It Was A Dark And Gloomy Day

Friday, August 17, 2012

It certainly was all that this morning but the sun came out later and it was a perfect day in the mid 70s. Unfortunately, I was too sick to enjoy it.

I'm having trouble sleeping again. Tuesday night was dismal but I still needed to do my shopping and errands on Wednesday. It was hot and I was miserable. Sweaty. I went to the post office, bank, newspaper office, Wal-mart, Aldi, and Kroger. Got home at 2 and put it all away. I was wasted. I didn't need much food so I'm not sure how I ended up buying so much.

Thursday I had another really bad day in every way. Didn't sleep. Stressed. Felt terrible. Could not eat. We finally got rain though. Unfortunately it was accompanied by super high winds that tore a lot of stuff up - like one of my big dogwood trees which is broken in half. And, it tore up my hummingbird feeder, bird baffle, and who knows what else. I haven't checked yet.

Third day with minimal sleep. I feel terrible and have dozed off and on but I can't sleep during the day. I have some G.I. problems with the MRSA now. Tired and sluggish. Tomorrow will be better.

    Sure hope you are doing better now. I am just getting back to reading blogs since having my brain surgery on Aug. 16. Will read yours as I pray that you are dong well. Did your son go to Cleveland/Akron and have a good time?
Blessing and hugs,

    Oh so sorry that you are having GI issues! Oh man that's the pits! Hope you feel better and get some rest. I know how it is when you don't get those number of hours you are use to and you feel so tired and runned down. I am a zombie if I don't get at least 5 hours of sleep so I can comiserate. Take care and will pray that things get better for you.

    So glad your dog house was alright in all that bad weather......ha

I so know what you mean. I have terrible insomnia all the time. You can find me on here at all hours of the night.

But what has changed that is messing with your sleep? Have you tried catnip tea? A friend told me about it and WOW it works wonders. Even lavendar in any form will help you relax.

I will be praying for you and I am so glad your not hurt due to the storms and remember things can always be replaced. Here in Arkansas we seem to be having the same kind of weather. Be safe.

    Bless your heart. I wish there was something I could do to help you. I will pray for sleep for you tonight as I go to bed. I'm really hoping you get some much-needed sleep. Take it easy...let DH and DS help and support you so you can recover. Hope you have a good weekend...and don't find too much damage from the winds. Take care. Thanks for the encouragement! Spark on! emoticon

    "M" I sure do hope you are feeling better soon. I know very little about MRSA, I know they tested DH for it when he had the finger episode. The culture was negative. It has unfortunately flared up again . He does have an appointment with his Dr on Thursday so we will go to see what she has to say.
Do you ever go to see a Doctor with this or do you know all about it. HUGS Pat I hope you are feeling better soon. emoticon emoticon emoticon for reading my blogs

    First I hope you feel better soon. I know how frustrating it is not to be able to sleep well. It drains all your energy.

The storms had pretty much fizzled out by the time they reached KY. We just had lots of rain, not much else.
