Sorry I was not in to check on everyone yesterday. Still not sleeping and feeling pretty rough around the edges. (I scared myself looking in the mirror.. That would give anyone nightmares!! LOL😳). Let me know how you are all doing and who needs hugs and love and cheering up. Still feeling badly but want to know how YOU all are doing. Let me know. I'm going to try to catch up on posts now!! {{{{Hugs}}}} to all and I hope you're all having a peaceful and light pain day. πŸ’•πŸ™πŸ»πŸŒ»

I'm sorry alwayzinpain that you're not sleeping and feeling so bad. Gentle hugs to you, I'm not a huggy person lol but cyber hugs are great! ✌️❀️ here's hoping you have some rest and relief!

Thanks anonymous!! I'll have you converted to a huggy person before you know it. I love hugs and the best thing about them is that for every one you give, you get one!! Hope your day is awesome!!πŸŒ»πŸ™πŸ»

Thank you Alwayz! I really appreciate your positive attitude. Reading yours and others posts lifts my spirits. I am going to see my doc this morning to start the first phase of allergy testing. Am looking forward to results. Not sure how the procedure works so it may not be fun but, I try to go with the flow. ✌️❀️ I guess coming from a non hugging family just rubs off on you. However my 3 year old does get lots of hugs from me. She's a real blessing. She tells me to smile at her lol it keeps me in check. She hugs me and tells me that she loves me and we're best friends. That just melts my heart! ✌️❀️

Hi Alwayz, It has been a long time since you have seen me. I have been so busy with lots of doctors lately and then just not that much energy after that. Pain has been pretty rough but I have been getting a lot of breaks in the pain where it will go from a six to a four. So that has been a blessing. So my spirits are high. I am sorry that you are having so much trouble sleeping. What is causing that? I hope you find relief soon. Some of my medical problems cause me to have sleep problems. Either I will not wake up for a couple of days. I think my CO2 levels get messed up. I just can't keep awake. So I will just stay on my clap machine. It is a special type that monitors my breathing. Then I have the other extreme where I have so much trouble initiating sleep that I pass out falling on the floor. That has happened like 7 times in the past four years. I hit my head once bad. So even though I may not be experiencing your sleeping problems, I can have empathy for you. Take care my friend.

Hey Profiler!! I have been wondering about you. I was going to send out a post specific to you in the morning to let you know I am thinking of you and wanting to know how you are doing. It does my heart good to hear that your spirits are high. I'm so very happy for you that you are getting breaks from the pain at a lower level. I think that's awesome. You're such a great guy and I'm glad that I met you. You've been very supportive of me and when I was having some really big issues with anxiety you told me something that made so much sense and helped me so much that I have actually posted the advice to others (I've also said that it was given to me by you the first time I tried to help someone). Every time I start to get nuts, I think about what you said about us not having control over anything but only the way we handle what is happening right here and now and since we don't know what the future brings, we have no possible way of handling what is to come because there are too many variables. I have to say, it really does keep me in the moment most of the time and I thank you for that my friend. I think right now I'm not sleeping is because I'm sick, the weather is causing pain overload and I'm stressed because of those things among others. It happens, it'll get better and I'll end up falling asleep and sleeping like the dead for 10-12 hours and then I'll feel like shit because I got too much sleep. LOL!!! There is no in between for me... All or nothing, baby!!!😜 At any rate, how are things going in your life?? How are those bumps you were getting? Have they even been able to diagnose or clear you of that parasite infestation that you had? I hope so because my heart was just aching for you when you were trying to get help and and were being called Dilusional. I hope that things at home have been going well with your wife and children. You are such a wonderful man and love your family so very much, I pray that they are more supportive of you now. Thank you, Profiler, for being one of the people that I consider my friend. You have supported and helped me from the time I found this community and it has been a Godsend. I have been blessed to have created several close bonds with many of the wonderful folks here. I am glad you're back on, I hope you stick around. You're needed and wanted here. Sending you {{{{Hugs}}}}, love and prayers my friend. Talk to you soon. πŸ’•πŸ™πŸ»πŸŒ»

Hey sweet pea! I hope it is okay but that's what i think of you, a sweet sweet person. And I'm from the deep south where we give those nicknames like boo, and all that ;)

Alwayz, you rock. I have been thinking of you and hoping you've been feeling better. I am trying to get in here every day. I am going to have surgery next week on Thursday wooo hooo. I am going to be checking in. I am still learning how to use this program. :)

Biggest biggest hugs! Wish i had more to say but I'm just glad to hear from you and letting you know you're in my mind. I hand some others i want to check in with but my brain is mush mush from all the stuff goin on.

I am thinking and sending all y'all hugs!! And healing, positive hugs. Anonymous, we gonna have you sending out hugs before you know it!

Wishing you could get some much needed rest AlwayZ! πŸ™πŸŒΌ

Alwayz I hope you get some sleep tonight, wherever you are. Thanks for sharing what Profiler said about being in the moment and what we can control, that helps me too. That kind of insomnia makes me so jagged--I don't know how you manage to be so kind to everyone else through it but you sure are. I hope you get some peace and rest πŸ’•βœ¨

Oct 10, 2015 10:27 PM

Hope you are feeling better tomorrow. Sending prayers and hugs.

Thanks all.. Still having some trouble resting. I got an hour and a half of sleep but I guess it's better than none. When I go to pain management tomorrow I will come home in such pain and exhausted that I will probably get in the house, get undressed and crash after I take my meds. I'm hoping that is what happens anyway (without the bad pain that is). Marsemouse, thanks for your kind words. It makes me feel good that y'all know you can talk to me and that you all think I'm so nice. I think it's just that I can sure sympathize with everyone and I just want to give as much support, love and prayers as I can to make everyone's world a better place to be in. {{{{Hugs}}}} love and prayers to you all and wishing you a peaceful night's sleep.πŸ™πŸ»πŸŒ»

Repeat after me, "I think I can, I think I can, I know I can... Sleep!". 😴Hugs sweet friend! πŸ™πŸŒΌπŸ’€πŸ’€πŸ’€
