A middle-of-the-night kvetch report.

I haven’t bothered with a full-on kvetch report for quite some time so I’m definitely overdue for this one. My biggest issue right now? I’M NOT SLEEPING AT NIGHT. I get tired when I’m supposed to and go to bed the same time as Sam ... but I just don’t fall asleep due to neuropathy pain in my feet, aching legs, shitty knees and I always feel HOT. After thrashing around for an hour I finally shuffle into the study and end up online reading crap news about right-wing douchebags — so many douchebags, so little time — and watch kitten videos on YouTube. A sample kitten video appears below.

Not sleeping, of course, generates its own set of problems. My knees and legs feel worse, my blood sugar runs too high, I get headaches, I act like I’m inebriated and I have zero energy. Right now it’s 5 a.m. and I haven’t been to bed yet, so maybe this would be a good time to lie down on the chaise in the family room for a little while so I won’t annoy Sam.

Oy, I hate this.
