Too much fun, too much pain
February 7, 2011
This weekend was a bit of a crazy one, for me anyway. I went out Friday and Saturday night getting about five hours of sleep total. Alcohol units consumed – too many to want to count. Surprise, surprise my joints were very sore and painful Saturday and Sunday thanks to the incredibly unhealthy weekend. Oh yeah, also add in the fact that I ate a disgusting amount of McDonalds and WHITE CASTLE. Someone should probably just shoot me right now and end the misery. But! It’s Monday, a new day, a new week. It’s time to detox and get back on track. Was the sleep-deprivation and arthritis flare-up worth it? Yes, I think so. I feel like I haven’t had much of a social life lately and it was really great to hang out with friends again, even if I overdid it a bit. The joints seem to be back to normal now, thankfully, after sleeping 12+ hours last night. Rheumatoid arthritis is such a frustrating mystery most of the time, however I do know with 100% certainty that lack of sleep (and boozing) makes me noticeably flare up and hurt all over.
Sunday afternoon I decided to take some photos in the St. Anthony Parkway area of Northeast Minneapolis. It was a very gray dreary winter day, but I think I got some good shots. Check out the photos on Tumblr – meinherz.tumblr.com
