Insomnia…again

OK, I’m getting pretty darn sick of not s l e e p i n g.  It makes me weird, or weirder and it makes me cranky. And I tend to do little menial things that no one in their right mind would do if they had the time.  Like getting the dirt out of the bottom cracks in the designs on kitchen cabinets with q-tips?  No one ever does that.  So if you can’t sleep, and you’ve sworn off of picking up the computer (thereby probably blowing your chances of any sleep at all) put the q-tips down and back away.  Back away from the q-tips.  I wonder how many hits this is going to get from people with ear issues who are Googling q-tips.  Then they get this, and their like, I can’t stand to read her, it’s a good thing my ears are messed up, could you imagine having to have to listen to her?? ahhhhh hahhh.  I’m going to put on some coffee.  Then I don’t know what.  Maybe I’ll take some pics of the snow!  It snowed here last night and just a bit stuck.

Until next time (after a nap)

  1. You’re very welcome, laughter being the best medicine and all that… :)
    Right now it is 3:42 am, and as you can see I’m still awake, grrrrr. So frustrating! At least I’m not cleaning. I’m not. i swear.

  2. Hey Carrie,
    Thanks for the info about the coffee. Who knew that you could say coffee and cocaine in the same sentence and the two would have anything in common?? Scary. Yep, I do drink to much Pepsi that’s for sure, I need to cut back or cut it out altogether.
    Thanks for the blessings hun and aloha to you too!

    Hi Miss Connie,
    We haven’t talked in forever. Been flarin, how bout you? lol. I need to come by your blogs and visit you today. I’m so glad you got a laugh out of that one :) It was intended, and we all need a little bit more laughter, ya know? I hope your holidays were good to you too. Hugs :)

    Hi Susan,
    I’m so sorry for you loss. You are in my prayers hun. Your sis is lucky to have a sister like you who will get out there and try and find new info on RA and stay abreast what’s new and up and coming. Not everyone has such supportive families and that’s so sad and unfortunate. Big hugs to you girl. Oh and btw, I can’t believe you didn’t know it would be the copper hose…everyone knows that!! Not! lol!! Have a good one :)

    Hey Chick!
    How’s it going missy? Thanks for coming by to check on me. We didn’t have internet for a while and I was just CRAVING my online time, it was awful. Now I’m so far behind, I have over 500 emails waiting for me still. I can’t keep up! Tomorrow (today?) is the day that I will get some time from the bean and catch up on all of my fav blogs and such :)
    And you are so right! The hardest thing are the after affects. It takes days to get your sleep cycle turned around and trying not to take that nappy in the day time when the kids are asleep, puhlease. Impossible! I hope life is treating you right sweetie. I’ll be dropping by to visit you later on today.
    Soft hugs,
    Michelle

  3. Ran across your blog while looking for something else…usually how I find stuff of interest. My older sister has had RA for a decade now…so I try to keep up on info, that might help her.

    Insomnia? Not just for RA sufferers! I had it pretty badly in ’93 after we lost our youngest son. Bad times. I remember one night not sleeping, left hubby in bed and went in and cleaned out from under and behind the fridge, balanced it again and then spent a couple of hours trying to figure out how to hook up the ice maker again…crimp in the copper hose……..

  4. You know I’m not laughing that you can’t sleep, been there, done that & will do it again, but what a funny post! Thanks for the laugh. Belated Merry Christmas to you and your family too.

  5. Aloha Michelle,
    Got a sure fired cure for insomnia for ya. You’re gonna think it is too simple to work, and too hard to do, at the same time. Think again, it will work, and ya just gotta do it slowly.

    Are ya ready? Stop ALL stimulants. Yup, including coffee. You will sleep for a week, and then you will have WAY more energy! No kidding!

    You need to WEAN off of coffee though. It is such a powerful drug (same biochemical equation as cocaine) that it may be harmful to stop abruptly. Sure as hell will cause a killer headache! I took about 6 weeks to wean, because I kept getting hip pain as a with drawl symptom. When I finally got off, I realized that I was drinking pain and stress from a cup!

    Good luck to you,
    Many blessings,
    Carrie
