So I’m saying this in hopes I do not jinks myself.  I think my sleeping issues have somewhat been solved.  When I went to the pulmonologist (sp??) last week, of course like every other doctor, I had to go through the list of medications I was taking.  He asked me when I was taking my “happy pills”.  He then told me, he thinks that may be the issue.  I was told when I was first prescribed them to take them at night, because it should make me drowsy.  I honestly can say being drowsy from these meds were NEVER an issue.  The Doc, told me to stop immediately and start taking them in the morning.  That was 1 week ago from tomorrow.  By golly, I think he solved my issue.  The past couple of nights, I still am having issues falling asleep, but once I’m asleep, I seem to be getting more restful sleep.  YEAH!  I’m waking up, somewhat refreshed, not extremely tired like a week ago, and the past two days, not only have I been more awake during the day, HOLY CRAP – I feel like a whole new person.  I have ENERGY, and I’ve been so friggin HAPPY!  Like almost in a giddy/annoying way.  Weird.  I’m not complaining because let me tell you, it sure as hell beats, the run down…exhausted…person I have been.  Now really, I don’t know if it is the switching of the time I take the pills or just a mind thing, but really whatever it is…I’LL TAKE IT!! 

Last week was EXTREMELY busy.  I was on the road pretty much all week for work.  BUT I had fun.  But the down part, I think I totally jinked myself or just wore myself too thin by stressing myself out and Friday-SUnday, I literally spent in bed, well ok on the couch.  I felt like complete crap!!  I had the head congestion, the nasally/sratchy throat, ears plugged to the point I thought I was underwater…I couldn’t hear.  I am finally feeling much better.  I’ve been taking every kind of cold/chest congestion medication I can find.  Personally, I’m an absolute WIMP when it comes to being sick.  I hardly am ever sick or not feeling well (although this past year has been a horrible/out of the ordinary year with all my medical, sickness issues) but when I am, I don’t want to do anything.  I don’t believe I “milk” it, but I literally want to do nothing when I’m not feeling well.

This week has been nuts as well.  I can’t believe it is Thursday already.  I’ve been teaching a living environment class.  Honestly, in high school, I absolutely LOVED living environment.  But teaching it 15 years later…dear god help me.  I’m finally getting the curriculm down and progress is being made.  The problem has been that I’ve been here/there and everywhere but at school it’s hard to keep the kids on track.  I’m hoping I’m staying put for a while. 

I honestly can’t believe it is almost November..where the hell did the time GO???

Wish me Luck….

So tomorrow I have to go to court.  Remember the incident with the guy at work?  Well now he’s pressing charges against my boss and I.  Fun! Fun!  I really do not want to see him at all.  I’m nervous, really nervous, I have no idea what to expect.  I know we (meaning my boss and I) did absolutely NOTHING wrong, so that part I’m ok with.  It’s the unknown.  It’s the question of do I have to testify? Will I have to take the stand?  Will I be questioned?  I have NO CLUE! 

The exciting part, it after that is all said and done, I’m going to visit this awesome blogger and her daughter.  I’m excited.  It’s been quite a while since I’ve hung out with them.  Plus I’m spending the It should be TONS of fun!! 

Well I’m off to read over all my crap for tomorrow…WISH ME LUCK!  I’ll keep you all informed!

This is getting so OLD!

I’ve been MIA the past couple weeks simply because I’m way too tired to write, think, or move for that matter.  I have a problem, I Can’t SLEEP and I don’t know why.  I think I’m slowly developing insomnia. Really, I do not know what the hell is wrong with me.  It’s a vicious cycle, and I so need it to end NOW!  I’m absolutely EXHAUSTED.  I wake up, I’m so tired, I can barely pull myself out of bed.  I think I’ve made it to work on time maybe 2, 3 days tops.  I’m dragging all damn day! I hate it!  I come home from work, and seriously some days, I have all I can do to drive home.  When I get home, I basically feel like I’m crawling to the couch to crash!  I take an hour nap, wake up, do work, maybe watch some tv, then head to bed.  Sleeping pills have become my friend, however THEY DON”T WORK!  I’ve been put on prescription sleeping pills, but seriously…I think my body is immune to them.  I toss and turn for a couple of hours, then when I do fall asleep, I’m restless.  I do not sleep soundly.  I wake up and look like I have had a fight with my bed.  Everything, every morning is on the floor (ie. my comforter, sheets, blankets, pillows) you name it, I’ve kicked or thrown it off the bed.  Last friday I had a doctor’s appointment, he recommended I go for a sleep study.  I dont know how long it will take to get me in.  I have an appointment with a pulminologist (SP?) next week.  I seriously can’t take this much more.  I’m so physically/emotionally drained and exhausted!  All I want to do is sleep, but I CAN”T!

Last night, I had a physical therapy appointment and a shrink appointment, it was a rough one.  No I don’t want to talk about it.  But lets just say I came home and my eyes were burning and swollen.  Again, I was so exhausted, I went to bed around 10pm.  I figured I didn’t need to take a pill to sleep because I was so tired. I get in bed, and my knee is absolutely throbbing/aching/and it is totally keeping me up.  I decided to forego the prescription pills, and take some tylenol pm.  Honestly, that did shit for me.  At 2:30 in the morning, I gave up the fight.  I came out to the couch, and got a little rest on and off.  4:30am wide awake!   All I want is to sleep soundly for 1 night!  I don’t think it is too much to ask.
