Woken from paranoid, fearful dreams of burglary, house invasion. The scene was reminiscent of lying in my parents' bed as a small child.

While at the toilet, heard an upstairs neighbour flushing; were we perhaps woken by the same cause (other than our bladders, I mean)? I shall read a little, then try to sleep again.

[Updated at 6:45] awake once more, from dreams of violence. I wonder whether psychosis is among the known side-effects of heparin? (Or heparin withdrawal, since it's been two days since I had a shot.)

Oh, how delightful: Chinese suppliers of raw heparin intentionally cut it with "a shellfish derived suppliment often used for arthritis," causing the deaths of 81 people and 785 cases of serious injury. Note that this wasn't "grey market" imports of cut-price knock-offs, the licensed Chinese sub-contractors were supplying tons of the stuff to big-name American and European manufacturing companies. Remind me why we wish to do business with these people?

I dreamed that half my hand was missing, like from a long healed injury or birth defect. I was momentarily horrified, then realized it must've been like that for a long time.

Oy. Take good care. Plenty of stresses enough to make for such dreams, I think!

I'll say, the only surprising bit is that you haven't had nightmares before. Did you eat right before sleep? I used to think it was rubbish but yes, doesn't help me any.

Dale, now that you have a pic added I can never quite believe how stylish you look! Rad.

Someone once told me that death was change in I have always interpreted being chased as change I was not willing to make, or change that was coming whether I wanted it or not.

Wow, come by for an update and there is no telling what udge will have been up to.

I enjoy your injection lesson. Thank you, that may come in handy.

Would regular massages in addition to jumping up from the computer do any good?

Watch more violent movies, desensitise yourself to the horrors of the world.

Hello Red, welcome back, it's nice to see you again! Massage might be a good idea after the thrombus has been absorbed, but not before.

Stress indeed, and change probably too. But no horror films, life itself is quite enough.
