  1. Well yesterday was fun. Had really bad abdominal pain and ended up in the ER only to find out I had acute appendicitis and had to have surgery (all in all spent 10 hours in the ER, got home at 4:30 this morning). Now I'm in pain and out of work for at least a week. At least I get Vicadin as my pain killer (whenever my mother pucks the prescription up, I can't drive for the next week so yea).

    Guess it's time to get caught up on my anime and game backlogs.

      Not since I got hired at my job last year. Besides my high blood pressure and being slightly overweight I was told I was in good health. Was told that Wednesday night at the ER as well which is funny because considering my sedentary lifestyle you'd think I'd be a lot less healthier than I am (then again I do work a pretty physically intensive job and I do try and watch what I eat (though my diet wouldn't be considered exactly healthy)). Meh, I think a lot of it has to do with how I sleep. I normally don't sleep on my back which is how they had me in the OR so I think that has a lot to do with it (I have a bad back from not using proper lifting techniques at work when I was still in retail so sleeping on my back ends up with me having back pain the next day). Normally I'm a side sleeper and this is the first time I've ever been told I had sleep apnea with all of the times I've been put under. That or its just old age starting to creep in, meh hopefully this can be fixed without having to wear the mask but I won't know until I get sleep study done.

      I blame old age. Just wait until we're in our 60s. Imagine how your back will feel then. My knees will probably be destroyed by then. I used to be a stomach sleeper but I've been side sleeping for years now. Do you use an extra firm pillow for neck support or something softer for comfort? All these years and i still can't figure out the best pillow for side sleeping.

      Honestly I haven't found anything that works for side sleeping pillow wise. I've always preferred softer pillows over firm ones because firm ones generally give me headaches if I lay my head on them to long. Currently I sleep with three pillows on the bed (when I sleep normally, considering I can't sleep on my side atm I've been sleeping at an incline with a shit ton of pillows stacked behind me (sucks because it's extremely uncomfortable but I'm sleeping a lot better then I ever have)) one of which is mid-range softness (main pillow), one that's firm, and one that's extremely soft. I tend to favor my left side over my right so the softer pillow is on the left side to support the main pillow when I sleep on said side (I use my left arm as extra support, oddly enough it has not caused any issues as of yet). The firmer support pillow is on the right side and is the only support I use when sleeping on my right side (for some reason using my right arm as support doesn't work so well so I don't). It's an odd sleeping arrangement but it's the only thing that was working over the last few years.
