Precious Sleep

January 30, 2013

I feel rested and so much better.  I slept 8 hours last night and 5 the night before.  Hopefully I am getting back to my “normal” sleep pattern.  Even though the weather change has me achy today it is much better to handle with enough sleep.  I wish you a blessed day!!

Where Did my Sleep Go?

January 28, 2013

I have only been sleeping 3 to 4 hours a night for the last week and not sure why.  Could it be that the lumbar epidural injection from the 7th of this month is causing it, could it be that my sleeping pill has quit working, or WHAT???  Even before getting sick with Severe Fibromyalgia my body required 8+ hours of sleep.  Since getting Fibro I need 9 to 12 hours of sleep each night.  Normally the steroid from the epidural injections will make me more energetic a few days and I might not sleep well a night or two soon after, but nothing like this.  I feel like a walking zombie.  I can’t even take a nap during the day right now.  Could it be that my sleeping pill (Ambien CR) has quit working, is it the steroids from the epidural injections, or WHAT??  Whatever it is I am so ready to get back to “normal” and get some precious rest.  What are your thoughts?

Tattoo of Love

Our middle son, Tyler, surprised me today with a tattoo that he got on his arm. It is the purple fibro ribbon on a cross because he said “through Jesus that he hoped there would be a cure for fibromyalgia someday”. It was so touching – yes, I cried my eyes out. I agree, hopefully through Jesus someday there will be a cure.

2012 Blog Of The Year Award

Yes – that’s right – there are stars to collect!

Unlike other awards which you can only add to your blog once – this award is different!

When you begin you will receive the ‘1 star’ award – and every time you are given the award by another blog – you can add another star!

There are a total of 6 stars to collect.

Which means that you can check out your favourite blogs – and even if they have already been given the award by someone else – you can still bestow it on them again and help them to reach the maximum 6 stars!

‘Blog of the Year 2012’ Award Badges

Here are the six badges for you to collect – you can either ‘swop’ your badge for the next one each time you are given the award – or even proudly display all six badges if you are lucky enough to be presented with the award six times!
