Ouch

Last night Adam and I both slept horribly. I’m not sure why he didn’t sleep well, but I’m pretty sure that I didn’t sleep well partly due to him being restless all night and partly due to my shoulder and head hurting too much. I can remember at one point waking up and wishing he was going to work already so I could get some sleep. When he finally did get up and leave for work, my head and shoulder were in too much pain for me to fall back asleep. I got up and had two advils followed by a very hot bath. When I got out of the bath, I lay back down on the bed and managed to fall asleep.

And then I slept until about 12:30.

The headache hasn’t left, but the shoulder pain (which is entirely stress-induced and makes it hurt to breathe deeply) has receded a lot and isn’t making me almost cry. It took most of my energy to gather up the laundry and take it downstairs to put it in the washer. I was supposed to go to a quarterstaff workshop today, but considering how I slept until after it began and even now I can barely walk without being overwhelmed with headache pain, I won’t be going. If I had been going with someone else, I would have probably been able to motivate myself into it, but everyone who I wanted to bring couldn’t make it. It’s really hard to tell if the workshop would have made me feel any worse, or better. It may well have helped work out the shoulder problem, but the headache… who knows.

Adam’s at work today so I’m home with the cats. I wanted to go get a photo framed, but between getting laundry done and not being able to function like a human at the moment, I don’t think it’s going to happen.

    That’s odd because I slept horrible last night too…

      Other people have told me the same thing. Very strange.
