  Physically tired and emotionally drained.
I am physically tired and emotionally drained. I am enclosing seven typed pages. Today I worked from 1:00 PM till 5:20 PM typing.

I was awakened at 5:45 AM for sick call. I needed to get some more decongestants and also wanted to check my weight. The nurse gave me fifteen or so of those two pill packs. Last time a different nurse gave me a whole handful.

The one bright spot is that I am down to 209 1/2 pounds. That is great considering the fact that I basically am sitting or lying down twenty to twenty-two hours per day.

I hope you understand the difficulty I have writing some of the enclosed stuff, especially since I have no other human to be able to "check-in" with. No comforting visits with a psychologist here.

I am okay with you using your discretion as to what to post from my letters to you. I have kept the drafts of these pages to use for reference on further writings.

I was starting to say why I was tired. I stayed awake from 5:45 AM on. After breakfast I finished the Nora Roberts book, walked from 9:00 to 10:00 AM, showered, read some more, had lunch and then it was off to type. (One of the nicer inmates has been referring to my going off to type as going off to work.) I am lying prone on my bed now using every last ounce of energy.

I promise to retype this before I do anything else. Do not send it out for typing. I wanted to get this out tonight.

I am listening to a broadcast of the NY Philharmonic playing Mendelssohn's "Midsummer Night's Dream."

The CO's have a microwave, we inmates do not, and one of them just scorched a bag of popcorn to the maximum. The dorm smells like a three alarm fire. There are no windows to open.

Okay read and enjoy.
