Sleepless in Toronto

Tired of being tired

Hi, understand no sleep because just did 2 hours of painful sleep but not rested.

Oct 13, 2015 7:57 AM

I'm running on empty today so so tired. Xx

It must be going around. I felt tired all day yesterday and decided to go to bed early - ish and when my other half came to bed, I ended up awaking and didn't get back to sleep for hours. I was in agony nothing i could do to keep the pain at bay so i could at least rest.

( And of course I've got pain doctors appointment this morning & surgery this week (surgeon thinks pain management should take care of the extra pain & PM thinks surgeon should treat surgical pain & a very painful menstrual issue which is incurable.) and on top of all that is the anniversary of the loss of a very very important person in my life. As we all know stress makes it all a bit harder to swallow.)

So i got a rest of about two hours and I've got an hour and A half before having to leave for doctor appointment.

I don't know about y'all but i can't function on little sleep, I turn into a waking nightmare. Oh, by the grace may I make it through this day.

I know everyone else's was sorry and to the point. I still haven't mastered that art. Lol. I think I'll be starting a thread today or tomorrow.

I just know how difficult it is to consecrate on a long post when in pain so I've been putting it off to save y'all the trouble. Hahahaha & /or save myself the ache of not getting responses. Okay is official not only had the pain melted my brain but my hormones are making me a wretched mess of worry and all that.

Tired of being tired. Lol me too.

Big hugs all around. Hope y'all can get a little bit of ease today. 💕💕

Yep, same here. Tired of being tired. Feeling like I walk around in a fog most days

Oct 13, 2015 8:37 PM

When I get sleep deprived I get discombobulated completely. I do and say stupid stuff. I'm hoping I can sleep tonight. My hubby gets his 5 year colonoscopy in the morning and we have to get up real early. Wishing you atop a relaxing drift off into sleep! 🙏🌼

Day 4 no sleep even with meds. Can't work on no sleep. I'm useless. Bla@(

Been averaging between 2 and 3 hours a night. Usually fall asleep for 2 hours then pain wakes me and I'm Til 7 am or so. Get in bed and sleep until 3 year old wakes up. Sometimes I'm lucky and get another hour some days zilch. It definitely makes every little detail of life seem way worse when you're always exhausted. I've been having a time even getting on here. I have no quality of life and I just want to sleep for weeks straight. 😭

Oct 14, 2015 12:28 PM

I know how u feel x

Oct 15, 2015 9:35 AM

Me too! Since the weather changed ( I am a few hours East of Toronto) I have so much pain I can't sleep either.

Oct 15, 2015 2:58 PM

Don't know what was wrong with me yesterday, all I did was sleep. I do this every so often the the only reson I can come up with is ,I crash after losing so much sleep my body just shuts down for 24 hrs. Anyone else do this ? Even after all thr sleep I got I was still tired when I got up at 9 am. Sounds rediculious getting that much sleep then to say you are still tired. Lol

Oct 15, 2015 3:18 PM

Only when I'm sick. Sometimes I wish I could sleep longer, but my body is use to a schedule. If I linger too long in bed I get a headache. I'm glad you were able to sleep, and it was a bit more restful sleep. Btw... Missing you and AlwayZ! 🙏🌼

Oct 17, 2015 10:07 AM

I was missing you, too, Flappsy!! In so sorry I was MIA but like the rest of you, I was in a bad way, flare, migraine with vision loss, lost a friend that was 2 years younger than me and I'm being sent for nerve burning on Dec.7th. I didn't want to complain so have been sitting here awake for 2 days straight feeling like someone drugged me because I'm so tired. I am not going to do that any more. My peeps are WAY too important to me and I apparently missed several posts where I could have helped (or at least tried to). I hope you all have less pain today and have gotten some sleep. You're in my prayers.🌻🙏🏻

Forced myself up for a 100 pm meeting, took my nights meds and smoked some honey oil. Hopefully I can get back on track.

Between a sick one year old and the pain setting in due to weather change,
Not a lot of sleep. Feel pretty good today though. Going to make it a productive one.

Oct 18, 2015 8:42 PM

I'm restless and itching. 8am appt with the Ortho doc. I'm praying he'll know the best place to send me for PT & OT. 5 am comes early and I'm not the least bit sleepy, just antsy! 🙏🌼

Oct 18, 2015 8:45 PM

Good luck Flappy!

Oct 19, 2015 8:57 AM

I hope it goes well, Flappys
I guess that means your appointment would be today. (gee, I am such a rocket scientist Hahaha).
Operating off one hour of sleep, can barely see. Or walk. I don't know if it's the weather or the medicine but my joints hurt so badly even the strongest medication i have doesn't make it so i can sleep. Woooohooo! :)

So here's to having people in my corner who get it and understand.

Oct 19, 2015 9:02 AM

Flappsy, my thoughts and prayers will be with you. I know they will be able to give you a place for ot/pt and you'll be able to get what you need. Sending love and hugs along with those prayers. Hang in there, I know how strong you Are!! 💕🙏🏻🌻

Oct 19, 2015 3:14 PM

Weezie That happens to me, I sleep for a couple of hours a night for a few weeks and then BAM, it hits me like a freight train. I can barely keep my eyes open. I have to but is sucks!!! 😜

Oct 20, 2015 12:09 AM

It's worse when u don't pace yourself.
Easy does it.

Oct 20, 2015 9:29 PM

I'm about to nod off but just wanted to say... Appt didn't end up with outcome I thought. Too much to explain, especially with fog and being so tired, so I'll be back tomorrow.... Wishing everyone a good night! 🙏🌼
