So, it is 6.11 am Tuesday 4th January 2011 and I have been awake since 2.30 am. At 4.30 am I gave up on bed and got up. It is not my cold that woke me up and kept me awake, it is a crippling pain in my shoulder and collar bone. I don't know how it happened as it occurred in my sleep. Tiger balm, soluble strong pain killers and a wheat bag have not eased it...much. The pain pulses to a stabbing intensity every 15 seconds then every 5 and that isn't long enough between bouts to allow me to doze off. Right now, I am very, very fed up.
I have read, drunk tea and now have put the laptop on to try and take my mind from the pain.
Nothing is working.
I hate hearing the sounds of others sleep when I can't.
