SeptWriSo...in which I whine again...

These crazy days are going to be the death of me yet. I MUST adjust to the medication change. I have several things to do to get ready for Stephanie's surgery including many appointments but the brain fog and fatigue are getting me down. I can't sleep at night and can only sleep during the day. Don't suggest staying up all day because that doesn't work. I just get almost no sleep (2 to 3 hours in 48 hours time) and am hell on wheels to live with. I don't know what to do. :-P

Well, the little dog was too funny tonight. She had gone to sleep in my chair as usual(she doesn't sleep there all night just for a few hours) but I wanted to sit in the chair. Well, she didn't want to move. I can't pick her up because of my back so we had a little tete a tete but I won. As I sat in the chair she sat on my lap giving me the most pathetic hang dog looks that you can imagine. Oh, she was pitiful, pitiful, pitiful! Those sad eyes kept staring at me wondering why I would wake up a sleeping little dog just to sit in my own chair.

I reminded her of all of the times she woke Steffie and I up with her barking, ear flapping(no she does not have mites she has seen the vet), dish rattling and general orneriness. Little dog could have cared less that she wakes one or both of us up every night. She was just sad about it that she had been disturbed tonight.

There were some hurtful and upsetting things that happened today. I have been having a difficult week. I brought part of it on myself which makes me more upset than anything else but I am ready for things to "simmer down now, simmer down." (from SNL, if you didn't know). Here is a URL to the clip...it just made me smile. The sound isn't great and the picture is tiny but it is still a fun watch.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hSbBF45q0cI

Tomorrow we will be running some errands maybe I will have something more interesting to blog about, maybe not! Until then...

Ciao!

Lawdy-lawdy! You have a medication change, you can't sleep, AND you're getting ready for Steffie's surgery?!

Do you think you're not sleeping because of the medication change or the stress from Steffie's upcoming surgery or both? Or better yet, and I'm begin facetious, is your insomnia just a gift all on its own?
(N.B., No suggestions to sleep during the day. I know you have your own schedule, so I'm not even going to go there.) Getting two to three hours in 48 doesn't cut it. Egad. It's a little scary, actually.

Now that I think of it, though, your pain would be a good enough reason for insomnia. I wish I could help, but I know you've probably tried all the methods available to you.

I'm sorry you had a hurtful, upsetting day yesterday. If you're into astrology at all, I'd suggest you check out this week in the stars and hunker down until Sunday.

Critters are funny, aren't they? You know I don't have a chair or a sofa, right? When I'm getting ready to sit on my bed, I'll find Meeks stretched the length of just the spot I want to lay my fanny. And she'll give me this look, not quite grumpy, but just a little irritated, as if to say, "Seriously? You want me to move? Now? I just got comfortable!" If she could harrumph, I'm sure she would.

I hope you have a better day today. <3

Mer, I will start with saying I have had a much better day today. At least so far. LOL!!!!

Now, are you ready to bang your head on the wall about the medication change issues? First, in case you don't remember I have all kinds of weird reactions to medication. You must know and remember this. Okay, my gabapentin was increased to 3600 mg a day which is the maximum dose of gabapentin. Now, here comes the rub and the head banging part. Gabapentin makes me sleepy during the day it knocks me for a loop but I take the same dose at night WITH OTHER MEDICATIONS THAT MAKE ME SLEEPY but I still cannot go to sleep, even when I have stayed up all day. Don't hurt yourself. I have really bad insomnia anyway, I think I wrote you about my sleep doctor the other day but the pain is exacerbating it and the gabapentin during the day is making it almost impossible to function at all during the day but at night I can function...too bad I don't live in a city that never sleeps including the medical clinics I have to visit and etc. I swear I feel like I am trapped in a crazy dream sometimes.

Meekers trick is like one that Miss Jezzi Lou Who pulls on Steffie all of the time. Our cats were notorious for doing the same thing. I hate that you don't have a chair you can sit in. It is hard to just have a bed to sit on. Been there, done that!

Hugs,

Ardee-ann
