I had a really nice morning on the whole. Taking these painkillers and having figured out a pretty good way of wrapping my leg to deal with what I assume are nerve regrowth pains is nice because it gives me periods where the amount of pain I'm in is probably about a third what I'm used to which is really, really, really nice… But when I unwrap and/or am not on painkillers, it's hugely more painful than usually (I guess it messes with tolerance). So I don't know whether it's better to be in mid-range pain all the time, or whether it's better to alternate between low-range and high-range stuff. I guess that's like asking whether it's better to be clinically depressed or to be bipolar.
Anyway… I am going to go lie down for a while, then get some groceries, maybe paint a bit more, and fantasize about leg chop-offing… Well, let's add four thousand words to this entry, if pictures really do count for that much.
