day 2 vacation

Wednesday, September 19, 2012

day two of my mini vacation... sleep pattern way off... no alarm... but only sleeping 2-3hrs at a time.. i tried sleeping this afternoon... late and was up 3hrs later... yesterday i had a friend suggest a few things to help me sleep... i do have sleep apnea and use cpap machine... but only when i am sleeping in bed... sometimes i nap on sofa.. without it.... it was also suggested that i sleep i n a dark quiet room... no phone... i have a phone in bedroom but ringer is off.. we do have cell phones but not in bedroom..i use eye mask to keep things dark... the only thing i still have a problem with is keeping the tv on at low volume.. it drowns out the little noises bird likes to chirp/talk around 3pm.. neighbors with noisy cars. .. lawn mowers.... boyfriend use to work nights also.. so he knows how important my sleep is.. the only time he wakes me up is for a phone call from a doctor... heading to bed now... and will try to get a good night sleep for a change...

    I am so like you...sleeping 2 to 3 hours at a time...most days that's all I get. I am suppose to use the cpap machine but I end up not using it....because I wake up with my nose frozen. I love dark places but end up falling asleep during the day...and the phone keeps me up...along with all the movement in my house. Vacations are not any better. I just came home from a week in Florida...hoping I would get some rest. Unfortunately I ended up having bad dreams each night I was there. Since I have been back home the dreaming has left me thank goodness. I wish you the best of luck.
