As I have taken enough Valium to knock me silly and need to finish before it kicks in. The good news is that the freak cold here is supposed to clear up by weekend, at least for a little while. I'm doing better, but as soon as I get a little cold or a little sore, I tense up which makes me hurt a LOT which makes me tense up even more......and this little cycle just keeps going and I can't get it stopped without drugs. The white chocolate martinis actually work a bit better, but I'm tired of them. I never thought I'd say that, but I've never had them 3 nights in a row either. I guess that makes them a pretty safe muscle relaxer, since if I can get tired of something that tastes THAT good, my risks of becoming an alcoholic are minimum. Still, I'm ready for real life again.
