sleep



Woah, where did the day go?  I have slept most of the day away.  It astounds me that I can sleep for so long and so often during the day.

I had a bit of a 'tude' today as my husband told me, an interferon attitude no doubt...  I'll admit to feeling grumpy, short tempered, and lacking in patience.  I think that my response to these sorts of feelings is to just shut myself away, shut down and wait for them to pass.  Hence the sleeping bout.  I also know that those sorts of feelings become intensified when I am tired.  Sigh, it's all related isn't it?

Hey Epi - when I'm grumpy I now know I either need paracetamol or sleep.   I grumped last night (and I've been so good lately!!).   I put it down to full moon :-) - with all that water we're drinking our bodies are probably having a spring tide!!!   Hope you manage to get some sleep tonight xxx

I hardly ever get the grump, but the sleep thing is my specialty. When I get those fevers we talked about, I even managed to sleep more hours per day. Usually I'm a vamp. But yesterday I slept from 5 to 9 pm. And again from 2 am till almost 12. 2 hrs later I am already sleepy again. I really do not understand that they body can go on and on demanding so much sleep, since I've never been someone who sleeps excessively, until just about a month before I was diagnosed.

When we renovated our apartment, I worked like a man from 8 am till 2 am for over 3 weeks, almost non-stop. I would only stop to have something to eat and sleep 6 hrs a night. I've always been very active, and raising 5 kids on my own, one cannot get much rest nor sleep.

Anyone who sees me now, cannot believe their eyes. This is so not the Marcia they have always known.

It just shows how crazy this disease and it's treatment is.

I'm so tired, I haven't slept a wink
I'm so tired, my mind is on the blink


I wonder should I get up and fix myself a drink
No,no,no.

I'm so tired I don't know what to do
I'm so tired my mind is set on you
I wonder should I call you but I know what you would do

You'd say I'm putting you on
But it's no joke, it's doing me harm
You know I can't sleep, I can't stop my brain
You know it's three weeks, I'm going insane
You know I'd give you everything I've got
for a little peace of mind

I'm so tired, I'm feeling so upset
Although I'm so tired I'll have another cigarette
And curse Sir Walter Raleigh
He was such a stupid git.

You'd say I'm putting you on
But it's no joke, it's doing me harm
You know I can't sleep, I can't stop my brain
You know it's three weeks, I'm going insane
You know I'd give you everything I've got
for a little peace of mind
I´d give you everything I`ve got for a little peace of mind
I`d give you everything I`ve got for a little peace of mind
(mumbling)

I dont know of any song thats describe tx mood better
I´m even more tired now a couple of days after last riba.

ca

Yup, ca, that is a pretty right on description alright.  And last night I barely slept a wink, grrr....  Must admit to being apprehensive about stopping the riba when the time comes as I am pretty sure that's what's hyping me up and keeping me going the days after the nights that I don't sleep.

Kristina, I think you are right about the full moon...  I am always restless and disturbed when she reaches her zenith.

And I totally hear what you are saying Marcia, I had already slept from midnight sat to 0915 sun morn, then at 1045 I was asleep again until 2p, and then asleep on the couch from 330p to 7p. What is that about??

Sure is a wild and crazy ride!
