Tired and Apathetic

lupus.cheezburger.com
I've been asleep most of the day.

I don't want to write much. When I set out to do this blog, I was on a campaign to spread lupus awareness.

Today, I don't care about lupus awareness or anything else. Today, all I care about is sleeping, and pain control.

For a while now, I'be been struggling with weird pains in my legs that have been making me miserable, back pain, and a killer headache.

I saw my doctor today, and she says the leg pain and back pain aren't actually connected. (I'd been hoping that maybe some physiotherapy on my back would fix everything.)

I did get my referral to the physiotherapist - I see him tomorrow. I also got a trip to pathology for a blood test (I had one a week ago, so really wasn't due.) And I got a Vitamin B12 shot.

The nurse warned me that B12 needles hurt more than regular ones.  I thought I was used to needles. I hadn't realised how much worse "worse than regular needles" would be.  Being in pain makes me tired - and the needle to help the problem didn't make me feel any better.

So tonight, after a day of being exhausted and sleepy, I'm still exhausted and sleepy, and very apathetic about everything. And everything still hurts. It's going to be an early night.
