Weird and Maundery [Dec. 12th, 2015|04:15 am]
Weird sleeping hours again. It's especially weird when I fall asleep in front of the television and repeatedly wake up and see parts of something, then fall asleep again and then wake up again and something else is on. Very disorienting. I'm glad everyday reality doesn't have that sort of discontinuity.

It's very quiet out tonight. I'll probably go back to sleep fairly soon, and when I wake up it might be raining again, but then it might not rain until afternoon. I'm going to try very hard to remember to have some tea and biscotti tomorrow this afternoon. In fact this entry will serve as a reminder to do so, if I get to it early enough. Now I only have to remember to read LJ before going to some other web site.

My big toe with the ingrown nail hurts. I don't know if it's because of the ingrown nail or if I'm developing gout. I've sort of been expecting gout to show up eventually because other people in my family have had it. I hope it doesn't keep me awake. I'd sort of like to get to sleep and then wake up about nine o'clock in the morning. Then I'd be ready for tea and biscotti by noon, and could just skip lunch.

But I maunder. Time to shut this down.

Better get to the doctor about that toe. It's relatively easy to cure an ingrown toenail. If it gets infected, however, it might not be so easy to take care of. And take it from someone who has had many foot infections, you don't want one.

I had an ingrown nail on the other foot that was cut out when I was about thirteen or so. It was not pleasant. Of course maybe they have better techniques now, but I'm still not looking forward to it.

I've had an ingrown toenail that required minor in-office surgery. It's no fun! Hope you don't have gout, which I've heard is extremely painful. Did diet help your family members who had that?

This one is actually pretty intense, both because I've let it go a long time and because it's a double ingrow (the end now looks almost like a tube.) The one I had cut out when I was a kid was only one side.

One of the things that's supposed to moderate gout is coffee, and my mom practically lived on the stuff. She still had to take medication for gout for years, though. I don't get along well with caffeine, and I don't know if decaf is helpful with gout or not. I'm hoping I don't have to find out.

Oh, gosh! I hope you can get that looked at and treated soon! :/

Mmm, coffee. I'd drink it all day and into the evening, if I could (like my parents did), but the reflux I developed 13 years ago put the kibosh on that action. I can't have it after late morning. Tea's less harsh, but I'm not always in the mood for it. I do hope it's not gout that's painin' you!
