Insomnia 09-30-2011 - 04:30 AM
Well, I went ahead and decided to journal/blog how my life has officially changed. It is now 5:16am CST and I have been awake since YESTERDAY 10am! I don't understand it! After last night's chat I started feeling those sharp twinges of pain again and took my first percocet in almost a week! Hurt me to do so, but hubby said he couldn't have me in pain like that and after he said it, I was thinking to myself exactly who are you tryin to be brave for? NOBODY! So I went ahead and took the pill...that was just after midnight. I was reading "The Help" on my iPad and started to feel really woozy, but my dumb butt fought sleep like it was the enemy! Exactly what I was trying to prove to myself I have NO IDEA! I got up and did the and considered but said, that was too much! Now I am here on this darn laptop after taking a Tylenol PM waiting for sleep to enter my near future! SMH....I know....

I hadn't had problems LIKE this with insomnia before and was told that meds could be the problem. But I haven't had any in a week until tonite/this morning so I know it shoulda been waaaay out of my system by now...but doggone narcotics have a way of hanging around! I tweeted, hung around on FB and even got even more familiar with Hystersisters and even at one point hubby said "WHAT IN THE WORLD ARE YOU DOING?" I told him I couldn't sleep...he said

I just thought I would start my journey journaling and posting something daily (my goal) on how I feel and my progress on the road to recovery. My procedure was done on September 19th as an outpatient (in at 6am home by 5:30pm) and honestly looking at it all gas pains was my demon! I didn't bleed AT ALL except maybe a streak (not enough to do damage to a pantyliner) from recovery to my room...and trying to do too much too soon has been a small problem for me. As an asthmatic, shortness of breath really irritates me but should be something I am used to and I really hate missing my boys soccer games (season started the day after my surgery) but I am aiming to see a game next week! So at 1 1/2 weeks post op....I think I am handling it all pretty good and taking it all in stride!


October isawarness month!

Barren, you are too funny! I thought about you as I was doing this journal and I said "oh she will get a kick outta this". Lol

TangoRomeo I read your entries too! I love them! I laugh with you and I cry with you like I am right there with you! You both will definitely have some laughs, tears and frustration along the way with my blog!

Thanks ladies!
