Day 29/Bummer of a day, but I got Sleep!

Monday, September 16, 2019

At the cost of being groggy all day, I got sleep last night. Which meant I went back to bed as soon as my kids left to catch the bus, which meant that I didn't take my morning meds on time. So, I ended up with a killer of a migraine. Which meant I ended up back in bed. I've been up since before the kids got home, with said migraine steadily getting worse.

I feel totally bummed. I wanted to do so much today. Work out. Eat right. Do a meal plan... the list just goes on, but unless I get enough sleep, and with a med that doesn't' make me super groggy, my day is hosed. Don't get me wrong, though I woke up several times during the night, I went back to bed, and it was music to my ears to hear my alarm go off and me still be asleep... then fall right back asleep and startle awake 9 minutes later!! I managed to get DH's and ODD's lunch made. YDD had a field trip and a free lunch was served. Which was apparently horrible, she ate as soon as she got home. We had planned to work out shortly after they got home, but working out with a migraine is a horrible idea. They could have still worked out, but this is something we are doing together and they wanted me to do it with them. I've taken my pain med, but not the med that actually makes the migraine go away, it's something I have to take and lay down or it just doesn't work right, at least not for me.

I've got to get this sleep thing under control before the 5% Challenge kicks off for Fall!! I'm so excited, this is my first one and I really want to do good!! But, not only that, it can be dangerous for my mental health for my sleep to be disrupted for too long. Thank goodness I got some sleep last night, but I was way too groggy today, I can't handle being groggy all day. But, DH says that to stick with it for now. He'd rather me get some sleep and not end up in the hospital and be groggy all day and get nothing done. Appointment is Thursday, I think I'll keep it so that we can try something else by that time I should be safe enough from the danger of being hospitalized. Just gotta get to where I can muscle my way through doing more during the day for a few days.

I've more to write, but I'm so tired and need to just give in and go to bed emoticon

So, good night all, I'm happy to say I know I'll get some sleep, I just hope I'm not as groggy tomorrow!!

    I have prescription sleeping pills that made me feel that way too. I cut them in half and just take half a pill. Works great! Still get sleep but can wake up for work in the morning. Best wishes!
