Yes,  I am up.  Here, for your edification, is my sleep schedule for the past 30 or so hours:


Tuesday night: in bed by nine, asleep by 10 pm.  Up at 5 am Wednesday.  Back to sleep 9am. Up at 7pm. Back to sleep (on couch) 11:30 pm, up 2:30 am Thursday. It’s just about 5 am now.  Still awake, so far.


That works out to about 20 hours asleep and ten hours awake.  Seriously, who needs that much sleep, and why?  I can also just stay awake for days at a time.  ?????????

The fun is added to by the pain.  My foot hurts, my leg hurts, my side hurts, my shoulders hurt.  Walking hurts.  My neck hurts.  Oh, hell.  Everything hurts.  That’s about the size of it.  Being ill: not for the faint-hearted. Giving in, giving up, are not on.  I will not cave.  I will prevail.  I will enjoy my life regardless.  So there.

  1. I hope you won’t take it the wrong way when I say I laughed while reading this. 🙂 Not because I’m laughing AT you – because I understand! lol! Who DOES need that much sleep and why is still sometimes not enough? And then having periods where you could be awake for days at a time? Yes – that sounds familiar as well! 🙂 Mine ends up being the other unhealthy version of yours, however… I have insomnia at night no matter how early I was up. Sometimes until 1 am – sometimes until almost 5 am. 😦 From there the sleep varies. *sigh*

    And the pain! Who could forget the pain! Your foot hurts? Yes – me too! And my neck. And my back. Or my leg or my chest (I’ve had pleurisy issues as well) or my elbow. What doesn’t? lol…

    In summation – I understand. 🙂 I understand and I applaud your attitude! It really isn’t for the faint of heart, but I think you’ve got that conquered! 🙂

  2. OH, you made me laugh! Thanks for that. It’s good to know you’re not the only one, right? You’re right about it not being for the faint of heart, I think those people get killed by the things we are too pig-headed to stop fighting. For once, being stubborn is good. Thanks again for the laugh. You made my day.
