My sleeping habits as of late.


So, the clock on my computer right now says it is 1:49am. Now, don't get me wrong, but that isn't normal in any sense of the word. The last week or so I haven't been sleeping well at all. I don't know what is up. I have tried praying, watching TV, reading, looking at random websites via stumbleupon (interesting application), and writing. Nothing seems to work :( Weirdest thing about this bout of non-sleeping ability is that both of my hands are numb and tingly. Oh, my ears are throbbing from my piercings STILL and I am sick of them hurting.

As you can tell, I am in a cranky complaining mood. I want to be able to sleep. I have had problems with sleep in the past, and it really affected my emotional state. I am afraid that this is going to happen again but I don't know how to prevent it. I wish my body would just get a good schedule. I have a messed up schedule and I know it. Every day at 11am and between 2-3:30pm I get really tired and in the latter time slot I usually pass out on the couch for any given amount of time. I am confused. I don't know what to do...

And that leaves me at the current state I am in. Sitting bundled under a blanket, on the couch, with headphones on listening to Gilmore Girls.

I am going to talk to Nick about this in the morning. He is sleeping so peacefully and comfy in bed. Maybe he has more insight on the situation.

Back to Gilmore Girls. :-/

if your feeling numb and tingly i would go to the doctor and make sure something isn't going on. i know when i can't sleep it is because i am to hot and uncomfortable.

i hope that you can get over this and sleep again :)

Hi, I found your blog via your husband's blog.... and I was wondering if you could give me some feedback about blogspot. I'm considering a switch, but I have some questions..... Could you help? If so, Nick has my email address.

Thanks!

Dana

I agree with Janet, go to the Doctor and make sure nothing else is going one, start cutting out caffeine, drink more water, try a little (little) walk at some point in the afternoon, go to bed when you're tired, and having a fan on you while you sleep might work too....there's my two cents, hope you're sleeping soon.

In answer to your question regarding leftover safety, here is a fabulous site/guide/list , and it happens to be a blog about using up leftovers in creative ways too.

Hope that helps, I suggest printing it out and keeping it on the side of the fridge for quick reference. Also , regarding numb/tingle things, add a memory foam topper to your bed if it's from pressure points, AND cut out nutra sweet/Aspertame...it has some wicked side effects, including numbness.

OH, and in the list above, for eggs, she must mean OUT of the shell. Eggs in the shell can be kept for 4-5 weeks past the packing date(3 weeks probably from when you buy them), as long as they are in the fridge under 40.
