Medication Mishaps

Get this shirt HERE!

Story of my life. I spent yesterday having missed my meds the night before. Mind you, I didn’t mean to miss them. I ended up at a friend’s too late, so I crashed in their spare room. But, because the bed was king size, different, and had few pillows, I got zero sleep. I also didn’t have my favorite trusty owl, and it didn’t smell like me. All of those combined means that I will never, ever, be able to get to sleep.

Yesterday, I coped with the migraine that not sleeping gives me, and parents who were snapping and yelling at each other all day. It’s not a good idea to startle the grumpy wolf under the blanket. That’s how people lose limbs.

All I wanted was to be left alone, so I could crawl under a blanket and disappear. However, I also didn’t want to be alone. Thus, the contradictory nature of, well, my nature. I hate days that I miss my meds. I’m angry, mouthy, annoyed and just plain not pleasant to be around. From now on, I’m going to fill an old med bottle with at least a round of one night’s worth of meds. Maybe that will help.

Thought for the Day 1st Edition

The emotion of today is tired.

I’ve been trying to come down off of soda over the last week, slowly. And it has caused my energy to drop something awful. I woke up this morning about 10:30. Went downstairs to watch TV with dad, got under a blanket, and boom it was 2 pm! I think the lack of caffeine is causing my night meds to knock me out worse than usual. I have had a hard time shaking them this week.

What am I working on right now?

Almost done with this pretty blanket. It needs one more row and more brown and pink squares. But I don’t have much left on it! I love making baby blankets. My blanket was so important to me as a child growing up, and it still is. I would love to make something for someone that chases their fears away like mine did.

Thought of the day? Dog fur sticks to anything. Velour pants are like dog fur velcro.
