Yesterday I was in a daze. I didn’t sleep all night. I only fell asleep at about 7:30 in the morning when my husband was getting up to go to work and he accidentally woke me up when he was leaving for work at 9:30.
I couldn’t get back to sleep at all. My stomach was crampy from the Crohn’s disease. So no matter how much I tried to sleep I just couldn’t. I ended up being in a fog most of the day and then at about 5 pm I started to get a bad headache. By 7 it was a migraine.
There was no way that I could write any posts on my blogs yesterday. They would have been gibberish.
I don’t know how I did it, but I didn’t fall asleep until 2:30 this morning. I guess when you’re overtired you just keep going, even if your brain is aching and not functioning well. LOL I think I finally fell asleep during an infomercial for exposed acne treatment or something like that.
The good news is that once I finally fell asleep I slept until about 9 am, and then I managed to fall asleep again until about noon today. I felt so much better after that long sleep.
I don’t sleep much and my sleep habits have gotten a lot worse over the last two years or so since I’ve been off on medical leave. Four to six hours of sleep is about my average per night so getting nine or more hours of sleep in one day is the equivalent of two days sleep for me. No wonder I feel so much better today, eh?
Do you ever have days like that where you haven’t slept or you’ve only had an hour or two’s sleep?
