Terrible Sleeps

Friday night's sleep was better than Thursday's but last night was horrid. Went to bed around 8:30 and woke up at 12:30 am and just about every hour till about 7:00 this morning. The night was filled with intense dreams and intense breathing. It's not like ... oh I can't sleep, I'll just get up ... it felt like I had run a marathon in my sleep.

Because of the awful sleep, I didn't want to do much of anything this morning but lay on the couch. I didn't want to move a muscle, I didn't want to talk to anyone ... every movement and sound was annoying. I ended up dozing off a couple of times. I just got up and took a couple of Tylenol for my head. Hopefully that will help.

I really think it's the withdrawal from Tuesday's chemo and steroids ... and I hate it. YUK!

I know all too well about the sleepless nights. That for me, is when I love to sit quietly and read blogs, or just listen to soft music. I hope you feel better soon*! Thinking of you, Ashley*

As you well know theses bad days will pass and good days will follow. Here's to once again having that first good cup of coffee outside in the fresh air.

Hi Daria,
I'm sorry to hear that you haven't been sleeping well. It's really nerve-wracking when that happens... I'm thinking of you, and hoping that tonight will bring you more rest.

I so sorry that you have to go through this crud!
I have been having trouble sleeping too, these past few weeks.
I've been drinking a glass of wine and sometimes it helps and sometimes not! Grrrr
Hugs to you my friend!

Daria,

I'm sorry to feel you're not getting enough rest. Chemo stinks. You will get through it though. You are a remarkable woman. I can tell it from what you write. Thinking of you. God bless and take care of yourself. Hugs from a cancer sister,

I've had those nights, and those horrible wasted days after those nights.

Hope you get a better sleep tonight.
