Good Evening…or Morning…? So it is close to 1am and I am still nowhere near sleepy. Instead, I feel like I’ve been hit with a frying pan and slowly becoming a zombie.
This is the second night IN A ROW… I have been suffering from insomnia.
While last night I wasn’t doing much. Instead I just laid wide awake in bed. Tonight I have decided to be productive and finalize my schedule for this week and next week. As well, I have done a bit of paperwork, email cleanups and now I am writing this blog.
Some people say it could be Fibromyalgia, as insomnia is one of the many symptoms.
But to me, Endometriosis and (about to be) getting my period has actually been a correlation in the past of my insomniac events.
One thing in particular for this time around, is for the past two weeks straight I have been taking a shit ton of pain killers and now I am not sure if it is the period/endo or what.
Friday night to Saturday morning I slept about 4.5 hours and then I was wide awake at 5:30am.
I only got home Saturday night at 10:30 pm and I was up until 4 am the next morning and slept maybe 2 hours on and off. That night I also took sleeping medication that my body fought off and it did not help.
And now Sunday night no sleep. It is Monday 1 am, and I am still awake with no intention of sleeping anytime soon.
I notice it is affecting me. While I do have a lot on my mind and trying to make drastic changes for the greater-the exhaustion has put a damper on the mentality. It has also increased fatigue. And my hormones are raging so I am less patient then usual. Now add this to the daily pain. I have pretty much become a walking zombie.
Do any of you suffer from Insomniac Events? What are your links? And what do you do to help it?
