I slept about 8 hours, though I woke up around 0430. I wasn’t happy. It has been more than 12 hours since my last dose of pain meds and I was starting to feel weird. I also had to pee like a racehorse. I quickly took my pain meds then rushed to the bathroom. When I came back to my room, my ankle was hurting. I stayed up for a couple hours before going back to sleep. I was hungry but I figure I would eat when I woke up next.
My mother was yelling on the phone when I woke up around 0940. I had no idea what she was talking about. I went to the bathroom and overheard her conversation. She was talking pleasantly to someone so she must have hung up on the person she was yelling at. I can only guess it was her sister. I checked the time when I came back to my room. I just missed the 945 bus so had to wait an hour for the next one. I needed to go to town for my prescriptions as well as to Walgreens to pick up my scripts. I wanted to listen to the ball game as well.
I got dressed around 1030 and my mother wanted me to check on my niece as my brother in law was home sick. She had just got up and was okay. I left for the bus stop. It was sunny out but cold. I had a window before it started raining and I hoped to beat it. I ordered my Starbucks drink with the mobile app as I had a free reward. I got a snickers latte. I had it iced. I had to go through each thing to customize the drink. I then saved it to my favorites so I could order it next time I had a reward. By the time I was finished and put the order through, I was close to the Square. I had some pain in my ankle but it was bearable.
I had to sit at one of the bar seats when I got to Starbucks as the table seats were all taken. This kind of puts pressure on my ankle so I just wrote in my journal for a bit before leaving. I didn’t want to aggravate my ankle and cause a flare. I left for town and knew I would miss the first inning of the ball game. There was no way I would be home by 1.
The trains were on time and I got to my doc’s office for my prescriptions. Neither secretary was seeing anyone so the one I was talking to didn’t do anything as the other had already went to get my envelope. I told her she wasn’t fast enough. They laughed. It had started drizzling when I left despite it still being blue skies. That changed by the time I got back to the Square. It was getting really cloudy. I timed it right so I didn’t have to wait long for the bus. I went to Walgreens and there was a wait. The regular girl wasn’t at the register. I stood waiting for like 20 minutes, all the while my ankle talking to me. I paid for my scripts and then went home. It started to rain by the time I got to my street. Great. I had to get my mother’s stuff out of the basement freezer and I wasn’t looking forward to it.
I got a bag to put the stuff in and then went to the basement. The freezer wasn’t making any noises and some items were not frozen. I thought this was odd. I got the stuff with enough that I could carry and then told my brother in law. He thought someone must not have shut the door tightly last time they opened it. I wasn’t convinced. I put the stuff I brought upstairs away and then rested for a few. I then went back downstairs to make sure I got everything and grabbed a few more things. I then went back to my brother in law and told him something is not right. He said the breaker might have been tripped and it was. He said he had the flu and I stayed clear of him. I don’t want to get sick. I went back upstairs with what I grabbed and then went up to my room. I was hungry but didn’t know what to have. I listened to the game for a bit. They scored three runs in the bottom of the 4th inning. I knew they would win so I went back downstairs to make something to eat. I was getting exhausted going up and down stairs. My legs felt like jelly. I made some sausages that had thawed out. I asked my mother how to make them as I never made them before. She told me to split them and then put them in the oven. I did. After 20 minutes, they looked like pancakes, they had flatten out. When I told my mother this, she laughed at me. UGH. I told her that was my lunch and dinner as I didn’t eat and then she said what am I on a diet? I said if I was I wouldn’t starve myself! Fucking ignorant bitch. She really pissed me off.
It’s really cold in my room. I don’t know if my mother touched the heat again. Going to be cold until Tues or Wed when the temps will be in the 50s. Crazy weather. Supposed to have periods of rain though. Just hope my spine doesn’t act up. I hate it when it aches. I can’t wait to see my therapist on Monday. We have a lot to talk about. I haven’t seen him in two weeks. I also see my psychiatrist Wed. I will need a refill on one of my psych meds then. I think now, I have all my psych meds on the same refill schedule. Only took me 4 months to get them together. I hope I don’t wake up before 6 am tomorrow. I hate waking up that early and then getting sleepy a few hours later. Then I feel like shit the rest of the day. Doesn’t matter what time I go to bed. Sucks! I know it wouldn’t happen if I was on a longer acting pain med. I think my sleep would be better as I wouldn’t wake up in pain.
