06:36 pm - Not good...
I haven't been sleeping well the last week. Two nights I had bad dreams -- in one it was immensely important that I write something by hand, and I couldn't form a single meaningful shape, however hard I tried. That was far too close to current reality to be comfortable. The next one about man-eating maned grizzly bears trying to get in the house wasn't quite that bad. The next two nights I couldn't sleep at all until five in the morning. I feared that I'd have to cut my intake of tea, but on Friday evening I decided to take something against my aching teeth so I could eat in peace, and I had just finished my after-dinner large pot of strong black tea when I stumbled into bed and went out like a light. Which might mean that it's the toothache that keeps me from sleeping. Which is worse than if it were the tea.
So now I have to decide if I want to live the next ten weeks on pain meds, or dig through a folder full of horrible insurance paperwork and spend a metric shitload of money which I might get back if I successfully conquer the paperwork -- not to mention go to the dentist, which last time made the tooth ache from some vague "there might be something wrong here and it might hurt some day" to "need my meds to eat, drink or sleep".
