Damn...

numb

current mood: numb

Went from about ten percent awake/ninety percent fast asleep to wide, wide awake this morning when I stretched out in bed and seem to pull a muscle in my leg. Still no idea exactly what I did, but suddenly finding yourself desperately trying to hold your leg to stop it from hurting while trying to stretch it back somehow - well, that's certainly one way to wake up. Coffee is so much more civilised.

Limped around a bit, and discovered that even putting my weight on it hurt like the devil as well, so I decided not to go into work today, as my job involves mainly standing up, walking around a small area for about seven of the eight hours involved.

Naturally enough, now it's starting to feel better. I'm not sure just how much of that is due to being off my feet for the last couple of hours, or whether it is actually getting better. Choices, choices....

Sounds like a Charley horse, which, if I recall correctly, is indicative of a potassium deficiency. Eat bananas — the way Giles showed how in Isolated Elements.

Sounds painful... Probably best to stay off that leg and let it finish healing for a while longer yet. :nods:

Does indeed sound like a Charley horse. Bananas are indeed the best treatment.

Must have been the day for rude awakenings. This morning I learned that when you live right across from the complex's entrance gate - it is impossible to sleep through 2 fire trucks and a cop car arriving, sirens blaring. I love having to be peeled off the ceiling at 5:30 am.

Decided, that while I was feeling better, not to be stupid enough to aggravate it. So, no work.

5.30am?!?! Poor you. *huggles*
