Thursday, day 5: Just for today.

Friday, August 16, 2013

I get restless when I feel overly tired. I get something to eat, which wakes me up. I'm desperate to sleep, but I'm afraid to. Well, there really are reasons. The process of falling asleep is not a pleasant one for me. I have PLMD (Periodic Limb Movement Disorder), and normally when I start to drift off to sleep my whole body jerks, which feels like an electric shock running through my body.

I used to see a neurologist, who prescribed drugs for this, but then I started controlling it with iron pills. I don't think the iron is working anymore, but I don't know if I'm up to trying to find another neurologist to prescribe pills that I don't want to take anyway.

I knew I shouldn't try to blog after my bedtime. But it beats grabbing a fistfull of corn chips.

Oh, I almost forgot; SV today. Although my home scale is still telling me I've only lost 16 lb, my doctor's scale says I've lost 18 lb. YAY!

    Sorry about the issues of falling asleep but I do like your doctor's scale numbers. WTG!
