At 1:30 last night, I suddenly woke up with unbelievable pain. The weirdest thing was that the delirium of waking so suddenly made locating the pain momentarily impossible; I just knew I was in pain. I jumped out of bed and had to start waking up and narrowing the search. It ends up that the roof of my mouth hurt so bad that it was almost blinding (or was that because the lights were out?). Lozenges didn't work so I went downstairs with a book, got a glass of milk, and read until dozing back off, upright in an easy chair. I slept an amazing 5.5 hours, a once a year phenomenon.
