insomnia has hit!

I have read on here all the women with the insomnia issues. I had the opposite problem all I wanted to do was sleep and avoid people. Well here I am 29 hours from surgery and I can't sleep and feel super lonely. Wishing all those people who wanted to visit were here now. I'm sure it is the surgery that has me awake. I don't feel worried about it. I am actually a peace with it. I have been cleaning and organizing all night its almost like the nesting instinct. do maybe I'm not really at peace?!?

Hi Tracee!
I think you are at peace, but there are underlying nerves that working on overtime too. I was the exact same before my surgery. I was just too darned excited to be done with it and be pain free, that I couldn't sleep either. The day of the surgery though, I was a nervous wreck. Don't be afraid to speak up to the people around you for support.
If I can offer any additional advice, it would be not to hesitate to ask people to come see you after your surgery. Honestly, I expected far more visitors then I actually had (8 total) in 2 weeks. A good chunk of my friends said that they wanted to call and come see me, but they wanted to give me time to rest. It was so frustrating to hear that because I'm a very social person. Every time I had a visitor, I felt better. I felt stronger & more positive about myself and my recovery.
I wish you the best and if you need to chat, let me know!

Re: insomnia has hit!

Thank you Megs for your reply. you shared wonderful words of encouragement.

I'm sure it is that I'm excited also to get it over with and start feeling better. It has been exceptionally hard because I encouraged my hubby to not take time off as he just got a new job promotion before Christmas and he works out of state. I regret that decision now because I didn't realize how this was going to affect me. Having him would give me comfort now :-i( He comes home February 1st. by then I hope to be feeling a little better. It was a hard decision for us to make and some people think its the wrong one. But it made the most sense to us. I guess that's what matters.

he will be home for 10 days and at least that break will be a more coherent one for me lol. I tell myself this too shall pass. I feel better now just talking about it all. Thanks for listening.

You're welcome Tracee!
You aren't going to be alone after your surgery, are you? What type of surgery are you having?
Going back to what you said about feeling alone. I'm sorry you feel that way, but I completely understand. You are going through this "now" and while you have friends or aquaintences who have been through it too, you need to be able to turn your emotions somewhere where "now" is happening. That somewhere is this site!
I'm sure it's hard not to have your hubby around. Just think that by the time Feb. rolls around, you will be able to walk (or shuffle) up to him, throw your arms around his neck, and give him the best homecoming hug ever! He will be coming home to a new you. One with light in her eyes and color in her face!
