Well, my arms have once again swelled up like startled blowfish. I went back to the doctor and this one, after asking me if I was a foreign exchange student, decided that I must be allergic to something at work. Long story short, I’m back on high doses of ‘roids. Goodbye sleep!
Since Wednesday, I have slept approximately 1.5-2.5 hours. I’m not really sure because I was trying really hard not to keep track. I got sent home from work today at 10am because I had already put 9 hours in for the day. Also, because I look like death. Sadly, the combination of being on high dosages of corticosteroids and half a dozen 200lb squirrels dancing around on my roof (the roof people have come to fix the leaks) says that I will not be sleeping now, either. I think that I’ll putter around the house for another hour or so and then sneak back to work because just sitting here and not sleeping is worse than feeling exhausted at work. I need cows. And for my arms to stop being swollen. And coffee. Always coffee.
