Yesterday The Headache was very active, so I took benedryl and phenergan. Maybe a touch more than I was able to handle. Today I could not stay awake. It might be because I did not sleep very well due to The Leg pain and pelvic pain (because I did not take any narcotic pain killers yesterday) or it might be that I took too much medication. I took what was a normal amount of medication for me - a total of 50 mg of phenergan for the day and 50 mg of benedryl. Maybe it was a combination of both too little sleep and too much medication??
I have not taken any pain relieving medication today. I have slept most of the day again. I got up at 6 am like I do when I am planning to get to work at a regular time. I fell asleep taking a bath. I got dressed but fell asleep when I sat down to put on my slacks. I sat on the couch to put on my shoes and fell asleep again. I then got my stuff together to go out to the car but thought I need to sit and rest a minute. The next thing I know its NOON. I tried to get awake but I could only go a little ways and then rest and fall asleep again. I gave up and called in.
I am trying to teach and train the new gal and guy as much as possible as quickly as possible. I fear my body just isn't going to keep going no matter how much I want it too. My will power just cannot overcome this any longer. Things like today keep happening that I cannot plan for. It is making me extremely aggravated...if I wasn't so durn sleepy!
Trouble breathing today too. I am off the antibiotics but still using the inhaler. Maybe that's why I was so sleepy? I am still sleepy even now and I have slept and slept and slept. The Headache is still way above normal but much better than yesterday.
Praying for a good night and a great morning tomorrow and a full day of work. I have things to do and this lethargy is in my way. Maybe the sleepiness will put me to sleep tonight because I am hurting quite a bit from The Legs. I could use a great side effect tonight. Yes sirree Bob!
