I woke up early this morning at 4:00 am. I immediately realized from my pain levels that I forgot to take my nighttime meds. I fell back asleep and then Jim and I both woke up around 8:00 am. We were discussing the day ahead of us and theorizing about how Niki could have gotten out last night, when I stood up to straighten out the sheets. (Yup, I sometimes even make the bed while Jim is laying in it.) When I stood up my right hip subluxated. It felt closer to dislocating than it ever has before. I haven't the slightest idea what to do when it finally does dislocate. I still can't get my subluxated ankles back in by myself.
So my start to the day wasn't that great. I'm in a whole lot of pain today and can't even hobble a few feet without my cane. Because we still have company (it's been a month!) I am suffering an increase in my anxiety levels. Higher anxiety levels and increased pain levels lead to depression. Most of yesterday I stayed in the bedroom. The bedroom is my safe place; no one is allowed in but myself and my DH. It hurts sitting on the bed rather than in a chair or on the couch. My back has been really acting up lately, too.
Poor Sterling! I just had to jump up and go to him because in his sleep he rolled off the dresser and onto the floor. He didn't land on his feet, either. Contrary to what most people believe cats don't always land on their feet. A cat has to be a certain height up before he can relax his muscles and do his cat-landing-on-feet thing he does.
Well I guess I'll end this up here. Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend.
