So I woke up at 5am today. I fell asleep at approximately 12pm last night, so at least I got a reasonable amount of sleep. Still disorienting though, kinda sucks.
When I woke up at 5am, it was because my jaw was hurting. The freezing must have worn off, and I had opted not to take any pain medication before I slept, the last dose must have been at 7pm yesterday. After initially waking up, I had hoped that if I fell back asleep again, the pain would go away. But it didn't. It wasn't until 6am where I caved and went downstairs and took 2 tablets of Tylenol-3. By this point, I'm wide awake and after taking the pills, I was a bit bored. So I booted up Avengers. It's like a 210 minute movie, I've finished it already and it's 10:50am now.
This day will probably be the worst day. I'm all alone having to take care of Max, I have the most medications to take and I still can't eat properly. i find that my mouth doesn't hurt as much as long as it doesn't move, so it's right now in like a lightly clenched position, although sometimes I'll move it around just to test it. I'll probably end up taking more pain pills later, but I have to be careful. There's legit so may drugs going into my body today, I hope I don't do something....bodily disgusting. I already have a minor headache, but that could be due to mouth pain, not necessarily drug side-effects.
I'm gonna be bored.... I should try making plans with friends for the rest of summer break, before I know it I'll have to go back to school. Bummer. I've started to make a list of stuff I want to accomplish during summer break, but you know how things go. Taking care of my mouth and body during this ordeal should be my priority. It just annoys me that it stops me from doing other stuff. Not that I'd be entirely motivated to do my other stuff at all, but I'd like to have the option. Otherwise it just feels...restricting
It's around 4pm now, today's been a dry, long day so far. So far, I've watched Avengers and Xmen Days of Future Past. Probably wont watch another movie today, that'd be too much. For the rest of the day, I've got....nothing really, finish the rest of my medications. I'm feeling drowsy I suppose, not in the mood to do anything, but not looking forward to doing anything either. The drugs have put me in some sort of limbo between wanting and not wanting to do stuff. Ideally, I would have wanted to apply for a job or 2 I found earlier tonight...but my time may be better spent resting. Don't want to screw myself over later.
Alright, it's around 9:30pm now, I'm pretty tired, there's no way I'll be able to do any applications tonight. I just took a shower, plan is to eat a bit, then take my Advil, then brush my teeth and go to bed. But I really feel like i should do something productive...I got my planner out, I wrote out some stuff I want to do during summer break, as well as started to lay out exactly which applications I want to send out. Hopefully with some more direction, maybe I'll be more motivated tomorrow. But we'll see.
That about wraps it up for day 1. I just got an email from Squarespace saying my free trial has expired, and I don't think I'll be renewing my account here. The interface it nice, but I could probably get something comparable for cheaper. We'll see. As a backup, I'll be saving everything I've written so far, just so I can save it for the future.
