Day 28 – It’s getting bad…

I did not sleep well last night. I “went upstairs to read” (code for watch Friends) when hubby decided to play Xbox last evening. Not an uncommon thing around here, no biggie. I did read a chapter, but then turned on the news – perhaps a mistake. We have been so inundated with information the past couple of weeks, it really is quite overwhelming. Watched Jimmy Fallon and his band sing, then fell asleep.

I remember waking up several times. I remember tossing and turning to get comfortable. I remember part of a dream. It was apparently about COVID-19. Specifically, about how ibuprofen affects the virus. “DON’T TAKE IBUPROFEN!” I remember someone saying in my dream. I’ve been hearing how ibuprofen jump starts the virus, and actually makes it worse for the patient. I guess I have been worried about catching the virus (aren’t we all), and thinking that I have to remember NOT to take ibuprofen. Hence the dream.

So… after grocery shopping for my family and my parents today, I made one more stop. Walgreen’s. What did I buy? A magazine, Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups (my fave!), and……….Tylenol. Any guesses as to which shelf was completely stocked? Yup, you guessed it! Ibuprofen!

  1. It’s a challenging time for all of us. Sleeping well isn’t easy. I think my tossing and turning is as much about not having a “real” schedule, getting ready for distance learning Monday, and fear. Ibuprofen has always been my friend, I, too, bought Tylenol just in case.


  2. Our mind can’t shut off right now. Hopefully you’ll get a good night’s sleep tonight, knowing that you are stocked up on Tylenol.
