When I was working, I got very little sleep. I had to wake up very early in the morning, and I always fought to get to sleep early so I could get a decent amount of sleep, but I usually was too wound up and unable to get good rest during the week. On the weekend, I'd often sleep very late, my husband would shut the bedroom door and be very quiet not to wake me.Well, those I have checked I have had for several years. Though I am sure they have worsened over time. I marked insomnia...which is a newer ailment for me. Possibly because I am less active.
OK. Thanks for the clarification. That means that I often have insomnia. I do know that I am very glad to not be working now, because it would not be fair to an employer who is paying me for 8 hours work to not get that from me as I drag through those days when I don't get a good night's sleep.
I do that exact same thing with the PT...as soon as I know all the exercises I don't go any more, I just do them at home ( incidentally my PT is not on the NHS and so therefore I have to pay out of pocket for her, so after about 3 appointments that's it, I'll save my money and do them at home)I have very achy legs and knees due to spinal neuropathy and having torn the meniscus around my knee when I fell off a ladder several years ago. I have sleep issues which is part my fault because of reading to all hours of the night. Ambien works wonders. I'm to old to care if I'm hooked on the stuff.
I have high blood pressure which I try to control by not stressing about things I can't change, watching my salt intake as well as weight.
I have some dental issues which I take care of as they occur. If I get a toothache it gets pulled. No messing around trying to save roots and whatever else they recommend to make money.
Hearing aids are my major expense. The prices are so inflated but not much I can do about that.
I've been to PT several times and quit when I learn all the exercises. Medicare pays but hate running over there 3 times a week to preform like a monkey doing the same exercises.
This probably sounds strange coming from a former nurse but the medical profession isn't what it use to be.
I'm doing well on my own, I know there will come a time when I'll need some medical help but right now I'm doing it my way.
Interesting, I'm going to have to look into that. I keep getting up between 3 and 5 am wide awake, stay up a few hours then go back to bed until about 9 or 10 am. I don't know if my CPAP has anything to do with it.
Strange. I thought that they encouraged use for help with insomnia, if they’d diagnosed you with sleep apnea.I don't know if my CPAP has anything to do with it.
