When An Extremity Falls Asleep

So, I’ve been battling a headache this afternoon. After laying in bed for a good hour, mostly on my back, with my legs crossed, I stretched my legs out only to realize my knees have fallen asleep. Not my legs, just my knees. I have had this  before and if there is one thing I have learned it’s not to walk. That is, unless you want to look like a new born calf with a possibility of making out with the floor. Don’t get me wrong, I’m single and would love to make out with someone, the floor just isn’t my first choice, or any choice for that matter. So here I am. Laying in bed. Waiting for my headache to finally leave me alone and my knees to wake up. There is a slight chance I might have to pee soon and I don’t think crawling on the hard floor is a good idea either.

Gotta love it when you wake up in the middle of the night because your entire arm is asleep. Yep. From the shoulder down to the finger tips. Tingling for, what seems like hours. Pumping the fist, dangling your arm off the side of the bed, all in an effort to get it to wake up so you can go back to sleep. Flayling your arms around like a monkey with an itch it can’t scratch. Why must you have fallen asleep on your arm that way? Can’t the blood just find a way to get where it needs to be? At this point you think you must be losing blood in you body because it doesn’t seem like you have any going to the right place. Oh great. Now I’m dying. I thought it was just my arm falling asleep but I have no blood flow. Good bye world. Oh, hey, I can feel my arm again and it’s not all tingling. Yay, I’m still alive.

An hour later.. Why am I still awake?! Why did my arm have to wake me up? I thought I was dying. Now, I wish I was dead. At least I’d be sleeping. Why can’t I just sleep? I need to get some sleep. I’m tired. Wait, what time is it? Beep beep beep beep  Guess that answers that question. Gonna be a long day.
