Day 159 Sleeping – NOT!

Posted by themirrenlee on 08/06/2012

Okay, so I’m going to try a new approach to my rather crippling – and deeply annoying – insomnia.

It’s complicated, this whole sleeping issue, from insomnia to sleep apnea and other challenges in between.

However, I’m going to get some sleep first and delve into it tomorrow.

If you feel smug about sleep disorders because you’ve never had any problems in that area yourself – please don’t. I used to be, when I slept just fine, and now sometimes I wonder if I’m being punished for that smugness!

I’m just waitin’ for Mr. Sandman …

  1. I’m on day 66 of two hours at a time sleep. With the exception of once every two weeks, I sleep for 22 hours straight. It’s insane!

    • Sounds like me! It’s hell on earth, isn’t it? No wonder sleep deprivation is used as a form of torture. I’d tell them anything if I could just sleep!

      • OMG I know huh. I’m at the point now where I’m seeing things, feeling sick to my stomach and can’t eat even when the food is right there in front of me!. I ate six slices of canned peaches and an English muffin yesterday, ALL day! I have an appointment with the doctor again on the 16th of next month but he called in some Lunesta for me. I have to take enough to knock out an elephant before I even get sleepy but then I get like four hours of sleep then awake again for two days. UGH!!!

      • I’m so sorry you’re having such a shit time. The sleep issue is nothing less than torture. Wishing you a visit from the Sandman. 🙂
