I’ve never been one that could take medicine well. Codeine makes me hallucinate, I’m allergic to certain antibiotics, and ibuprofen gets me a little nutty and always makes my nose bleed. The solution: don’t ever get sick. Too late.
I have taken a lot of Advil the past 36 hours, it wears off every six hours like a clock. So, last night, the sleeping didn’t go well. I was having weird dreams that prevented any sleep at all. I read an article a year ago, about a woman who was just sitting at home one evening with her husband when her jaw released itself and just fell to her chest. She had to have it wired shut for a year. So, last night, every time I was about to drift off, instead of falling off a curb, my jaw would literally fall open and then I would slam my teeth back together. After several times, I think my body was afraid to fall asleep and there was no reasoning with it through the Advil haze.
My jaw breaking off is now on my Worst Fears list, just after being forced to join the Army and having to climb Mount Everest without a peppermint mocha.
I spent the rest of the night praying and talking to God about how I know he didn’t give me a spirit of fear.
"Watch what you do, because if you don’t, you’ll find it watching you."
Oh boy. It’s definitely time to quit the meds. : )
Love, blessings and prayers to you this Sunday morning.
