Day 28 with the Overherd

There were multiple casualties on the “door” side of the bed. I didn’t put a chair back-to-side of the bed to keep then from falling off because chairs in bedrooms scare me. Crazy me. Both Cozy Cow (!) and Ike (!!) went overboard. Overcow almost did, and Large Round Cow had rolled away down the bed.

It would explain the waking-up-suddenly-afraid.

Everybody is otherwise okay. Ike is with me in the car and we’re going to work, but the major signs of PTSD screwing with my body are becoming evident. I hate psychosomatic crap:

– viscerally afraid of everything
– STR takes a hit, due to nausea, sometimes very severe, as reaction
– DEX takes a hit; I can’t walk straight (sitting is okay)
– WIS takes a hit; I have a hard time putting anything together, including this blog post
– INT either is aleady taking hits or will be shortly
– SAN points are down
– If the retching starts to get serious, so will HP.

I’m going to clutch Ike for a while now.

I need to start driving. It’s one of the few things that alleviate almost all of the above.

  1. Yeech. How upsetting. Maybe you could think up a cow-seatbelt type of arrangement?

    Best wishes. I cannot imagine being that being that heavily stressed more than rarely and briefly, so I take my hat off to your fortitude.

  2. I almost wonder if some velcro would work if you don’t move around much. You could stick them to their places. Or, take a scarf and make cow-halters to keep them from wandering too far when they go demon-hunting.

    Or maybe I’m weird. >.>

  3. Wogglebug, your chair idea earlier worked wonder. ^.^ Thank you.

    Cori R., you’re not weird. :) My problem is rather odd, so weird solutions are but natural… it’s not like there’s advice columns in the paper about how to keep cows from falling off the bed.

  4. Hmmm, let’s see:

    “Dear readers, many of you have asked us here at Daily Weekend News to advise you on how to keep cows from falling off the bed. We are pleased to report that the most efficacious method is to suspend a chandelier over the bed, put collars on all the cows (bells optional), and connect leashes from the arms of the chandelier to the collars. Thus the cows may graze in perfect safety.”
