I had a difficult time trying to sleep last night. I didn’t end up going to bed till 0300 or later. I don’t remember exactly what I turned in. I was in a lot of pain and it kept me up some. I got up around 9 because I had to go to the Square to get my meds. I had my coffee and a little something to eat and then I went back up to my room to cool off. The kitchen was really hot and I was sweating.
I checked the time and there would be a bus in about an hour which is when I wanted to leave. I doomscrolled Twitter while I was passing the time. Then I got dressed and left the house. I waited fifteen minutes for the bus. I was hurting as my back had cramped up half way to the bus stop. No one was there and I was grateful I could sit down. There was some kind of event at the Square so the bus couldn’t drop us off at the station. We got off a couple of blocks before. It was ok to walk. I went to the pharmacy and got my meds. I also got a thank you card for the RN that helped me with my prior authorization all week. Then I went to Starbucks. I had to wait as they didn’t make my drink right. I have no idea what they made but it wasn’t a mocha.
I sat down at one of the tables and finished reading the Suicidal Thoughts Workbook. It felt good to finish two books this month. I plan on reading Trauma and Recovery by Judith Herman next. I thought about reading Treating Suicidal Behaviors but I want to pause my suicidal readings right now. I caught the bus home. My foot had started to act up while I was at the bus stop. It didn’t stop and by the time I got home I was in agony. I had just enough brain cells to write a short review of the workbook (see previous blog post). I posted on Amazon, Goodreads, and my blog. I let the author know and she was thankful.
Then I tried to rest but pain kept me from actually sleeping. I just laid down while my leg flared up. I had already taken my pain meds. It has quieted down a little bit. I told my mother I couldn’t make dinner and I guess she didn’t feel like making it either because the chicken is still in the fridge. I will have to make it tomorrow or it will go bad. Think I will make if for lunch. I forgot to get lemon at the store. I had gone to the butcher shop to get some American cheese and burgers. I froze the burgers when I got home because last time I left them in the fridge they turned brown. I will just take what I want out of the freezer when I need them.
I am wicked tired. I did a lot of walking in the square as the event had closed down some streets. There were tents everywhere. One of the closed streets had a band playing. There was a lot of people without masks. I wore mine though. Sox won last night in the 11th inning. I am glad they ended their losing streak. Pivetta is on the mound tonight. I hope he pitches well. I don’t think I am going to last till the 9th inning like I did last night. I am just too tired and I am in pain.
