I’m in Texas and week before last was the brutal winter storm(s) that came in and basically shut our state down for about 4-5 days. We might have had one day of sunshine since? So, today, the sun is finally out in full force and well, we’re happy!
I mean I’m sitting in my classroom and not outside, which is too bad. But, at least I have big windows and the sun is streaming in. That makes everything better!
I’m still dealing with sleep issues. It’s ridiculous. Maybe I am getting a more sleep every other night, but who knows. Last night, I was able to go to sleep with no issues about 9:45……but then my eyes popped open at 3:30 and here we are. Alarm at 5 a.m. Barely able to keep my eyes open, I am here at work.
If this was happening just one night, I could manage, but this sort of thing has been going on for a few months now. Most of of the time, I can go right to sleep, but I wake up at 2 or 3 a.m.. Sometimes, I’m able to go back to sleep and sometimes not. It’s all catching up with me.
I think I think I have tried most of the sleep hacks out there, but I am so open. It’s getting to where I have to leave work early because I can’t function well once I hit about 2 p.m. or I am just taking a day off to try and recover.
I never had issues with sleep before Lyme disease and Chronic Fatigue. But since those started up……I have had several cycles of bad insomnia. No fun at all!
Not sleeping exacerbates all kinds of other symptoms, especially fatigue and brain fog. My doctor has put me on anti-virals and hormone replacement and I am really, really hope these help and soon. Fingers crossed!
Just a couple more class periods to teach and I can head out into the sunshine. I hope your day is going well. – B
