Yippee!! I won the

Wednesday, April 04, 2012

After all the whining about getting no sleep for the past two nights, I finally DID get some non-death dreams and slept fairly well,, only got up 6 times!!
That being said, I rise out of bed, get a birthday card in the mailbox for a dear friend, rush to work to start work at five a.m. It was a very hard day, I was actually supposed to be done with work at 9:45a.m., but another woman asked me if I would work for her until 1 p.m.... I need the $$ badly enough that I said yes..

I barely was standing, could hardly walk to my car after work I hurt so much..
I drive home, walk in the door and DD asks me why I went into work early!! Wha??????????

Every day my schedule is different, so I thought I was supposed to work 5-1,, no,no,no, I did not have to be in until 5:45 a.m.!!!!!!!

DINGDINGDING!!!! I win the dork of the day award for today!!!!!

no sleep

Tuesday, April 03, 2012

Okay, my dreams are escalating.. last night Mike Jackson(died over a year ago,right?) leased property out in the boonies for a concert he gave, yes, after he is already dead..
after the concert, everybody cleared everything out,, for some reason, I was last person there, along with one other guy who was in the porta potty like me,, ,, I came out, he came out of his, only to fine that Michael Jackson walked over to us and told us he wanted us dead, so he had a whole bunch of these mercenary guys building a 30 foot high wall around about 500 acres of land, complete with mines, booby traps, tripwires, lasers,etc,, he told us that before morning we would both be dead, that any attempt we made to disarm things or leave, would trip a bomb or something , to kill us,,
I woke up when the alarm went off, jumped about three inches off the bed, glad to be awake..
I am completely exhausted,, only got about five hours sleep in two nights,,

So, first I have a nightmare about being dead and struggling to jump through hoops to get to my final reward,, then the next one is about a dead guy trying to kill me. As bone-tired as I am, I am afraid to fall asleep tonight,, and I have an extra-long day tomorrow at work..
Obviously, the extra meditation did not help me,,

I think I am very anxious about all the returning paperwork and hoop-jumping or Veterans Affairs again for mom.. meeting with the financial planner again Thursday,,,

    Sounds like maybe the meds are causing hallucinations in your sleep. Sure hope that stops for you. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

    I sent this to you in a message as well:

It may sound silly, but anytime i am afraid to fall asleep, I say the Our father, the hail mary and Glory be over and over and over again until I fall asleep. I also have taken to wearing one of my many rosaries to sleep (I have one that i use specifically to sleep with). And under my pillow, I have a piece of cardboard with a prayer on each side. one side says" God is my savior, i will trust him and not be afraid, The Lord gives me power and strength, He is my savior"--I know this is from Isaiah, but I can't recall chapter and verse. the other ide of the card reads, "Behold the cross of the Lord. Flee ye hostile powers of darkness. The lion of the tribe of Judah, the root of David, has conquered. I wear the rosary every night (if I'm traveling and the rosary I have can't go overy head, I either wrap it in my hands or put it under my pillow). The prayers are what really get me to a peaceful night. I hope this helps!!

    You never told me you had a crush on Michael Jackson.

No more naps for you it's robbing you of your beauty rest. Meds can do it too as well as sweets late in the day including fruits.

bless your heart.

Did not sleep well last night:For the first time in my life, I could only dream about my death,, all night. I normally rise about five times in seven hours to use the bathroom. Every time I went back to bed, I started the dream where I left off before, until I was finally at the end of where I was supposed to be in heaven,, it was very stressful and scary for me..

This coming from a person who has already had a "death experience"..
I am hoping tonight will be better.. this dream shook me up so badly, I was distracted until about an hour before I left work...
I cannot wait to die, not exactly pushing it, but have no fear,, I am excited for it to happen when it does, I know and saw the area I will be in, what the main process is for real, but this dream was so detailed, so off the wall,, nothing like the real thing, that I did not want to go back to sleep, but needed the rest in order to work today!
and I could not stop it all night..

I think I will go into a deep meditation before I get under the covers tonight, maybe that will help...

    I found it confusing, too. If you are not afraid and looking forward, then why do you think it caused you such unhappiness and stress to dream about it? I went through a phase when I was young of obsessing about and fearing death. Then I had two dreams in which I did die. Both of them were joyful and reassuring for me. I've never felt fearful or apprehensive since then. I have always considered those two dreams a great gift. I hope you can overcome the stress involved in your dream experience.

    Did you nap yesterday or take ny pain pills? they can mess with your sleep patterns.

Being excited about dying? Hmmmmm That's scary.

    Do you mean that you are not afraid of dying - that your dream reassured you it was nothing to fear??? Your blog kind of freaked me out! So am a little curious.

A wintry day here, got my steps completed,, did some strength training also.. cannot wait to et outdoors in nicer weather,, maybe by July...

Finally tried a half pain pill as directed by my doc,, did nothing,, I tossed and turned all night, in pain,, now I have to wait until next weekend to take anotehr,, or I will never wake up for work all week,, this dosage is stronger than the previous one, so he suggested taking a half so I would not zonk out,, back to square one on that,,, oh well, I am just blessed I have meds, period...

    So sorry you are suffering. Hopefully the warm weather will get here quickly and that it will help some.

    I noticed that someone mentioned Fibromyalgia. If you are suffering with this, you might want to do a little reading about Gerson Therapy. Gerson has cured many cases of Fibromyalgia. Wouldn't it be great to not need any of those meds?

Best wishes to you,

Saturday, March 31, 2012

I noticed I had a low tire on my car yesterday running errands, so I rose early this morning and got in line first at Discount tire near my home. My wheel is getting corroded just form normal wear and tear,, guy said start thinking of maybe replacing it next time,,
My car is a 2006 Buick LaCrosse, started out with 19K miles on it,, Got it in 2007,, it now has 36K miles on it,, 17K miles in five years is not much,,, literally, the only $$ I have spent on it is a set of new tires three years ago and gas and oil changes.

WHen I told him I only put 17,000 miles on my car in over five years, he offered to buy my car!! He put 250,000 on hi s in three years!! This car is the best-made car I have ever owned,,, keeping it for awhile!! I am leaving to take more documentation to tax preparer for mom's taxes..Hope to finish this up today,,,
