I had a strange experience last night... I think it was a strangely vivid dream that had a strong effect on me at the time, and I'm guessing it's down to the medication as I rarely even remember my dreams. I think I read somewhere that it can be a side effect (unless I imagined that). Anyway the dream wasn't particularly interesting. I slowly dry fried some bacon yesterday evening for this morning's breakfast, and later I dreamt that I had forgotten to turn off the hob when it was done and I'd left the pan over the heat. I woke up around midnight absolutely convinced that was the case, (even though I would certainly have been able to smell it if that had been true after 6 more hours of heating). I could quite literally feel and hear my heart pounding away far faster than usual, and it wouldn't calm down until I went downstairs and checked the hob. Once I saw for sure that I wasn't in the process of burning the house down I was able to calm down straight away and fell asleep again really quickly. I know that's a really boring story but the thing is, even on the rare occasions that I remember dreams, and they're upsetting, I have never had any physical reaction on waking up, or felt anything than I would watching a TV show - prior to last night. Weird. Hopefully a one off.
Today was very frustrating at work but not as miserable as yesterday and I avoided a repeat of yesterday's binge behaviour but was possibly punished for the bingeing with an upset stomach for most of the day. I'm still not very comfortable now. Seems a little unfair considering that unlike most of my past binges I managed to persuade myself to stay gluten free. As a result of the stomach issues I didn't even go out at lunchtime, and the only exercise I got was a lot of trips to the bathroom. A lot. And silent internal screaming in frustration. That's work for you. Well for me anyway.
Thankfully the M4 was kind to me and the weather, though awful most of the day, wasn't quite as bad for most of my journey in or home. If I'd been stuck like I was several times last week I might have exploded to death.
