Storm before the storm

I should be packing right now considering that it's less than 9 hours before I have to get on the plane. I would be packing too if pain weren't such an issue. I have no clue why things went to pot all of a sudden but I've been incapacitated for the last 3-4 hours. I've popped two codeine in the meanwhile to not real noticeable effect. I'm starting to wonder if I should slap on another of the fentanyl patches. It's unlikely that 100 mgs would OD me and if things got really wonky, I could always yank one of them off. I'm also thinking of just applying heat to the one I had on. I read an article online where it said the absorption increases with the use of heating pads or the like. Some old woman accidentally off'ed herself with the patches because of her penchant for heating pads. No reason her loss can't be my gain, at least from an information standpoint.

Feh. There's so much crap I want to pack and bring with me that's going to cause space issues. I've been trying to think of ways to reduce the number of bags I'll be schleping around, not because of bag fees since I booked this flight before that particular innovation, but because I don't think I can handle a whole heap of bags and crap as I am. I'd be playing the real life version of tetris right now if I could just duck out on the owie.
