I knew, when I woke up this morning, that I was going to have a rough day as far as pain is concerned. I had to be at work at 5 am, so didn’t get enough sleep. And it was truck day, so I was doing a lot of heavy lifting for probably 5 hours of the day…not exactly a good way to deal with a body in pain. But, what can you do? It’s part of the job…
When I got home, I took some Advil and went to bed, ended up sleeping for over 2 hours. When I woke up I didn’t hurt quite as much…ahh…sleep…it does a body good!
I ate a relatively healthy dinner of a baked potato and cottage cheese…nothing else sounded good. Soon I’ll be off to soak in a hot tub for a while…and then back to bed so I can face the workday tomorrow.
