The only time I can’t fall asleep is at night like a normal person.

Hi. It’s me again after another completely sleepless night even though I tried. I really did. I went to bed at 3:15 this morning and laid there for two and a half hours listening to myself breathe. I’ve decided that my new prescription meds — Warfarin, Metoprolol and Gabapentinin — must be causing this in combination with all the other drugs I already take at bedtime, namely Amitripytyline, Trazodone, Benazepril Hydrochlorothiazide and Wal-Mart’s store brand arthritis-strength Tylenol knockoff. I have no trouble napping for five or six hours during the day; THE ONLY TIME I CAN’T FALL ASLEEP IS AT NIGHT LIKE A NORMAL PERSON. I think I’ll send an email to Dr. M this morning and find out if I can rearrange some of these pills because being awake all night is getting on my nerves.

Know what? SAM HAD A CAR ACCIDENT YESTERDAY in North Hollywood on the way to his aunt’s house. He said he was trying to avoid a fender-bender that had just happened in the intersection and when he changed lanes he and another vehicle sideswiped each other. Nobody was injured and all the damage was cosmetic but it still really stinks to have an accident ... plus Sam was driving his sister’s vehicle, which now has a scraped door and no sideview mirror. He has wisely decided to rent a car for the rest of the week and also avoid all typical California distractions, such as paparazzi, surfers, blondes and In-N-Out Burger. Oy, poor Sam. I WANT HIM TO COME HOME.
I think I should eat breakfast now. Maybe a couple of corn dogs! Thank you for reading this.
