I Take Naps

I have been sleeping from 8 to 5 hours each night and taking 7 or 8 hour naps during the day. Yes, I am sick, very sick. Kymber needs a nap? Well, I am taking them. I lie down in hopes of a 2 hour nap. Nope, I lay down at 11 am for a nap and awoke at 7:15 pm. !!!

Nothing I take is intended for sleep except Melatonin. No med I take makes me sleepy.  So, it is just me. If it were not for my sinuses and allergies, I would be the healthiest person on earth. 

Right now, I am using Vicks Salve, Hall's Mentholyptus cough drops, chicken broth, Ruffles, pseudofed generic , guaifenisin generic, and hot washcloths on my face. The sinus problem has migrated from forehead to ears to throat to chest. And, I am running a fever. And, ever joint hurts and my body feels numb and heavy.

I finally started letting Patsy Cline and Thelma out of the pen after 5 days of being locked in every day. Both can walk better.  NOW, they insist on roosting on the metal rail as close to the house door, as close as they can. So, I have to carry them to the pen EVERY night. Patsy Cline has quit struggling. Thelma just complains more in a little trilling voice I have never heard before.

As usual, I want KFC gravy and cannot afford it! Gravy would cure me.

Just shoot me!

    1. Wean,
      You don't want to get sleep like this! I take Melatonin with B6. Get the stuff with B6 or it doesn't work as well.

      I am an insomniac too. But, by using good sleep hygiene and take Natrol Melatonin with B6, I actually sleep most night 7.5 hours, my ideal sleep time that my body can function.

      Sorry about your insomnia. It is the pits.

  3. kymber,
    Crap is right. So, I slept over 5 hours and am awake. Tomorrow, I may go to ER. If not, Monday for sure. And, I have 100 temp and my normal temp is 97.2 and has been 95.6 when I was soooo ill. ???

    I am doing my otc and home remedies in the middle of the night.

  5. Sorry that you are sick. There's a lot of that kind of ailment going around right now, people here think it's because of the strange weather; so much rain and high humidity. I hope you get to feeling better.

    1. Harry,
      High humidity does it for me and sinuses. Thanks.

  6. Please go to the doctor! Sounds like allergies have turned into an infection. I am glad you are able to get the sleep your body seems to need. Sleep is the body's way of healing. Let us know how you are doing.

      I only realized late Friday night that this had gotten so nasty. Then, it was the weekend.
