Pain + Pleasure = Nope, Still In Pain :(

Can Tuesday PLEASE Hurry The Hell Up?!

Sheesh.

It’s Very VERY True What They Say About Time.

It Always Seems To Take Its Sweet-Ass-Self When We Really Need It To Hurry The Hell Up, Ya Know?!

It’s Like…

…I Know Time Is A Constant In Our World…

…But It Just Seems To Be Dragging Its Ass This Weekend.

It’s Just Because I Dislike Physical Pain/Discomfort.

The Meds Help A Bundle, Sure Sure…

…But They Don’t Help Enough For Me To Simply Say…

Eh, Let Time Take Its Time. I Don’t Mind.

Quite The Contrary.

I Desperately NEED Time To Hurry The Hell Up.

GRRR!!!

😦

As A Human…

…There Are Certain Types Of Pain I ALSO Consider To Be A Bit Of A Pleasure.

I Won’t Get Into The Gory Details…

…But Y’all Know I’m Right.

Alas, Broken-Tooth-Pain Is NOT One Of Those Pleasurable Pains.

It’s Almost Maddening, Honestly.

I’m A Big Girl’s Blouse When It Comes To Pain Like This.

BUT…

…I Did Spend The Bulk Of My Sunday Asleep.

Thanks To The Meds, Sleeping Was All I Really Wanted To Do.

When In Pain…

…SLEEP Can OFTEN Be THE BEST Remedy.

Period.

Am I Right, Or Am I Right?!

EXACTLY!!

I Know I’m Right.

You Know I’m Right.

WE ALL Know I’m Right.

😉

The Meds Are Kicking My Butt As We Speak.

I Woke-Up At 4:54AM…

…And I’m Already Ready To Go Back To Bed.

HOWEVER…

…I Do NOT Plan To Spend The Entire Day Sleeping.

I Have A Bundle Of Little Projects I Simply MUST Work On.

Let’s Just Hope Today Goes Swimmingly Well.

I Doubt It Will…

…But There Ain’t Nothin’ Wrong With A Little Hopin’…

…Ya Know Ya Know?!

SURE YOU DO!!

So…

…I Just Wanna Say THANK YOU, My Peeps.

THANK YOU For All The Kind Words AND Your Heartfelt Sympathies.

Just Gotta Get Through Today.

Tomorrow SHOULD Be A Much Better Day.

SHOULD Being The Key Word There.

I’ve Got My Fingers Crossed!

I Hope You Do, Also!

🙂

I Shall Be Hollering At Y’all Throughout The Day, Kiddies.

Until Then…

PEACE And HUMPTY-NESS FO EVA!!!

😉

Can My Life Be Summed Up By A Quotation From THOMAS EDISON?!

YOU BE THE JUDGE…

*** *** *** *** *** *** ***

I Have NOT Failed

I’ve Just Found 10,000 Ways That Won’t Work.”

*** *** *** *** *** *** ***

Granted…

…He Was (likely) Talking About Light-Bulbs…

…But It FEELS Rather Fitting, Doesn’t It?!

How’z’bout You, My Peeps?!

Does That Quote Just Totally Sum Things Up?!

It Sure As Hell Does For Me…

…And I’m Pretty Sure A LOT Of Y’all Would (likely) Agree With Me.

*** *** ***

I Continue Struggling With This Whole “Positive Outlook” Thing.

In Fact, I Think It’s Hurting Me.

I’m Honestly Not Wired For Positive Feelings.

I Try To Let Them Come Out When I Write, And I Think I Do A Good Job At That.

HOWEVER…

…The World Does Not Totally Exist In Print.

This Is Simply My Sanctuary.

It’s The Place I Go When Something Needs To Be Expressed.

WHY?!

Because Doing So In The Physical World Simply Doesn’t Work-Out.

I’m Trying, Kids.

I’m Really Trying.

I’m Really REEEEALLY Trying.

But It’s A Rough Slog, And I’m Unsure If I Can Keep-It-Up.

My Sleepless Nights Are Seriously Catching-Up With Me.

I’m Slipping Back Into Being My Normal Self.

My Normal Self That FEELS Like ME.

It’s Everyone Else That’s A Bit Dodgy Of It.

I Can’t Help That I’m Rather Cold…

…Rather Cerebral…

…Rather Blank-Slated.

Emotion Isn’t Something I’m Good At.

It’s Hard To Express Feelings In Person When They’re Feelings I’ve Rarely Experienced.

Over The Phone, It’s Easy To Fake A Positive Feeling.

The Other Person Can’t See That My Expression Hasn’t Changed.

They Just Hear What I Want Them To Hear, And That’s That.

I’m Just Not Sure What To Think.

I Need A Night Where I Actually Get Like 6+Hours Of Really Really REAL Sleep.

I’d Do Almost Anything If I Knew How To Make That Happen.

At Times Like This, I Used To Drink Myself To Sleep.

It Was A Bad Way To Get Much Needed Rest…

…But It DID Work…

…Sometimes.

I Simply Can’t Justify The Drinking These Days.

I’ve Gone Long Enough Without Re-Opening That Festering Wound…

…So I Think I’ll Let That Sleeping Dog Lie.

I’ve Had A Couple Beverages While Out-&-About With Company…

…But Won’t Be Doing So Again.

Two (2) Drinks…

…That’s It…

…Just Two…

…And I Had A Screaming Headache Straight From Hell’s Half-Acre.

It Was Awful.

What’s The Old Saying…

"Every Ounce Of Pleasure Must Be Purchased With An Equal Amount Of Pain"

…Or Something To That Effect?!

Yeah.

It’s HIGHLY TRUE…

…And…

…HIGHLY APPLICABLE To What I’m Talking About.

So What Am I Left To Do?!

I’m Just Not Sure.

I Feel Muddled.

My Mind Is Fried.

My Body Is Exhausted.

My “Positive Outlook” Is Fading.

Like That Wasn’t Expected?!

You Know It Was.

I Knew It Wasn’t Something I Could Make Last.

I Suppose I’ll Have To Settle For The Positive Moments.

I’ll Let You Know When I Find One.

It’s Most Likely Living In The Freezer…

…And Is Called “Mr. Ice-Cream Sammich, Esq.”!!!

See…

…Got My Moment Right There!!

I Wonder What Painful Experience I’ll Have To Weather Because Of It?!

Other Than The 9-Grams Of Fat Per-Serving, Of Course.

“It Is Not Indeed Easy, By Calculation Of Intensity And Time, To Apply A Common Measure, Or To Fix The Par Between PLEASURE And PAIN…”
