Yeah not looking forward to going to sleep because i know its going to be hard already.

Ive been staying up until 1 - 2 am and have to be at work at 7 which is usually a 12 hour shift.

I just had some ginger lemon tea myself and splurged on an icecream sandwhich. I could have done without the icecream. Sweet dreams.. xxx

Newfibrogirl I'm sorry that you can't sleep. We're all here with you. Actually, poor Amanda was unable to sleep and texted me and I was dozing but it's ok. I had to pee and would have gotten up to go downstairs anyway... LOL!! I am having cravings myself. There is homemade soup with spinach, angel hair pasta and little chicken meatballs. OMG, I wanna nibble. I don't know if it's bordome because I'm up or just that I never ate lunch or dinner and am hungry. I hope y'all get to getting drowsy soon and fall asleep. As for me, I'd say sleep will now come at around 5-5:30am and then I'll be up between 7-7:30. The rest of the day will leave me exhausted. Took my Dad to the doctor on an emergency visit Wednesday and I was running a fever. Doc said many patients are sick for a long time and they begin to get better and then relapse. The last 3 days I've been running between 101-101.5 fever. He put me back on antibiotics which are making me have nausea and diarrhea. What an absolute joy.. Not!! Oh well, it is what it is, right. Tomorrow I'm going to have to see if I can get my truck out of my block and go to the grocery store and pick up some stuff that we didn't get before the storm. Well, I hope the sandman comes soon.. Sweet Dreams, all. πŸ’•πŸ™πŸ»πŸŒ»πŸ˜Š

I'm sorry you all had a rough night. I would have joined the convo but I couldn't move with the migraine. I hope and pray we all have a better one tonight! Hugs!!! πŸ™‚πŸ™πŸŒΌπŸ’•

I rarely sleep..it's actually painful. With rx sleep aid or otc sleep aid, does not matter. When I do sleep..it's an hr or two at a time..it's wake up, go pee and I'm freaking starving.. go to sleep another hr or two and start over..then get up around 930-1130 am, can't focus, etc. Day after day after day.. I feel crazy.

Feb 04, 2016 12:31 AM

I understand. And for me I stress eat. Like right now.. So much on my mind. I'm having a day like that now.

Feb 04, 2016 12:33 AM

Maybe that's it..I don't know but somethings gotta give. Lol

Feb 04, 2016 12:38 AM

Yes I've gained so much weight since I've been ill. And it's only getting worse. I can't keep healthy food in the house so and I can't go without eating. When I stress my blood sugar ndoes drop off. Plus the fact that times liked this I can't sleep and if I took more meds tomtry and knowck myself out I'll have to est so the meds don't hurt my stomach

Feb 04, 2016 12:45 AM

Yep, I've never been so fat in all my life...so depressing! I wish I could find something that would actually make me sleep. I don't understand why fibro keeps us awake. I know part of it is pain but damn! Crazy isn't it.

Feb 04, 2016 12:50 AM

For me I have been large and at one point I lost over 100 lbs of course before I got sick years ago. And now im slowly going back up it makes me feel like a failure. I've lost so much thuis lasst yeasr and still feeling like crap.. It is depressing and constantly having to explain why I can't do stuff and how I feel day by day is horrid

Feb 04, 2016 12:57 AM

I understand. We can only do what we can do. I finally faced that fact about a month ago. I miss the old me. I was in process of starting a newborn photography business and I had a good job that pd very good..that I loved. My dreams went down the drain. I filed bankruptcy and put my home on it before it got foreclosed. I hope my disability goes through.

Feb 04, 2016 1:03 AM

Same here ,not with the business but I had finally gotten the job of my dreams and was only working a few months before I got sick .. I'm still going back nand forth with acceptance I get it one day and then one day I'm here in the pitty pit.

Feb 04, 2016 1:09 AM

Hopefully it will all work out. I'm going to try to get some sleep again. It's 2:08 AM here. Nice talking with you!

Feb 04, 2016 10:23 PM

I was up all night last night..lol, going to bed now, try to make up for last night.

Feb 05, 2016 9:24 AM

I doubled up.on night meds last night ..and it worked..I did sleep even dreamed a little but still woke up crappy

Feb 05, 2016 10:06 AM

I took an additional muscle relaxer and passed out. Was up every 15 minutes but went back out. It's just one of those things... We gotta roll with the punches. Sending you gentle {{{Hugs}}} and prayers that you get some rest.πŸ’•πŸ™πŸ»πŸŒ»
