Powering Through the Work

I got up early. The trick to getting up early to to take my phenergan around 5 or 6 p.m. instead of right before I go to bed. It's late enough that I don't throw up in the morning, but early enough that I don't wake up feeling groggy. It still causes restless leg syndrome, bad, but it's better than waking up with restless legs at midnight. At least at 8 0r 9 p.m., I can reasonably get up and walk ou the pain.

I was at the office by 8:15 a.m. and am getting through the backlog from not being here all last week. Hopefully, I will get caught up or even ahead. I have a bunch of pleadings to file, and it would be terrific if I got them out this week.

My colitis is acting up again. The pregnancy had put it in remission, but the dehydration/food poisoning episode restarted it. It sucks, because it's really, really hard to stay hydrated right now. I've had one bottled water (16 oz.), a 90 calorie cereal snack pack, and four crackers with cheese. Not exactly healthy, but something's in my tummy, at least. I'll keep eating every three hours, since that's the only thing that seems to work.
