I am back. Momentarily. I would have hoped to be posting regularly but it appears that is not going to happen. It is now the 4th day since my last post and I do not foresee being able to post tomorrow. It is simply too uncomfortable to sit in this chair. Or lay in bed. Or move around. I am not getting much sleep either.
I highly recommend you not trip over any ottomans. Unless someone has conveniently placed a nice soft mattress on the other side.
Most of my time is spent watching TV programs I would never have watched otherwise. Also movies of questionable quality. And a lot of news. Lots and lots of news. I have made the observation that cable news channels cycle 4 stories per hour; dropping one and adding another each subsequent hour. And the stories "coming up" after the break are the ones that will not come up until after the last commercial break of the hour. These are also portrayed as the most interesting. And aren't.
Oxycodone and Hydrocodone both induce constipation. And the end of that will eventually come. Painfully. Sitting on a toilet with one leg unable to bend properly is tricky. And painful. All of this makes one appreciate the constipation while it lasts.
Yes, it does sometime hurt to laugh. I watched a performance by a comedian on Showtime (I think) who was hilarious. Faye came running into the bedroom thinking something was wrong because of the very odd sounds emanating from it. Jake somebody-or-other. I'd look him up and give you a link but I am running out of patience and the pain level is increasing.
I would take another pain pill but I need to avoid dependence. I was afraid I was overusing them and laid off for a day. I am assuming this is what caused the hallucinations later that night. So I am going cold turkey. I am also getting the impression you don't really need to read all this stuff so I will end it now. Hopefully, I will be feeling better by Monday and I will be able to post then. On some other topic.
