Almost Human Again...Almost...

Maybe it's the wonderful, cool weather we have been having lately...or perhaps it's a "clear" conscience (doubtful!)...quite possibly it is the Baclofen/Advil regimen I have been taking at bedtime. Whatever the cause, I have been sleeping like a baby (whale) these past several nights and I have to say, "IT FEELS DAYUMED GOOD!" I am slowly returning to feeling almost fit for human consumption again...almost.

It is truly amazing how a little sleep can clear my thinking, my emotional body, and give some relief to my physical body as well...it has been a Godsend. The downside (I always find SOMETHING to complain about) is I have very little free "awake" time when I am sleeping a full, eight hours...because I work almost 10 hour days, most of my awake time is now spent either getting READY to go to work or AT my work. This is leaving me little time to surf the net, catch up on my blog reading, or do much of anything that would be my *normal* I-only-sleep-five-to-six-hours routine. And, usually when I am able to sleep this much, it is because I am coming down with something like a cold/flu...so, I'm always cautious to toot my sleep horn when this happens!


But, whatever...I'm just happy to be finding some rest within the Baclofen/Advil waves. My joints still ache pretty much constantly and the pain in my neck/shoulders remains, but it is MUCH easier to tolerate when I feel more rested. Who knows? I may even take a turn for the "pleasant" if this keeps up! That oughta scare the bejesus out of those that know my general cranky temperament...LOL


I'm off to bed again...wish me luck. And I hope I didn't just jinx myself...

I find that when I'm not at work I'm preparing to go to work. Everything I see, read, or do gets filed for future use at work. Never really thought of it before.

I hope you didn't jinx it either.

After everything your body has been through I'm sure it is just letting you know it wants some extra. You know how things go, you'll be back to your normal sleep soon so enjoy while you can.

a turn for the pleasant?

let's not get carried away now.

I know what you mean about sleep. I turn into a different person when I'm not sleeping well.

Take care!

I feel that your post should include a rendition from James Brown singing 'I feel Good!'

Linda, if I could, I'd sing you a lullabye... but that would be just too pleasant and you're more fun when you're cranky!

Continue resting like a baby whale, LOL, and do what your body needs to do!

We'll I'll be a stubbed toe ... guess there is rest for the wicked (ly funny)! Who'd a thunk givng UR Body a good night's sleep/rest would result in it feeling better??! Dr. SWWNBN will be preening with pride at cha when she reads your post!

The key is to get just enough sleep that you feel great, but not so much that you can't be funny any more.

Life sux, but it's great fodder for blog posts. :-P

Glad you caught a couple of winks and feel better. You deserve to catch a break.

Baclofen is a wonderful thing. I swear by it.
