For the first time in two weeks I finally got seven hours of uninterrupted sleep.
I took one of my last pain pills at nine, went to bed at ten and woke up at five.
I slept hard too.
I woke up, got up, took a leak, threw a coat on and stepped out on the front porch in my skivvies and had a half a smoke and then tried to go back to sleep.
The gut pain started back in and the back muscle on the left side that has been spazzing out every night for over a week started hurting a little bit so it took me a while but I finally manged to nod back off and I just now woke up again a little after eight.
I got back up, made a pot of coffee and then took a cup outside for my morning ritual.
I’m sure there are a thousand and one things I could hoist my narrow ass out of this recliner to start doing something about but since I know I am going to have to work the next six days in a row I have decided to take a double dose of FUCKITOL and lay around like a useless lump all day instead.
It has been a very long, painful and frustrating last three weeks in a row and I could use a break from the insanity.
That ugly rash that started out as a red blotch a couple of inches long on my left side has now spread from my belly button all the way around my left side to about an inch away from my spine, two inches wide.
Parts of it are showing some decent healing finally and if I can get those back spasms to let up for a while I will call it a day of rest well spent.
