Wednesday night I spent the evening with a friend and stayed up way too late and drank a huge amount. Well, huge for me. I was told the alcohol equivalent was only 3 pints of beer. That might not be much for most, or even for me many years ago, but normally I drink less than that in a 6 month period. So all day yesterday, I was incredibly tired and very sluggish.
I managed to stay up until 7.30 last night. Wild woman, aren’t I. Was probably asleep by about 8.15. And boy did I need to get to sleep that early. But I was woken from a deep sleep at 11.50 in serious pain. The sort that needs codeine mixed with your ibuprofen. The sort that takes the painkillers TWO HOURS to subdue. Nit obliterate, just subdue. So of course, not back to sleep again until 2. And awake again just after 5 as the pain built up again.
So for the second day running, I’m very tired and sluggish. And oh so cheerful with the thought that I will be eating drugs like candy for the next 2-3 days just to be able to function.
Yes. Sometimes it does indeed suck to be female.
