Blogging Under the Influence

Doing anything related to the Internet while under the influence of something (other than muse) is a VERY BAD IDEA.

So, why the heck am I writing this today? I should go to bed and read a book, or watch HBO. But no, I am here writing a new post, telling YOU not to do what I am doing now. How hypocritical of me.  I have a feeling I’m going to regret this tonight.

For the past month I have dealt with some very serious pain. Temporal-mandibular joint (TMJ) issues. My physical therapist suggested I ask my doctor to prescribe a pain-killer & muscle relaxant. I picked them up this afternoon. To be nearly pain-free for the first time in weeks is exhilarating. I want to write. I want to crochet. I even want to write-up documentation for work.

But I can’t. Because my brain is fuzzy. Yes, I know, but even more than usual. I have to squint my eyes around bright lights, so I have my laptop actually in my lap, sitting on the couch because the light over the kitchen table was too bright and the glare was starting to piss me off..

I catch myself staring at nothing. My eyelids are heavy. I think I need another nap. I have fallen asleep three times since starting this post.

I can only imagine how bored YOU must be….
