two shots of cortizone today. One in an arthritic knee and another in a shoulder. Don't remember why but every time I get a cortizone shot, sleep just doesn't happen. I even took a Lunesta about 2 hours ago and don't feel even a little sleepy. Guess I'll go commune with the cat. 1:09 AM.

George, if the sleepy feeling comes, go with it! A nap can be a wonderful thing, no matter what the time.

Hope the cortisone shots help. (I'm sure the cat enjoyed your company.) :>)

I could have kept you company. Am up since 1 AM and I am making sure I take Luesta tonight when I go to bed. My cat kept me company too. Of course now I could sleep when I have to cook supper.

Some late nights, I wish I had a kitty by my side, but come early morning, I'm glad I don't have the kitty duties. I've been there done that.

Hope today was better.....cortisone is noted as a "jitters drug"...I hate that feeling.....when I was taking chemo they gave me decadron to combat the nausea etc.....awful!!
Hope the effects are over now....and hope the knee and shoulder feel better.

Hope the shots are working, had shoulder and both knees done in March. They used cortisone on my shoulder and some newer stuff called Hyalgan on my knees. Has helped a lot.
