A day where nothing went as planned
I had Painsomnia last night. I think I fell asleep around 2 only to wake up around 4 because I was in pain again. I had shut off my ringer so any notifications wouldn’t disturb me. I missed taking my BP pill because I woke up around 1030. I was feeling okay and thought about canceling the Zipcar for the afternoon. I had breakfast and then came back to my room. I was still tired so laid down. PAIN! Guess I am not canceling the car to do my one errand.
I just stayed in bed until it was time to get dressed. My mother called me twice but I didn’t answer. I decided to wear my new sneakers as there wasn’t a lot of walking I would be doing. So I thought. I got dressed and put the sneakers on. They were tight because they were new. I couldn’t get the tongue centered to properly lace the sneaker. I gave up and left. I walked with my sweatshirt and jeans on because I thought it was cold out. It was anything but. By the time I reached the end of my block, I had to take off the sweatshirt. I got to the place where the car was supposed to be but all three zipcar spots were empty. I asked the guy if I had the right address and I did. I called Zipcar and the driver was stuck in traffic. It would be a half hour or so before he would be able to return the car. I told them to cancel the reservation. A bus was coming and even though I didn’t have my headphones, I would go into town.
The bus was a half hour late. The trains were packed. I was hurting as the sneakers were new and I wasn’t with a cane or wearing my AFO. I was getting annoyed. I decided when I got to my train stop, I was going to order Thai food. I did that and did my errand. My ankle is not happy. I was sweating by the time I was done. I stopped at CVS to get a bottle of water as I was so thirsty. I didn’t have time to get an iced coffee like I wanted.
Because the buses were late, I was able to catch the bus home. I was sweating so bad I had to shower after I ate. I couldn’t stand it. It was cold in the house because my mother didn’t open the doors or windows despite it being hot out. My ankle flared up after the shower. I tried to ignore it but lately, that hasn’t been helping me. I wanted to make a cup of tea but I knew if I did, it might wake me up and I wouldn’t sleep. Course, I might not sleep anyway due to pain.
My mother wants to go to a buffet style restaurant for Mother’s day which is this Sunday. My sisters had made reservations at another restaurant so they had to change it. I hope pain doesn’t prevent me from going.
