Today in #365daysofpain:
🎀 Ways I was well 🎀 Cait and I got to watch Inception today! We’ve been trying to for days, and you’d think it would be easy since we’re both in here 24/7, but coordinating around meals, our psychs, physio and our appointments, visitors, our med adjustments and moods and whatever else is going on, let alone getting the good lounge when it’s free? Sometimes it just doesn’t work out, but we wanted to get it in before my valium withdrawals REALLY hit and I can’t do anything but hibernate. So that was good, with the exception of the woman who came and moved EVERY single piece of furniture in the room for at least 20 minutes. My story has more details on that. Also I did my physio and it was Mac and cheese day for lunch which I love for me, and my current audiobook—The Less People Know About Us by Axton Betz-Hamilton—is very good.
💊 Ways I was sick 💊 Well I just woke up from a nap in which I was having a somewhat violent nightmare, and I have a headache. Last night when I slept I had pins and needles even in my dreams, because pins and needles tingling is one of the symptoms of valium withdrawal, and it’s not just in your hands and feet, but like, just wherever! In my boobs! What even is that? Aside from that it’s mostly the extreme irritability, so I have to go into seclusion after lunch, and then muscle cramping, sweats, nausea, and apparently random bursts of exhaustion, which is an odd one because valium is a downer so I should be feeling wired, right? And yet here we are. Anyway it’s going okay, I’m fine, I’m not having a great time but I’m getting through it. Um, I also may or may not have moved some of the furniture back after the film ended, because she scared the shit out of us when she popped up between me and Cait during the film we could not pause, and despite us making it very clear we were trying to watch the movie, stage whispered “GIRLS, after the movie could you just move this table back where it belongs over there?!” THE FURNITURE DOES NOT BELONG ANYWHERE AND IT WAS A TABLE ON WHEELS. Anyway I admit nothing.
