But after being up in the middle of the night for relief of some, and a few hot showers to wash and relax I got a few hours of sleep.
Back in bed, wrapped tightly in a cozy, cotton blanket, if I was laying on my back I felt worse, necessitating at least one extra trip out to the bathroom.
Curled up on either side in a fetal position and I had science fiction dreams, space stations, bug-eyed monsters and me and the characters kept escaping, while sending texts via mobile to people outside the dream world. And then waking with feeling a bit improved.
Lying belly down, slightly more comfortable in the time between waking and sleeping, led to similar dreams, but the bug-eyed monsters winning and catching the made-up characters, followed by waking and feeling slightly worse.
Now the sun is up and while I don't feel good, the degree of wretchedness is less... I'll drink some water and try getting more sleep...
