I don't know what's worse, feeling like shit or sleeping so long your whole body hurts.
The last few weeks I had been working so many long hours and it seemed like they caught up with me the other day. I started getting body aches, headaches, feelings of ague and just plain feeling like shit. I did sleep some the other day but apparently this wasn't enough. I still felt out of sorts yesterday but I did have some things I had to do like go to Bluefield for my club meeting. I'm on a committee and had to be there to help plan some summer events.
I don't remember much from last night but I do remember crawling into bed quite early. The next thing I know I'm awake and hurting and sore as if I'd gone twelve rounds with George Foreman. I must have slept for fourteen hours. The one thing I do know is I woke up in the same position I went to sleep in. I hadn't moved in all that time. My eyes hurt...
I did find out my kidneys are working... I pissed for about fifteen minutes.
Now I'm hurting all over for other reasons. I can't win. Work a lot of hours and hurt from that, or sleep to rejuvenate and hurt from that.
Comas are overrated.
