Imitation of A Tortoise

I spent most of last night in Hallucinogenic Land due to my pain meds and ended up feeling pretty unrested when I awoke. As a result, I've decided to try and wean myself off all the prescriptions and just alternate between Tylenol and Motrin for pain control. It's almost 4 pm and I'm still feeling fairly comfortable; better yet, my brain has cleared and I think I am starting to see the light of day.

I always hear about people getting addicted to pain meds and I thought that must be because they made one feel all light and billowy and happy. I could understand getting addicted to that feeling; however, I can't imagine getting addicted to these feeling of being so confused and bleary. Yeck.

At any rate, I just wanted to let you know that I am feeling a bit more normal and am working on a longer update to be posted later today or tomorrow. I'm still needing an inordinate number of naps each day, so any task I embark upon tends to be mind numbingly slow and tedious. But I'll do my best imitation of a tortoise and eventually arrive at my goal of producing a longer, more informative post.

Thanks so much for the comments and e-mails and encouragements sent my way this week; it's always a highlight of the day for me to check the computer and receive that lovely infusion of support.

A little something to make you smile (at least, I hope!):

A little boy sat waiting outside a store with a dog. A man approached and asked if his dog bit. The sweet boy told him no.

The man reached down to pet this dog, and before he knew it, the dog had his jaws locked around his arm! The man was injured badly, and once the dog was pryed off of him, the angry man yelled at the boy "You Liar! You told me your dog did not bite!!!"

The boy politely responded "No, Sir, I did not lie to you. This is not MY dog."
