The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS Aug. 1/2020

Today is Saturday and it’s time for LindaGHill’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday. Our prompt this week, should we choose to take it is : Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “more.” Start your post with the word “more.” Enjoy!

More or less I am pretty much at the end of my tether right now. It’s 5am and sleep abandoned me about an hour ago. Here I am wide awake no hope of Morpheus returning. Typing this I am becoming more irritated by the minute. I can hear the birds waking up, the pidgeons, crows, rooks and magpies all calling to each other also the foxes are out and about I can hear them too. Today is starting all too early. My drain is uncomfortable so I have taken a paracetamol, I don’t take anything stronger, well that’s another story.

Come dawn if you must

With all your noise and raucous

Nature is awake

Shelley Krupa

The above Haibun was brought to you as part of LindaGHill’s #SoCS. From a very tired and sore , grumpy soul, need I say more!

    So sorry sleep is hiding from you. Especially when you are in pain.
    I had to look up the word Haibun.

    I hope you are able to get more rest during the day so that you don’t experience even more irritation.

    Nature does indeed wake at a ridiculous hour. Sorry your day started off on this note. Try to grant yourself grace and hopefully sleep will be your friend tonight. 💛

    They have (at least here) an acetaminophen (paracetamol) and codeine combination. You might ask your doctor about it if the pain gets too bad. Sorry you’re uncomfortable, and I can sympathize with waking at 4 AM and not being able to go back to sleep.

      I we call that pill co codamol . The drain is painful but I can cope. I don’t brake anything stronger if I can help it because when I broke my back I became addicted to tramadol and Gabapentin. It took ages and a lot of grief to get off of them 💜

    I hope you get resolution of your gallstone soon. It sounds frustrating to have a drain in. Pain is not fun.

    I really hate when that happens! I’m not a morning person to begin with, but when it comes earlier than it needs to? I just about can’t deal with it.

    I hope you got some rest and feel better soon. I’m sending healing prayers for more comfortable tomorrows.
