Greetings, my friends of Flame!
I have the correct day this time. It is Friday, which is my day for Chatter! YAY!
I went to bed around 11 PM. Slept for about an hour and a half – and have been trying to go back to sleep to no avail. Since I have to write my Chatter, I figured I might as well get up and do that.
I had oral surgery on Tuesday – they took all my remaining teeth on top (eight, if I recall correctly), and six on the bottom. I’ve been taking pain meds since Tuesday. Tonight, I took the last one before going to bed. I fell asleep directly – and then woke up an hour and a half later – awake. Lovely.
I was not permitted to go to Physical Therapy on Wednesday, and Thursday was very cold here, so I stayed inside. I did some work around the house and I did not take a nap because I want to get out of that habit. I have an appointment on Friday, so I have to get up at a particular time. Of course, I can’t sleep the eve of the day I must get up early. Of course.
Oral surgery and pain medication knocks my perception of time for a loop. I *know* it has been less than three days since the surgery – it feels like it’s been more than a week. Part of that, I believe, is that I was told to rest as much as possible and not do any “heavy cardio” until Sunday. Since early January, when I had the bilateral cortisone shots in my hips, I have been going to Physical Therapy twice a week AND riding the recumbent bike at home. I haven’t been doing that since Tuesday, so I haven’t gotten tired from physical activity.
Do you ever lose track of your perception of time? If so, what causes that for you?
Take care and have a great weekend!!
