Normally, I consider myself an intelligent human being capable of logical, deductive thought and reasoning. So for nearly 5 months, I have woken up and walked around with a limp in the morning, it’s why Vicodin has become a part of my morning pill routine. So at 4 a.m, when I was having trouble getting comfortable last night in bed because my hip was bothering me, it suddenly hit me… I sleep fully clothed, every night. And my hip and thigh are constantly swollen. So I took off the pajamas and crawled into bed and slept and didn’t wake up this morning with a limp. Duh! I have even complained about the fact that my underclothing isn’t fitting quit right with a swollen hip and thigh. I can’t believe it took me 5 months to figure that out. Since I sleep on my right side naturally and that’s the side giving me the most problems, it only makes sense that sleeping in clothing would bother me. Especially since once I hit the bed, I’m dead. I normally wake up in the same position I went to sleep in.
Needless to say, I felt like an idiot when I figured it out. It’s not rocket science or even college algebra, I shouldn’t need a tutor to figure out that my clothing is bothering me at night. So, yeah, that and writing is my big accomplishment for the day, but at least I had some!
