Hallways, Always.

So.

I'm not asleep. I've taken my nightly meds, but have foregone the Good Worker Bee Pill, in favor of the Highly Unreliable Sleep Aid. Problem with all my meds (and especially the Good Worker Bee Pill and the Highly Unreliable Sleep Aid) is that my body often develops resistances to drugs at rather alarming rates. And by the time I've tripled the dosage on the Good Worker Bee Pill, a) it's not working and b) the side effects are making me ill.

So.

Tonight I will sleep, or I will not sleep. If I do not sleep, I will stay awake. If I stay awake, I will not allow myself sleep until tomorrow night. At which point, eventually exhausted, my body will reset. I'll crash. I'll sleep. At least one night.

I can never sleep either without drinking or doing something physically exhausting.

It never occurred to me that one could name medications that way; I usually try to remember the chemical names like loratadine and cetirizine just to defy the marketers of Claritin and Zyrtec the power of naming. I like it; it's sort of like Winnie the Pooh going to the pharmacist.

"Pooh Goes to the Pharmacist" should be an entry title.

(In other news, I like the way you thought.)

I call my trazadone, which I don't take but on the weekends because it doesn't allow me to be a Good Worker Bee and get the fuck up when I need to -- but I call it my Drone Pill. I feel very drone-like when I awake. But I do sleep. At least on the weekends.
