Terrified . . .

terrified . . . . That is not a word I use lightly.  But, last night I was up until about 1:30 am doing our laundry, and after completing the laundry I tried to go to sleep.  After about 45 minutes of tossing and turning in bed, I experienced something that left me truly terrified.

It began with a trembling sensation in my right leg, which spread to my left leg, and eventually through my whole body.  I was trying to sleep under 3 blankets, but felt as though I was shaking like someone freezing to death, although I did not actually feel cold in any sense of the word. The entire event lasted about 10 minutes before I surrendered to staying awake, and I have been afraid of trying to sleep ever since.  The shivering was so intense I can only compare it to how a leaf might feel while trying to cling to a tree during a hurricane.

In the nearly 12 hours since, I have consumed nearly a liter of Jack Daniels (black label) whiskey, and still do not feel comfortable trying again to get any sleep.  I am not sure what is wrong, but there is something seriously messed up in my body.

If someone who actually is familiar with such trouble can point me in the right direction, it would be greatly appreciated.  I’m freaking out.

  1. Yes, that is terrifying. I remember when I used that albuterol and it did that to me. Most of the team, it was just my leg, but sometimes arms. When I asked the allergist about it, she acknowledged it is a possible side effect, but did not seem concerned. That lack of concern was more terrifying than the trembling.

      • I have no idea why my blog stopped recognizing your comments, but I approved this one. It should continue to recognize your comments in the future.

      • I took a closer look at the information available to me, and it looks like your registered email address has picked up an added “T” on the end of the “.com”. That would be enough to alter your recognition by my blog.
