I posted a couple of weeks ago here and here about my terrible bout with insomnia. After those two nights without sleeping, I did finally sleep the next night all night. But then the night after that (which would have been Thursday night), I only slept about three hours. We were leaving that Friday to take our son away for the weekend to Dutch Wonderland in Lancaster, PA. I really, really wanted to have enough sleep because I wanted to be in good shape for him for the weekend. With my lack of sleep that whole week, I was wondering whether or not I would spend most of my time in the hotel room.
I was very tired the day we left but I did make it through the day. That first day, I managed to lie down for a couple of hours and I slept some. I slept pretty good while at the hotel that entire weekend. I typically never sleep at a hotel. I was awake many times both nights but I did fall back to sleep. So while the sleep wasn’t constant, I was still sleeping some.
Since then, I have been sleeping pretty good and it’s like my body is now trying to catch up. I could sleep round the clock if I were able to! It is such a weird illness, isn’t it? I hear of a lot of ME/CFS patients who do sleep most of the time. I am totally opposite of that. The only times I really sleep good is after periods of no sleep.
Now that summer vacation is here, my son has been keeping me busy and we have been doing a good bit of running around. It takes a toll on me at the end of the day but I enjoy having him here also. I wish that he had another sibling (no, that is not a hint that I want to get pregnant because that is definitely out of the question!) around his age who could keep him company when I’m not up to it.
We have rounded up a few phone numbers of my son’s friends and he has his little nieces that he can play with this summer, though. Afriend of mine for over 20years had my son and I up to swim in her pool this week and that was fun.I would love to have the two granddaughters visit us more often. I physically and mentally can’t handle more than one child, though. They are good girls – very well behaved, but kids are kids. The constant running in and out, the tattling, etc. just works on me terribly.
I guess I got off topic there! That is so easy for me to do! Back to the sleep issue, for now I’m sleeping again. I will take it while I can get it. It just usually doesn’t last long enough, however.
