I hated the wires.
I could not find a comfortable sleeping position.
I hated the pillows.
I hated the glue and tape on my head.
I awoke aroused at the edge of morning.
I am at the edge of menopause.
I am still fertile.
I must be ovulating.
I woke up feeling that familiar flush beneath my Moroccan gown.
I am a woman in my fifties recovering from a grand mal seizure.
I am absolutely insatiable, sexually.
I also desire something more.
I desire to feel, share, give, exchange, and receive love.
I am absolutely giddy this morning.
I guess a roadblock is finally down.

I don’t remember what I dreamed, but my mother said I was laughing while I slept, which means I was deep in REM sleep, a very good sign. I sleep skyclad, aka nude. I informed my neurologist that I would be nude when doing the sleep study.
When she told me there would be technologists observing me, I shrugged and told her I don’t care, which is very true. I prefer being naked while sleeping, and I’d probably fit in nicely at a nudist colony.

Takes a certain edge and drive to turn a health event like a grand mal seizure into a conversation about age, ability, and erotic desire. Turn on your vibrator and start writing.
Home from the dentist: What started out as a $50-75 bill became a $875 bill (payment plan, folks!). Having a metal filling replaced costs MONEY–and apparently this one could not wait…..so now I’m post dentist visit several hours later with a numb mouth and a temporary filling before the permanent replacement…..at least it didn’t hurt.
Of course, I started thinking about many things having to do with tongues, teeth, saliva, taste. The oral implications and thoughts about surrendering oneself to probes, needles, picks, depressors, and gloved hands. Swallowing and spitting.
