Painful Weekend; Painful Monday
I didn’t do so well this weekend. I was okay Friday night…oh..no wait..I fell asleep at 7 on the couch. I woke up at 1100 when the guys got home from swimming lessons and made it to two grocery stores before returning home and dropping immediately onto the couch. My face hurt so much I begged D to massage it and he did an amazing job on my shoulders, neck and then all around my face and skull. My jaw joint hurts all the time but it’s the strange bits that are so taxing. Behind my ears is a particularly bad spot..forehead, temples, cheeks…D said he’d never seen so much tension in someone’s face/head before. The massage hurt, a lot, but when he let go there was some relief. Of course, I passed out shortly afterwards (5:00 pm ish) and although D dragged me to my feet a few times trying to wake me, I was unable to wake up and slept until noon on Sunday. I managed to get up and get a few loads of laundry done and then it was back on the couch and out by 9:00.
**Someone please explain how I could possibly still be tired?!** I’m sitting here in my office desperately trying not to fall asleep at my desk. Vision is blurring and I’m sweating, overheating…the pain meds worked for about an hour today and now I’m facing the decision to either take more meds and risk spacing out or suffer through this for a few more hours first. I’m not really able to concentrate on work in this state.
I ate a banana and had a can of Pepsi hoping for a miracle but now I just feel nauseous and pass-out exhausted. Plus the pain. So tired.
Uhmmmm so yeah. That’s me today folks. As the minutes tick by I’m one moment closer to my bed again. That makes me happy. (What is it about work that does this to me? It must be the heat? It’s very hot in this place…we’re heated by steam so it’s a damp heat as well.) I think I’ll open a window, walk down the halls for a few minutes, have a few more meds. See if I can’t turn this day around.
