Oh Lily, I am mortified to think I was whingeing about my sleep issues. You are one hell of a woman, and mother. Be proud of yourself for your continuing “stick it where the sun don’t shine” attitude to your ills.
Claudette, I thank you. 🙂
Sleep issues are a terrible thing. They can affect our every waking moment, from performing tasks to cognitive skills, so no need to be mortified. A small sleeping issue can turn into a major one, so whinge all you want. 🙂
Nope, I needed a wake-up call (how ironic!).
My sister has acute obstructive sleep apnea (or whatever the hell the medical term is) and basically suffocates herself 108 times on average a night, and is waiting for her CPAP, and also has chronic insomnia – and here I am whingeing about a short-term sleep/wake balance shortfall.
I’m climbing out of my wallow.
Jeez, I have sleep apnea but nowhere near as bad as your sister. 4 times on average is frightening enough! Glad that she’s getting a CPAP machine. My friend has one but doesn’t use it because it’s “too noisy,” then complains that she’s had no sleep!
Nothing wrong with a little bit of wallowing. I do it often. The trick is not to get stuck in it. 🙂
Was just thinking that this morning. Wallowing can improve your skin tone, rid you of parasites and keep you from getting sunburned (well, if you are a hippo) but if you stay in it forever you just look grubby 🙂
