Today is going well considering it’s ‘Friday 13th’.

I got up at a decent time this morning to take my medication and eat breakfast. I cleaned the bathroom because it was a state. I went for a walk this afternoon. The weather is really nice. This is warm for September. It’s also Friday the 13th. I’m not scared of this date. I even own a black cat (mimi). I’m glad to be back home now. I’m having a break for a few hours. I may watch a bit of Netflix, if there is something reasonable on there. I’ve not found anything good to watch since orange is the new black finished. I’m not a massive television/film fan in general. I watch selected things like coronation street, a few documentaries that catch my attention due to the subject matter, sometimes the Jeremy Vine show, I used to watch the simpsons and family guy but I’ve gone off of cartoon type things.

I still don’t feel like I’ve totally withdrawn from the painkillers yet. I have a headache coming on which is the worse part of coming off of them. After that part passes it gets easier because the levels of painkiller are down to a point where the withdrawal symptoms won’t be so bad. I felt sick this morning. That is another sign of withdrawal. I’m still bloated and still have fluid in my joints so it’s not anywhere near over the withdrawal stage yet. The next few days are going to be the worse part of that process. I need to style my hair because the frizz needs straightening smooth at the ends. I really don’t feel like yet due to sensory overload. The painkillers dulled my nerve endings and now that is wearing off. I brushed my arm on a stinging nettle by accident while I was out. The sting was so sharp. I do that regularly on my walks due to stinging nettles growing at the sides of the roads. It never normally hurts that bad. The cat just grabbed hold of my foot and I felt his claws much more than normal. I may sleep through the worse of it because I haven’t got much on at the moment.
