I haven't slept in two days. The little relief I had is gone (again). I just took my last Vicoprofen, so I'm bummin (again.) I got the prescript refilled but, as usual - can't afford it for awhile (again.)
I'm so freaking tired I could just pass out (again), and the Hydrocodone just makes you want to nod off even more. The only problem is, as soon as my head hits the pillow - within ten minutes - I'm hit again.

I usually count attacks midnight to midnight. I lost track yesterday. I also over-extended myself with the pain meds. I can't help it. I tried working on my book for a little bit this morning, but after getting hit twice within the period of time I started on the book, I was too mentally drained to focus on it anymore right now (again.)

I have been doing something I believe Elaine suggested; during an attack, while sitting on the floor, I lean completely forward, almost touching my face to the floor, and holding myself there for a few minutes at a time. What is wierd is when I do that, I have this faint 'popping' going on in my sinuses. I wonder if maybe.....

Ok, no more theories for now. Wish I had more Ercaf (again.) That helped me get some sleep this past week. There were a couple of times it wouldn't work though, and one time I took two straight up - knowing it was gonna be a bad one. Held it at bay - but couldn't abort it. And so it goes.

I think I'm gonna attempt to lie down (again) though I know what will happen as soon as I do. I'm just desperate for some decent rest (again.) It seems once I've had sleep for a couple of nights, my body thinks it should get some every night. I can't always pull that one off though. Plus, I am shadowing heavily too. Hopefully this Vicoprofen will kick in sooooon.
