I think I've been awake too long. I just ran into a U2 song in the wild (randomly listening to examples of how things sound through a cochlear implant, and Beautiful Day was used as an example of music with lyrics), and I kind of paused and thought about U2 for a second and asked myself if they were real.

i don't think they are tbh

i'm proud of myself. i put a mattress (and its fancy topper thingie to track how well you sleep) together all by myself. my boyfriend had to carry the mattress* all the way from the apartment complex office since we weren't home when it was delivered (why wouldn't they just leave it on the doorstep ), but i put it together since it's my day off and he's working. luckily he always comes home for lunch on fridays so he could go get it anyway.

*i carried the box with the other stuff in it too which was surprisingly big and heavy too so i couldn't help carry the mattress. now our apartment is full of boxes and plastic wrap ugh

We have a memory foam mattress that weighs about a million pounds. It's fantastically comfortable, but a bitch to move. It took 4-5 grown men to get it in and out of the truck when we moved.

oh man i'd love one of those. my boyfriend likes firm mattresses (rip me) so i'm not even sure if he's gonna like the one i picked out. i bought it online and luckily you can test it out for a month before sending it back.

anything but a firm mattress hurts his back. firm mattresses hurt my back. maybe a sleep number bed would help. i lay on the mattress for a minute after i put the sheets back on it and it felt comfortable to me at least.

also i finally finished the commentary i've been working on since the beginning of the month. 31 pages. no pictures, no charts, nothing. there's a title page, page of contents, and bibliography, but other than that it's all just me writing words.

My bed is a trap. It molds around your body and cradles you.

The only annoyance is that it can get very warm in the summer because it retains your body heat.

yeah, i've heard that about memory foam. i've only slept on one once (funnily enough, in the middle of summer so i should know) but i was too exhausted to notice if it made me feel really hot or not. it probably would've under normal circumstances. i'd driven 800 miles on absolutely no sleep, so by the time i got to where i could sleep, i didn't notice anything. i know the mattress was super comfortable, though.

Somehow ended up in the hospital again...this time for a possible hernia of the incision from my last surgery that was four weeks ago. Jesus Christ I'm only 22 and probably had more surgery than most people will get in their lifetime, I'm at 5 right now with a possible 6th tonight

Update: I'm alright, it's not a hernia, just a lot of internal inflammation where they operated a couple weeks ago, they basically gave me pain meds and Prilosec and I'm waiting to see my actual surgeon back in my hometown (since I'm at school right now)...Medical issues are so fucking frustrating

Thanks for the well wishes everyone, it means a lot

Personally I'm a big fan of the pain meds, but I'm definitely scared taking them. I basically took them for 2 years straight when I had ulcerative colitis and after my first four surgeries so I know I won't get addicted, but it's still worrying how good they make me feel.

Prilosec isn't a pain medication, it's an antacid. It neutralizes the acid in your stomach, which in turn reduces the pain that the acid causes on your ulcers, etc.

In my case, I had bad acid reflux, bad enough that it would wake me up at night and keep me from sleeping in certain positions, and from eating certain foods, and make me nauseous throughout the day.
