When All Else Fails...

Sleep! That has been my motto for the past few days. We are back around to the wonderful time of the month where my endometriosis nearly kills me. I have managed to make it to every day at work, but have been crashing once I get home. Yesterday I actually came home at five, was in bed by five fifteen, and slept until nearly eleven...woke up STARVING so Nick went out and grabbed some dinner for us (poor thing had not eaten either...what would he do without me?) and then I went directly back to sleep.

This has been the basic outline for every night of the week (except I usually eat dinner first, so then I crash by eight and am gone for the night). A little sad, but I have to say it is working. As long as I can get all the way through the work day, I am okay with the rest of the evening being a bust. The only problem is when I sleep past when I need my next Lortab...then I wake up in tears and in terrible pain, but once I take it I can get back under control fairly fast.

So...the point of this post is to say that I am sorry I haven't posted in a couple of days, but clearly sleeping took priority. I should be back to normal with much more interesting things to talk about than my sleeping habits this weekend!

***Happy Friday the 13th! I just realized it was today...creepy....Should have had a good scary post ready, but you all know I am not one to think ahead like that****


  1. Well, I think it's just pitiful that you have to give up every evening to sleeping - but what are ya gonna do? I hope you are DVRing all the good shows. Have you thought about setting your alarm at the time you need your Loritab? It would be hard to be woken up, but you wouldn't wake up in pain. A worthwhile trade-off.

  2. yes, that really is a good idea. I have thought about it, but I never remember it when I am crashing. i need to make it a top priority before I let myself fall asleep.

    Thank God for my DVR...but how annoying was it that Grey's was a stupid highlight show rather than a new one!

  3. That sucks so bad! I'm so sorry that you have to deal with it! At least you have a system that works for you...
