Sound asleep- I wish

My nagging headache has resurfaced again, a grumbling stomach as well, the cold night has given me chattering teeth and a murmuring heart gives me hell. My breathing's developed a whistle-like wheeze and tinnitus with matching tone, I can't get to sleep with these noises I make- why can't I just leave me alone?

Thanks for dropping by, Eve. May I humbly suggest the juice of a freshly squeezed bottle of brandy? Viv x

Thanks, Richard. I tend to sleep fitfully, and my dreams get wierder. Still, better than no dreams at all... Regards, Viv

This gave me a laugh Viv and I sure needed one. I fell last night coming up my stairs trying to pickup a heavy glass water bottle, I lost my balance. I fell on both sore knees and plowed into my book case head first so I am feeling whip lash. There has got to be a poem somewhere in there!; )

I've heard of getting your head into a good book, but that's a little extreme, Connie. I hope you are, unlike the front and back of the book, recovered. Viv x
