Sleep

Postby emily73 » Sat Apr 16, 2011 1:52 am

Me again, yep now I have found u all I will drive u mad. Not really.
What is with this fatigue drives me insane, I have downloaded a sleep relaxation app on my phone.
I must admit I am a light weight and in bed by 10 pm most of the time with this app asleep by 11pm, then wide awake 2 hrs later.
Does anyone have any tips??

Sleep

Postby lrgatrell88 » Sat Apr 16, 2011 2:20 am

Well I haven't been to bed yet.last night I didn't fall asleep till one and was awake again by 3. I used to find lavender helped me sleep but think that perhaps I have become immune to it. Lol. I am currently icing my sons birthday cake. Was too I'll to do it earlier and as I can't sleep thought I wud get it done. Lol.

The gps can prescribe sinfully to make u sleep better. I'm current on 125 mg of pregablin/ lyrica but it's not working.

Hope u get some sleep soon xxx

I feel really stupid my husband was taken into hospital tonight. I could be in bed have a good sleep not having to listen to him crying out in pain.Sorry u won't know my husband has been suffering 4 a long time. Think he is worse than i am. Although he keeps telling me 2 go rest. sorry not making much sense. We have had a terrible time lately with him in pain and with me having 2 get up in the middle 2 help him out to toilet or 2 change his bed. I have 2 say sorry again my husband has bladder problems has a suprapubic catheter in but not getting proper care it is a total nightmare. He gets one infection after another. I know i made a mistake 2 lines up i ment middle of night.
Aright suppose i would need go now. just think when i sign of im on my own :crazy:

I have no idea what's going 2 happen with my husband don't think it will b good. Knowing u guys r out there means a lot.

:grouphug: Hope 2 hear from u soon.

Hi Mary
Try to get some sleep when your hubby sleeps, i know you have been having a rough time with both of you having health problems but you must try to get as much rest as you can otherwise you will make yourself worse and wont be of any help. :hugs:
I know it cant be easy for you putting your pain aside and looking after your hubby.

You know you have us here to help support you. take it easy Mary. :hugs: :flowers:

Hi Mary you arent ever alone now, but Shaz is right you need to get some rest while you can is your hubby still in hospital at the moment, if he is maybe they'll help him with his care and get these infections under control for him, if he's not and is back at home how about calling your GP and asking for a home visit maybe he needs a district nurse to come and help and your GP will be able to help with that. Sending you some gentle :hugs: :hugs: :hugs: :hugs: :hugs: :flowers: :flowers: :flowers:

A few more :grouphug: :grouphug: :grouphug: :grouphug: :grouphug: :grouphug: :grouphug: :grouphug: for you Mary. There isn't much more I can add to what has already been said. Hubby is in the best place at the moment. Try not to feel too guilty about having some rest and sleep time for yourself.

Hi Mary, :grouphug: :grouphug: :grouphug: :grouphug: :grouphug: :grouphug: :grouphug: :grouphug: :grouphug: :grouphug:
You will never be alone being on here. I have been going through a rough patch lately & everyone on here have been a tremendous support to me when i have felt really down i just pop on here & all the kind messages really cheer me up its just so nice having lovely people thinking of you :flowers: :flowers: :flowers:

On the sleep subject i have sleep apnea & am on a Cpap & have been for 11/12 years so i never get great quality sleep :crazy: the doc recently prescribed me sleeping pills which i'm not really allowed because of sleep apnea but due to the stress i'm going through just now i wasn't sleeping at all so he gave me them short term. I have to say i am getting a sleep still not great but better :) & i started my pregablin today so :fingerscrossed: my pain will ease a bit :clap: I am getting relatives from abroad (2 lots) coming to stay with me at end of the month so i hope i'm feeling able to cope :yikes: i'm a bit worried about it but have decided 1 thing....i am not cooking! trying to work out whats going to be least stressful for me :crazy: .......open to any ideas!! :tongueout: :tongueout: :tongueout:

I don't think they'd eat Milo's food would they Sue?? :lol: :lol:

Depending on what sort of food you're after, is there a local bistro, pub, restaurant or somewhere that would be able to do most of the prep and deliver stuff to you, with the final touches just needed to finish things off. When an elderly neighbour of my parents found cooking difficult, she found a local cafe did a meals-on-wheels type thing and would deliver a meal to those who ordered them. It was all home-cooked, decent tasting stuff. Just a thought that might help with catering for the visitors :dunno: :dunno: :dunno:

Hey Flup :wave: Milo's food not too bad he gets chicken veg & Pasta (he can be a bit fussy) :tongueout: :tongueout: :tongueout: :tongueout: :tongueout: :tongueout: :tongueout: :tongueout: :tongueout: :tongueout: he also likes scrambled egg & toast for breakfast now & then :clap: I dont mind cooking for my hairy bairn but visitors....Bah!! :yikes:
we have a few pubs that do meals an Indian & a chinese takeaway & a really good Fish & chip shop :wink: Then if they want to go into the city there is huge choice! Of course because they are "canny Scots" a large part of their diet is lquid :wine: so there will be alot of that flowing freely :twodrinking1: :beer: :wine: :twodrinking1: :beer: :wine: :twodrinking2: :twodrinking2: :twodrinking2: :twodrinking2:
