errands, coffee, and errands

Errands, coffee and more errands

I woke up feeling better, though I didn’t have a good sleep. I woke up several times during the night. I woke up around 0600 and figured I might as well take a shower while my pain levels were low. I took a little nap and then made breakfast. My mother was home so I had breakfast with her. I then went to the bank to have cash for the weekend. My prescriptions were ready so after the bank, I went and picked it up. It was across the street from the bank so I didn’t have to travel far.

I came home and decided to take a nap. I was in pain but not as bad as it was yesterday. I took my meds and snoozed. When I woke up I called my PCP’s office to see if my prescription was ready to be picked up. It wasn’t so I decided to go to Starbucks and wait for the call as I needed my meds.

I got on the new bus that was powered by hydrogen. It was cool and a lot quieter than the hybrid buses. I got to Starbucks and just had espresso. I did some writing. I wasn’t in the mood for reading so I just wrote in my journal. About an hour later, I got the call from my PCP’s office that my prescription was ready to be picked up. I wrote a little more to finish my espresso and then left to go to my PCP’s office.

I got the prescription and then went to Walgreens. While I was waiting, I decided to read the CBT book on preventing suicide attempts. The wait was supposed to be 15-20 minutes. I was there for almost a fricken hour. I was not happy. I had to pee and my foot was starting to act up. Damn pharmacist was new and didn’t call my name when he finished filling it. Asshole. My mother had called me while I was waiting to tell me dinner was ready. I told her I was at Walgreens and would be home soon. She kept dinner in the oven until I came home.

I came home, ate and used the bathroom. I leaked so had to change my underwear. I knew I would as I waited so long at Walgreens. I am really tired and now I don’t have to do a damn thing except read. My new software came in so I will load it on my laptop sometime this weekend. I will watch a movie to try it out.

I need to mail back my new Bluetooth headset because they were really staticky today and it was pissing me off. I restarted my phone, thinking it was the phone but it wasn’t. I’ll try and mail it out tomorrow or Monday. I’ll have to use my “old” headset. I feel like making a coffee. I am just so drained. It’s too early to take my night meds.

Weird that it was warm outside but my room is cold. Course I am just wearing a t-shirt and underwear. I haven’t had the energy to put my PJs on. My foot is really starting to act up. I hope I am not going to have another night of bad pain. Maybe I will make a cup of tea so I can make it through the next few hours. I know I am risking being up most of the night if I do, but I don’t want to nap because that will fuck up my sleep more. Catch 22.

    I hope you get a good nights sleep! I’d be pissed if I was waiting a whole hour at the pharmacy too. xo
