to time and made me eat.

I know that I typed a long LJ entry at some point. It’s gone, and I can’t for the life of me remem­ber what it was. The world is prob­a­bly bet­ter off with­out it.

I find the loss of the day very annoy­ing, but I also fig­ure that my body must need it.
