hmmm delicious opioids

Meep. Am sick again. Still flu-ish, but that's not the problem. Gall bladder. Argh.

I measure how bad my days are by the number of drugs I have to take. Good days involve no more than 20mg of hyoscine-N-butylbromide. Bad days tend to involve 40mg of the Buscopan, 4 grams of paracetamol spread over 16-20 hours, with codeine liberally scattered in 16 or 30mg increments. Very bad days involve dihydrocodeine or tramadol, and unbelievably bad days involve hospitals, IVs and pethidine or morphine. Being allergic to antiinflammatories sucks, it really does. (And yes, I'm allergic to all salicylates, and I'm too hurty right now to try to explain how I know this.)

Today is a Bad Day. Have taken 150mg of codeine in 36 hours. Now pretty stoned, but still in pain. Meep.

I have dino to look after me, and he is being a Brave, Fierce dino, but I hurt and I'm scared. On irc if anyone's about & wants to find me. Don't expect coherence.
