To Sleep, Perchance, to Talk

Okay, know that I am so very tired tonight that I can’t really even tell you a whole lot about being so tired. I am not sleeping well and the new schedule this has created is not working for me at all. I go to the doctor on Monday and we are going to “discuss” this situation.

The medication I am now taking to help me sleep more than two hours at a time is no longer doing much of anything. I can’t go off it because it does something, but not nearly enough. I have tried Melatonin and that didn’t work. My son has made a couple of suggestions that I will speak to the doctor about.

The doctor has told me before that the next medicine step up is tranquilizers and I don’t want to feel like that. However, I will say that the way I feel now is not a whole lot better.

Anyway, so instead of a standard post I am going to tell you a story which I hope you will find funny.  Last night I was awake, so I was playing Wizard101, an online game I have posted about some time ago (I looked and couldn’t concentrate enough to find the old post to link to, sorry).  It works hard to be a safe chat environment, so you can’t just say anything.

I have several friends on there who I met during the course of the game.  I have one friend who I met elsewhere online and we email and play the game.  Her character is a much lower level than mine, so we can’t really play together, but we can chat when both in the game at the same time.  Anyway, I will call her J and me S.  The conversation below is approximate.  I don’t have a listing of it; however, the idea should come across.J: Hi!

S: Hi!  How are you?

J: Fine.

S: Aren’t you up awfully late?

J: Yeah!

S: I miss talking to you.

J: You sound depressed.  What’s wrong?

S: I am just very tired.  Not sleeping well at all.

J:  What time is it where you are?  It’s only 9 or 10 here.

S: What?  It’s 1 here.  We are on the same time zone.  You are in A and I am in B.

J: S, I am in C.

S: Oh?  Oh!  Same name different J.  I am sorry.  I thought you were someone else.

J:  No problems.  lol

__________________________

The online names are created by putting three names together from 3 different lists.  For example, I am Scot Fairydreamer.  The lists are long, but not unlimited.  What I am wondering now is that, since I have two people with, apparently, the same names and both are friends and they are about the same level in the game, how do I know who I am talking to without a lot of who? and where? and such?

Lol it gets funnier each time I think about it, but also a lot more tiring.  I did tell the correct J, who happened to email me after the fact, about the story, and she still thinks it’s funny.  I hope you get to laugh, too.

By the way, in closing, I wanted to let you know that one of my poems was reblogged today!  I consider that a bit of an honor.  You can check out that person here —-> link <—–

Have a great day/night…I am going to sleep very soon.

Namaste,

Scott
