Note to self:

heippa_kaikille1.  Do not wake up at 5:30 a.m. on a Sunday.

2.  Do not fall asleep with the remote in your hand while listening to the digital music stations on your television.  You will wake up to rap music and not to the country music you had chosen.  Then, you will realize you can’t find your remote.  Because you don’t have your glasses on or a lamp nearby, you will then have to totally wake up to find the stupid thing (at the foot of the bed????), and you will be wide awake.

3.  Do not eat any bread, soy, or chocolate.  You are a bit sensitive to those foods and they make you feel like crud.  You will be reminded of this when you wake up at 5:30 a.m. on a Sunday, only to be annoyed by rap music and by how crappy you feel.

4.  Speaking of not falling asleep with the remote in your hand, after you’ve had some chocolate ice cream:  avoid dreaming, too.  You’ll only have dreams about holding the hand of a very pleasant and caring man.  Of course, I never get to see the faces of the men in my dreams, but that’s the only place where they exist, and it would be nice to see their faces.  Besides, that makes you wake up feeling like crud, too.

5.  While you’re at it, don’t fall asleep with your window open a little.  It is winter, it is frigid outside, and your head is only inches from that window.  That, too, will make you feel like crud.

6.  When you wake up, feeling like crud, don’t put on the news.  You’ll find out that the showman, Geraldo, has been in Gaza.  I wonder if anyone threw a chair at him…hmm…

7.  When you wake up at 5:30 a.m. on a Sunday morning, feeling too cruddy to go to church (because you felt that way Saturday night, too), go back to sleep to get rid of the crud.

  1. There seems to be an epidemic of this waking up feeling like crap on a stick going around. Hope you feel better very soon, RT!

    There might be a couple of reasons. I’m really not supposed to have yeast, chocolate, caffeine, and such (tyramine foods), because I get headaches and fluid in my ears (exasperates the thyroid symptoms) AND our heating/cooling system sucks and I spend the entire winter with sinus issues. That would be a lot of crud rolled up into one. 🙂 It will get better. At least I finally woke up, a little while ago, not feeling hungover.

    I had planned on going to the 9:00 a.m. service at a local church, but hadn’t planned on waking up until 6:30. Yeah, 5:30 is way too early on the weekend. 🙂 I need to treat myself better. The thyroid can cause a bit of a funk and I seem to get hit with it from time to time. I need to learn to watch for that stuff a little better.
