…so let me tell you about it.
My doctor’s prescribed a sleep-aid for me. The prescription is for a pill every day, but he advised me to take a half-pill until I know how it will affect me. I forgot and took a whole pill before going to bed.
I work up at 4:30 (PM, I work third shift), still completely tired and now with a headache (one of the side effects of the meds.) I wanted to go back to bed more than anything in the world, but I couldn’t because Munkie! needed to be picked up from the vet.
(She was hiding from me all day Friday and most of the day Saturday, but came out to play around 8 pm or so. She loves me!)
I was taking 2 Ibuprofin every 4 hours to try and get through the pain, which faded as the day went on, but never really went away. I was super tired (maybe I should have stayed home to nap instead of going to play Mountain Witch with Tim, Len, and Clyde, but it was a fun session, so I have no regrets), and SO out of it at work. Also late for work, because I had to stop for gas and antifreeze, and the clerk took forever.
I didn’t take any medication before going to bed Saturday. I slept pretty good, but I had a card tournament to get to, so I only got 7 hours of sleep (and the tournament didn’t even happen because of poor turnout and fate conspiring against some of our regulars.) So I got to go home and nap.
I don’t have anything going on Sunday, so I’ll take a half-pill and set no alarm, and see how long that makes me sleep.
At least the pills were really cheap.
