After taking my pain medication before bed so I would sleep well, I noticed two things. One, it's nice to sleep without dreaming and having the pain become a huge part of that dream. And two, it is very nice to step out of bed and discover that for once, you weren't hit with nausea when you touched the floor, and you didn't suck in a breath either!
There's definitely still pain, but not like it was yesterday. I may actually enjoy my breakfast! More when I have it. Right now, I'm hungry!
