5:28am I had a very bad night. I was I a lot of pain all night. At one point I wanted to get out of bed. Aide said it was too early. But she got me up and in my wheelchair by five. All I can say now is I’m above the dirt.
My day is not starting off very well.i have a terrific headache. My shoulders and knees hurt. In fact I hurt all over. Depression also reared it’s ugly head. I feel like a pile of dog poop.
A good cup of coffee would work wonders right now. But it is only 6:00. I must wait for relief until at least 7:00. Coffee and a good breakfast almost always bring me to life after a hellish night.
2:15pm. I had French toast casserole, scrambled eggs, hot oatmeal cereal, two cups of coffee and a glass of oj for breakfast. Breakfast and coffee didn’t phase me one bit. I fell asleep in my wheelchair until breakfast an aide came in to intake me to the shower. I had a nice hot shower and that made me feel better. But I was still tired tand groggy
They pushed me back to my room. I called Chocolatechip.Chocolatechip was going on about how she did her housework and redecorated her appointment. She is now using the backup airbed as a couch. Chocolatechip said at least now I have something to lie down on while I watch movies.
We talked a bit about buying expensive furniture. She does not see the point in buying a nice e couch only to get rid of it when it igets infected with BB. I don’t either I said. Then you would be without furniture and making payments on it She did buy furniture with her stimulus money. I said you spent yours wisely.
I talked briefly about my book. I said I did a lot of f reading last night. I’m almostished with that book Battle Cry of Freedom. I said I enjoyed the book and I thought it was well written. I am almost finished having five or six more chapters to go. Then we started talking about books in general.
Chocolatechip asked me if I ever read Old Man and the Sea by Earnest Hemingway. I said I don’t remember reading that one story but I read a few of his works. She said she had to read it out loud in class. Then they had a discussion period where each student talked about what they could get out of it. Chocolatechip said she had a hard time with this because it was college material.
I was falling asleep on the phone so we said our goodbyes. It was close to lunch time anyways. I had roast turkey, oven baked potatoes, glazed carrots, a dinner roll and applesauce for desert. Then I had my two cups of coffee and atwo fruit punches.
I was still sleepy. I wanted to read after lunch but was too tired. I slept for about an hour. I talked some more with Chocolatechip. We talk briefly because she had to get ready for an outing tomorrow. Chocolatechip had another doctor’s appointment.
I wanted to read/listen to my book. My roommate is sleeping. So I picked up my tablet and push myself to the dinning room. Think I’m going to stay here and and read.
5:57pm it seems I just cannot start reading until after school upper.i was in the dinning area until I had an accident. I pushed myself back to my room and rang the call light. I got changed right away. It was getting close to supper so I decided to stay in my room.
I talked with Chocolatechip untill 5:00. She wanted to go to bed early. I had two Philly cheese steak sandwiches, potato wedges and ambrosia for desert. I had my coffee and fruit punch. I’m finally able to concntrate because I’m awake at last. I plan on staying in my room and read
