I’ve just had one day of my life sucked away…

When the adrenaline finally slows…
Sleep — lots of deep, deep sleep with vivid dreams.  
Moments of sudden exhaustion resulting in an instantaneous sleep
 — where you lay down and hours later wake up in the exact position that you fell asleep.

In twenty-four hours I slept for about 19, and I felt so foggy and removed.  I wasn’t sure I should even leave the bed for fear of making a wrong decision–any decision–it seemed too overwhelming.

I was reminded of the scene in The Princess Bride where Wesley has one year of his life sucked out of him and when asked: Be honest, how do you feel?

He’s only able to whimper.

Yesterday I felt like one day of my life was sucked away hours at a time, and all I could do was lay there and whimper.
