Up all night and it wasn’t a party

Up all night and it wasn’t a party

ALL NIGHT!!! I may have slept for twenty minutes at the most. I know at some point my dogs started playing with each other like it was the afternoon. One of them was sick, I was cleaning up my floor at wee hours of the morning. I was crying because when I’m that tired and can’t sleep I get very frustrated and cranky.  I can’t take not sleeping. It’s just the worst thing that could happen t me. It’s this…

Emotional freedom technique

Emotional freedom technique

This is actually a reblog of mine. I used tapping for weight loss and self esteem issues some time ago. I must admit, I haven’t been doing it at all lately, but I know it’s a great tool. I’ve been having problems sleeping. I’ve been waking up almost every hour. I can’t stress how important sleep is with MS, or any chronic condition for that matter, and I’m not getting enough. In my email today was an article about tapping…

Counting spoons

I’ve been up since 4am, listening to old episodes of Cheers, while I laid in bed praying I’d fall back asleep. Even Zoey and Marshy were snoring away, but not me, I just laid there, hour after hour. I finally gave up at around 7:30 and made coffee. I start each day with a certain amount of steam in me that fizzles as the day goes on. How much steam I start with can vary everyday. I read on a…

I went to physical therapy this morning and I’m a little wiped out and it’s only 11:00am but that’s ok I’m happy. I’m…

Cyber crash Monday-Happy Halloween

Cyber crash Monday-Happy Halloween

ok maybe not a cyber crash but I’m taking a crash day. I’m going to go back to bed and recharge, regroup, refuel and recoup.  I haven’t done a full day where I spend the day in bed in a long time but I think I need to today. I went to bed super early last night and I’ve been up since 2:30am. I let thoughts take over that shouldn’t be plaguing my thoughts anymore. No matter what I did…

Lack of sleep, fatigue and MS

Lack of sleep, fatigue and MS

It was one of those nights. I was up all night. I had a little bellyache. I ate Chinese food, I never eat Chinese food.  My belly didn’t agree with the Chinese food. Instead of going into the details of why I was going on all night let’s discuss the details of sleep. The average American sleep 6.8 hours a night. The average MS patient probably needs a good 12 hours a night.  I’m willing to bet they don’t get…
