Oh my Gods, I finally did it!!
Yesterday I was just beyond exhausted. I couldn’t settle to anything and quite literally every single movement HURT!! And it was as though I had lead weights in every limb.
It wasn’t helped by a very sudden and unexpected asthma attack that would not go away. Thank the starry skies for our home nebuliser!! It doesn’t get used very often but it serves it’s purpose of “just in case”.
I am pretty sure that my exhaustion and weakness plus the lead weights in my muscles are what made the asthma so scarily persistent. You do, after all, use all those torso muscles to physically force your breath in and out your lungs when the asthma prevents it being an automatic process. At least thats how it feels. And muscles fatigued by FM and lack of sleep are not efficient!!
But it did mean I had the shakes for a good couple of hours afterwards thanks to the salbutamol. Just a bit more dysfunction for my muscles to cope with
So yesterday was just a day to get through. Although my lovely daughter did bring me some chocolate, which always helps……anything 😀
I did have 3 very short naps of less than an hour each time. By 7.30pm I was desperate to sleep even though dinner was cooking. I was woken with a bowl of fragrant and very delicious Greek pasta just after 8.00 but by midnight was thinking “Damn! I’m not sleepy anymore!” I mean…..seriously, HOW is that even possible after almost no sleep for more than 2 days??? WTF???
I looked at my clock at 10 past 1 in the morning………….and next thing I know I am coming to at just after 7am 😀
Bedroom curtains open still, bedside light on, still in the exact same position LOL
But that’s what? 6 whole hours!!!
And I had a dream! Vampire cats and Benedict Cumberbatch!!
No, I have no idea why, either LOL
6 hrs is not a lot. But it’s a good start. And it feels like a miracle 😀
I might even get some writing done today.
But first…….COFFEE!!! Because I missed it yesterday!!
