Screw you too, Joseph Heller (she whined)
This post contains nothing but whining about pain, so plz feel free to scroll past, kthxbi.


So, I can take my prescription pain med and possibly get non-achey enough to sit up straight and concentrate to write, but if I do that, then within half an hour, I'll get too sleepy to sit up straight and concentrate to write.. Bah, and again I say bah. Settling for ibuprofin, but I'm dubious about its effectiveness. Also, my neck aches like a mofo because I can't adjust (aka pop joints with loud and disturbing sounds) it the way I usually do, due to left arm not bending that way without pain, or having enough strength to put pressure on my chin. Again, bah.

Er. GIP?

Meh, sorry you're in so much discomfort still. Medication, it is a good thing, but phooey on it for its side effects.

**hugs you veerrrrrryy gingerly**

*hugs you back, under the influence of *half* a vicodin, which whaddyaknow, seems to sort of be doing the trick without putting me to sleep*

thankee!

Cutting pill in half seems to be a decent solution this morning. Of course, Murphy's Law being what it is, this morning my co-writer is not around (and I'm at work) so I could zone out all I needed to without a problem.

It's always like that. You (generic) feel bad and can't do what you want/need to do. When you feel good, the opportunity/need has passed.

Dammit. Someone must be to blame. I'm sure.

(You got crack_van'd t'other day and I found myself lured deep into the piranha tank as a result. Too much of that 'verse in one serving hurts my brain. Especially when I get to particularly funny bits I want to read aloud and the only victim audience I can find is my mom. DP porny goodness and mom, not a good mix.)

*gentle, soft hugs*

A half hour is enough for a drabble though, right?

Also, you can take about 4 of the ibuprophen - that's usually what perscription strength ends up being.

*more hugs*

Alas, I have an ats_nolimits episode to co-write.

I usually take about 3 (of whichever OTC med I'm using - Aleve, Ibuprofin, Tylenol), and get decent headache-relief, but it doesn't make much of a dent in the achey-arm/achey-face/achey-neck that's going on now, unfortunately.
