And I ain’t getting much. All those “damn pills” I’m supposed to take have utterly disrupted any kind of rational sleep cycle. It usually works like this:
- 5am: wake up, take a pain pill
- 6am: fall asleep in front of a droning business channel, like BTV
- 7am: wake up groggy as hell
- eat something or drink something…CALORIES!
- nod off at desk
- 10am: take a pain pill
- go back to top & do it all again
The hours aren’t regular, either. Sometimes I’ll sleep for two hours at a time, sometimes for 45 minutes. The docs said they’d give me a pill to make me sleep, and all of a sudden, my life is sounding like a Rolling Stones song. I don’t know what’s more stressful — taking a pill to counteract another pill, or just gritting my teeth. I think the pain would eventually keep me from sleeping more than four hours, but still — four glorious hours of sleep is quite appealing right now.
I DO NOT LIKE THIS!
I don’t like that this has turned into a bitch-blog, either. Well, people wants to knows.
