My Fitbit said I slept for 1 hour and 43 minutes. Â So I got up, had some grapes and took some medication to ease the pain a bit hopefully. Â I had been getting good at sleeping mostly through the night except for the odd pee break. Â The not sleeping was one of my symptoms in the very beginning that I attributed to shift work but now I know it’s my illness. Â The funny or not so funny thing is I will sleep for two days straight two or three days in a week. Â Maybe it’s because I’m coming out of a two-week long migraine. Â I don’t know but nothing seems to have any rhyme or reason with chronic illnesses.
I’ve had a strange pain my right foot like I used to have before I had surgery on both my feet in January of 2015. Â I went to the Podiatrist today and she’s recommended an X-ray to see if one of the screws from the fusion has moved. Â So added call family doctor for X-ray, massage prescription and the mammogram that hasn’t been scheduled yet. Â Thankful for my planner and my iPhone with Suri adding reminders for me. Â If I don’t add them right away, it’s gone, like poof and I don’t get it back. Â Fibro Fog and Lupus Brain Fog are true issues.
The Featured Image is an antique bench I found at the flower store I popped into between two doctor’s appointments. Â The bench was what I wanted for that spot when I realized that the pupalups really liked just standing there and watch the world go by and the mailman comes by. Â I saw a photo on a local antique place for a a similar bench but my sister in law said she didn’t see it that day. Â So seeing the bench in the display drapped with pillows was just what I wanted. Â I asked, the called the owner and the owner said it needed work because it was unsteady. Â The price was $50.00 and I said YES. Â My hubby is a hobby woodworker and I know he can make it steady for human seating. Â I called the boys and they came to pick it up and brought it home while I went to my next doctor appointment. Â I consider it a bigger win because my hubby liked it and said he can fix it.
Still waiting for word on when I go to the nerologist but I have a the new massage prescription. Â I’ve called and made the reservation for my car to be serviced next week. She’s not impressed at having to get up at 8am but she can come back home to sleep, she’s a teen and they sleep well. Â Now if I could sleep like the teen and the pupalups. Yeah, who am I kidding because that’s not happening.
How much sleep do you get during a normal night as opposed to a flare?
