Still awake!!!

Dec 06, 2015 3:25 AM

Well, here I sit, in the dark in my recliner and have had my eyes closed but not drifting off. Tried to think about peaceful things like grooming horses or the wonderful rides I had on my girl but to no avail. Pain levels are up, in still sick because there are people in the house who keep passing it back and forth and since I'm immunodeficient I can't shake things like I used to. I've been Up for the better part of 3 days with only a couple of 1/2 hour naps somewhere along the way. When I have a really bad bout of insomnia, it causes my anxiety and pain levels to climb. Pretty frustrating but you all have dealt with it so you know. Just came in to check on my beloved peeps and see if anyone needed cheering up or a shoulder to lean on. Hope that everyone else is having a peaceful slumber and wake to a peaceful and lite pain Sunday. I'm not going to bother at this point to try to sleep, I guess I'll watch some tv, the ferret sees me up and she is pestering to come out and play so at east I'll have something to do. Hopefully I'll sleep tomorrow. I can only hope.. Oh well, it is what it is. Much love, {{Hugs}} and prayers to you all.💕🌻🙏🏻

Alwayz, could it be a combination of anxiety about Monday and your toes? I'm here with ya.

I know the feeling Alwayz. Here I lay awake, and hurting something fierce. I hope that you are able to relax and get some much needed rest. Have you tried anything to help you sleep? When I have major sleep lulls, I drink hot chamomile tea, and add honey to sweeten it, with a splash of milk. Within 15-30 minutes I'm sleeping. Hope it helps!

I am very sleepy and feel like my body wants to drift off but I just can't seem to get there. It's ok, I will. Hope that it's a good Sunday for you all.. Much love and {{{Hugs}}} and prayers. 💕🙏🏻🌻

AlwayZ, I'm sorry you just can't shake that cold, and having to suffer insomnia on top of it! You have really been suffering with too much insomnia lately. Have you talked to your doc? I'm worried about you!

I'm just getting back online as I was sick from Wednesday through yesterday, and not feeling much better today. Then on top of that my brother was rushed to the hospital with stroke symptoms. It looks like it's all connected to cervical spine issues, but won't know for sure until after further tests. As we both know, stress compounds sickness.

I'm sending the sandman your way with total relaxation for 24 hours, dear friend! (((Hugs))) & prayers for some much needed sweet dreams, even if it's broken up 5 here, 4 there... It's better than none! 🙏🌼

Flappsy, thank you for your concern my friend. I have pretty much shaken the cold but think I'm getting another. The kids, my Dad, my sister.. All colds. The doctor said that my insomnia is probably due to stress overload and it will settle. He said take naps as they come and not fight it. My brother was rushed to the hospital in congestive heart failure and is in surgery now. Hoping they tell us something soon. He's been there a couple of days and will be there 3-5 more. He just turned 58. I hope your brother is doing much better and that there are no more scares. I hope you're feeling better too, I've missed you as always when you aren't on. Just trying to check in and get back to waiting. Much love, {{Hugs}} and prayers to you my friend. 💕🙏🏻🌻

My mom got the Flu.

Tornado, I hope your mom is better and no one else caught it. My siblings are passing it around; all single so they live together to save money. I'm hoping to avoid it.

AlwayZ, I hope your brother is recuperating now. My brother is waiting to see a Neuro surgeon; discs in the neck. I'm tired from all the stresses and still feel like I'm trying to come down with something. It's this crazy wacky weather! Praying for everyone! 🙂🙏🌼
