No Zzzzs

I had one of those evenings where leaning forward felt like someone was stabbing me, and my spine generally throbbed. I took a single Ultram, hoping it would knock the pain back enough but still allow me to sleep. No dice. I have major insomnia, haven't slept a wink, and now I have a serious case of the pain killer itchies.

For those not familiar with the pain killer itchies, take a REALLY intense itch. Start it on your forehead. Scratch. 15 seconds later, itch on your left calf. Scratch. Wait. Itch on your back. Scratch. Itch on the sole of your foot. Scratch. Itch on your right butt cheek.

And so on...

It's not as bad on Ultram as on a narcotic pain killer, but still WAY annoying.

Going back to try again.

That made me itch just reading about it.

sounds to me ("pain killer itchies") like you're starting to short-circuit. are you still under warranty?

i've had a weird dry cough most of the week .. came on suddenly, and only when I lay on my side. I cured it by sleeping upright, or hang upside down off the bed. works great.

I am starting to short circuit. It's true.

I hope your cough gets better soon.

Your icon weirds me out. It's like you're PEEKING out of the computer at me.
