One of the disobliging traits of the body is the speed with which it can lose strength.
Sleeping upright for over a year has had an unexpected penalty. The muscles that support my upper body while prone have fallen out of condition. After two or three hours my shoulders hurt. I get up and check my email and try to read. Futile since I’m still mostly asleep.
And it exacerbates that paranoia known as hypochondria.
A touch of numbness, shortness of breath, trivial aches and pains leave me worrying they are signals of some new or reoccurring problem and that I should rush to the emergency room.
All these bodily irritations and old and familiar. Ignoring those I shouldn’t have has been the main way I’ve made myself ill during the last twenty years. But the bulk are just minor sensations of no import. Now I fret about it more.
And in the early morning, in a daze of interrupted sleep, I worry even more.Warning: include(/home/edifying/public_html/pansexualsodomite//common/individual.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/richardlee/domains/pansexualsodomite.org/public_html/archives/health/sleepless_hypochondria.php on line 80 Warning: include(): Failed opening '/home/edifying/public_html/pansexualsodomite//common/individual.php' for inclusion (include_path='.:/usr/lib/php') in /home/richardlee/domains/pansexualsodomite.org/public_html/archives/health/sleepless_hypochondria.php on line 80
