Day 2 sleeping with the sausage pillow

Thursday is the day that I always think I'll get caught up on any of the work that I'm behind in getting done. It never seems to work out that way. Although I've been starting to feel a little bit more energetic the past few days, I still ended up sleeping all afternoon. *sigh* At least I feel rested.

One of the things that came of my appointment with the nerve specialist last week seems to be helping me sleep better. Pretty much, get rid of all the pillows I've been trying to use so my head/neck doesn't hurt when I'm lying down, take a towel, roll it up, put it in a cut the leg off a pair of pantyhose, stick the towel in like a sausage and put it around my neck as support. It's made a difference. I'm not getting the pain in my neck and head that I often have when sleeping AND I'm waking up feeling more rested! It's a small change at this point but a good one.

I've also booked an appointment to see a physiotherapist. Found a place near work that has a person who does both physio and acupuncture so I booked with them. They offer a variety of other complementary/alternative health services. They even have hypnotherapy! Don't know why but I'm crazy intrigued by hypnotherapy. Not convinced that it works but very intrigued by the concept... In any case, I'm really hopeful about the physio and possibly acupuncture from the same person. Anything to manage this pain is good!

    I can't wait for this day to end. My shift is so close to being over but seems so far away. My head is hurting so much now that I'm getting…
