Doing whatever it takes to drown out the noise
My foot/ankle flared up about an hour and a half ago. I can’t sleep. I just am in pain for the second night in a row and I don’t like it. I’m not suicidal or even thinking about suicide but I don’t want to be here right now. If I could snap my fingers to die, I would do it.
I am listening to Luke Combs, “One Number Away”. I love this song. I found an acoustic version of it on YouTube and OMG it is so awesome. I need to see this guy in concert. He is phenomenal. I am listening to this song on repeat because it’s going through my head.
I opened my former therapist’s statement. I am no longer being charged $525/month. But the final balance is over $16K. No way I owe that much and I am not paying her anything until the balance is more reasonable. I was able to sort out the problem with my credit card not issuing me a new card in my new name. I should have it in a few days.
I wish I had some crown. I miss having some whiskey. I may get it my next pay period. I do have honey whiskey but it goes down so smooth that I could finish the bottle without intending to, and that would be a bad thing, especially because I am on pain meds. But a shot or two shouldn’t do anything for me. I just have to be careful to spread out the pain meds or not take them.
I started a new book when I came home. It’s by Neil Gaiman called Coraline. I was going to read his book, The Ocean at the end of the Lane but Coraline seemed to be a better choice. I like books that are young adult as they are easier for me to read. I still have SE Hinton’s Tex to read. I might read that after Coraline. I have 8 books to go for my challenge. I hope I can do it. Last year I had to finagle the bagel to get my books read. I read 23 books last year. I changed my challenge to 25 to see if I could beat that record.
I am so tired but my foot is killing me. Think I will take an Ativan and see if I can get some sleep. I didn’t have any by my bedside so I had to get up to get some more. My ankle did not like that. OMG, I am in MORE pain than I was. I could fricken cry. Hate this fucking shit!!
