I went to the doctor last week for my follow up visit from having gone to the ER, and while I was there I asked him about medication for Restless Leg Syndrome. He prescribed me the same thing that he prescribes my dad and told me to try it out.
Two days ago, I finally started taking the medication. I love how it feels to not have a sensation in my legs which can most approximately be described as pain. More like the embodiment of annoyance, as it doesn’t really hurt per se, but but is just an intolerable disturbance resonating throughout my upper legs and sometimes spreading. I love how I can now find a comfortable position in which to lie down and just stay in it. Not stay in it for a few minutes, but just… Stay.
Normally I’m constantly waking up all through the night and don’t sleep well. These past two nights, once I’ve fallen asleep I’ve stayed sleeping unless my pillows fall off the bed, I have to pee, or a cat decides to lie on face because she feels as though I’ve taken what she believes to be her pillow. (fucking Lily!)
I’ve slept so well that I wake up before my alarm goes off. I’m sleeping so well that I wake up and now muscles ache from relaxing so much in my sleep that they displace bones and everything has to shift into (Turbo! Might - Ty eng - ines roar! tur - Bo charged for more!) place! I used to have to sleep for over 10 hours to get my body so relaxed that it hurt.
Apparently now six and a half hours is enough sleep because I wake up rested and can’t go back to sleep.
Why do I have to take so many pills to be normal?? Why am I a broken bag of chemicals??
