Awake on Cardassia

No sleep yet tonight. I've allowed myself a small dose of a nonbenzodiazepine hypnotic, but that was an hour ago, and I'm still awake.

Lying awake, watching the last season of Deep Space Nine, feeling ill from withdrawal, and it is profoundly surreal seeing the Federation has been issued data tablets much bulkier – but essentially identical – to the iPad I'm watching the 14 year old reruns on.

No sleep demons.

It is strange. I was watching a Next Generation episode not long ago and noticing how naturally Picard picked up and used a PADD just as anyone would use a tablet to-day. Even the name PADD, which stands for Personal Access Display Device, sounds similar to iPad.

When the show Enterprise was in its original run I thought the Data Tabs would be the ultimate in computer tech. I was right - I have a Kindle HDX 8.9 4th gen and a first gen I-pod.

Red handled machete
I am currently trying to wean myself off of Oxycodone Hydrochloride. Shoulder surgery. Lots of Pain. Gobs. I sort of realized I had been taking two of those little white puppies (10 milligrams) every day for 6 weeks and was apparently addicted. So cutting back, down to one, not clean yet. Oxy is not even a buzz, or a high, it is a detachment. I get all jittery and squirrely in the early afternoon. My magic amber bottle of really serious opioids is dwindling. Will be empty in a few weeks. I am not at all happy with that fact but must become so. Bottle will empty. Soon. The Oxy has helped me tremendously with dealing with the pain of physical therapy. Fucking yea for modern chemistry!

I have always used marijuana recreationally, for fun. Now I actually use it for medical reasons as well- pain management. 7 beers, couple hits of fuck yes Colorado medical, pain blurs around the edges. Did you see the last Walking Dead episode? The slaughter of the Terminus... hunters. Incredibally brutal. Red handled Machete, mf. How does that taste?

Careful of fighting sleep on anything hypnotic. Unless you want to go on a wonderful adventure you won't remember the next day.
