Well, the pain monster has been striking again.The arthritis that has been bothering me these past weeks has really gone overboard in keeping me awake even when I’m very tired.
I even dreamed about taking pain pills during the time that I was asleep. It is hard to sleep when it keeps feeling like there is a white hot poker being shoved into my knee cap. Last night I got so desperate to get sleep that I had to take Aleve, Ibuprofen, and Aspirin. Of course that is also including coating my knee with muscle rub to induce heat into the joint. UG, not fun, not, not, not! I realize that I sound like I’m griping, because I am. I figure it is better to grip with the keyboard than to expose my loving husband to the gripes. He cares, and does not deserve to hear the gripes. Getting this off my chest helps. I can see the humor in dreaming about pain pills, though. The dreaming of it doesn’t help, but it does make for interesting thoughts when I wake up.
