Can't stay awake...don't they make horror movies with that plot?

My pain has been outrageous lately.  It's been almost two weeks of this.  I would only call two of the days actual flares, but the pain, god, the pain!  It has affected my classwork, but today I got everything done I needed to.  I've been falling asleep sitting up, falling asleep in the shower, etc.  I can't sleep at night and I can't stay awake during the day.  Jim even waved bleach under my nose today to wake me up because I absolutely had to finish my interview report.  I've missed quite a few assignments already from pain and brain fog that comes with pain.  When the smell of bleach didn't wake me, he rubbed menthol spray under my nose.  That didn't wake me either.  Then he practically fed me four Rockstars with a straw.  I also had two cups of coffee, a cup of tea, and a four Pepsi Maxes (diet Pepsi with lots and lots of caffeine).
Sugar-Free Rockstar

Now that I'm thinking about it, I'm glad I didn't have a heart attack from all of that caffeine!  He finally got me awake, though.  All that time I had been sitting in front of my computer asleep.  I guess it kinda scared me (when I was awake later) that I fell asleep in my shower chair twice while showering last week.  I just can't seem to stay awake.  I don't know why.  What was that? I think I was starting to fall asleep...zzzzzzz...

Pepsi Max
