Every night since surgery I don’t sleep that well. Or they are cat naps, or it’s just for a few hours and then I’m wide awake. Also when I close my eyes during those short rest periods I don’t have dreams, it’s like a hollow cave up there.
Another thing is, I like to read, and when I’m into a good book I do it for hours. Now I can’t concentrate to read one page.
The easy way out is to watch TV, but that doesn’t stimulate my brain like a book does. In a book I can travel in my mind’s eye, see what’s going on, think about what’s going to happen, see if I can solve the riddle.
Let’s hope this side effect of the anaesthetics is gone soon, I miss my nightly adventures.
