Much like my friend Ci, I seem to be suffering from insomnia. I’m exhausted, but I just lie awake staring at the ceiling, the window, the brick wall, Jay sleeping peacefully. I’ve been inhaling cough drops in a feeble attempt to decrease the pain in my throat and the cough that won’t leave me alone. It has yet to have any sort of effect.

Time to medicate myself some more, I guess. It seems that’s the only way I can sleep at all, lately…

    Medicated sleep is a false peace. Insomnia that is not permanent is generally a mental problem or stress… before I told Bird how I felt about her for 3 or 4 months I slept terribly.. only three or four hours… a fourth of what I normally get.

      I realize this. I never use them at any other time. But right now it hurts to be awake. I can’t breathe right, and the throat lozenges aren’t helping, and I can’t deal with lying in bed wide awake… so here I am. Anyhow. It’s just gravol, that stuff knocks me out better than anything except codeine.

    Feel better, ok?
