Tired but I am feeling pretty good

Hello again, faithful readers.  It is I writing another blog entry because I paid for this and don’t want it to turn to expensive fodder.   In other words, no matter how boring my life is, I will post every so often just because.

Anyhow, I am wishing the best to all of you.  I am hoping that this winter isn’t being too harsh to you and that you are making the best of things


I’m still not sleeping through the night.   Today I slept in til 4:30am.  Makes for a very tired day.  I know there are people who intentionally get up that early and function normally, I am NOT one of those people.  I see my shrink on the 28th of this month, hopefully he has some solution to my sleep problem.  We have tried Ambien, Restoril and Sonata and none of them have worked.  We are pretty much out of ideas, being as I have never had this kind of sleep problem, waking up too early.  My insomnia has always been not sleeping at all or having serious problems falling asleep.  Ambien, Restoril and Sonata all do a fine job of putting me to sleep.  Heck, taking nothing I can fall asleep.  J just really hope my shrink has an idea,


The drool continues.  No medical person that I have spoken to has any idea why I am drooling.  And it seems to be getting worse.  It just plain sucks.


I appear to be having no side effects from the chemo.  I go my allotted 3 days and then go about my boring existence.  Seriously, you’d think that SOMETHING would be happening, but nope no side effects.  The main effect is going strong, so we know it’s doing something. I hope the no side effect thing continues and I just waste 2+ hours for 3 days a month and then I can almost forget about it.


I haven’t drive since September, first it was the lack of hemoglobin that kept me from driving.  Now I have a good amount of hemoglobin but I am not sleeping right, so I am a danger to any other driver, so I don’t drive.  The funny thing is, I don’t miss driving at all, I can live without getting behind the wheel.  It just puts a strain on Teresa and for that I will drive as soon as this backwards-ass insomnia goes away, that is assuming the roads aren’t messed up from the weather, I won’t drive in weather.

Speaking of weather.  It is supposed to snow here today, AGAIN,  C’mon, we have had enough snowy days.  It is time for some nicer winter weather.  35degrees and sunny would be quite welcome.  That can happen, heck, 40 and sunny can happen in January in mid-Iowa  But no, we get 32-33 with snow,


Oh my, wave of tiredness just hit, I am late for 1st nap.  Sonata, which I am taking now, makes me tired 24/7.  But dang, it doesnt normally hit like this.  Then again 1st nap normally happens an hourish ago.  So I guess its mostly my fault and only partially Sonata’s fault that I am so tired all the sudden.


I’ll skip the Skyrim report this time.  I don’t think anyone is really interested in it in the first place.  So, I don’t feel bad not sharing this time.
