It may be foolish, but I am not going to take any anti-inflammatory medicine before I go to bed tonight, nor will I take any paracetamol. I want to see how bad the pain is in my back and eyes after having used those two medicines for the past week. This experiment may fail completely and I may change my mind quickly, but I will find that out soon enough. The intention is there anyway.
Normally I would have already been asleep by now, but I did something interesting for dinner this evening. I ate a lot of vanilla custard just to see if I could and because I had an enormous craving for it. My reaction to it was to become very sleepy, so I had to go to bed immediately and sleep for a few hours. Other than that, I seem to be fine. No part of me is protesting.
Of course, the custard is so adulterated that you can hardly call it a dairy product, but it is still a nice surprise to be able to eat it. I am going to repeat this experience. I just have to calculate in the fact that I need to sleep afterwards.
The optician called this afternoon to tell me that my sunglasses were ready to be picked up, which is a week earlier than they said they'd de done. I rode my bike over there with my regular sunglasses on my nose because the sun was shining brightly. It was so busy at the optician's that I had to wait a while for my final fitting, but it was worth it. These sunglasses are great, and never having had a good pair (let alone the prescription kind), I feel that something awfully good has happened for my eyes when I wear them. The polarized lenses keep out all the UV light without making it so dark that I can't see the details.
Things are starting to hurt a bit so I have to go to bed and make myself comfortable. A sleeping pill will be in order.
