Insert Restless Leg Syndrome.
It sounds so stupid...my leg jerks throughout the night. No big deal!
Oh, let me tell you. I don't sleep. My average last week was 4 1/2 hours. I haven't slept at all tonight, and it's past 4 am! This is the worst night I have had, with lots of pain in addition to the other stuff.
I decided to take a second dose of "Restful Legs," a homeopathic medicine that is supposed to all them.
Bad idea. Even though it had been more than 4 hours between doses, my body had some sort of a reaction and I couldn't breathe. I was so scared and eventually woke Matt up. After a Benadryl, several inhalers, and a nebulizer treatment, I finally felt better. Thank goodness we have a PICU in our house so that I didn't have to go to the ER! Yeah, I won't be taking those pills again!!!! They didn't work anyway! 👎🏻
So now it's going on 4:30 with no sleep yet for me. And this is pretty much how it's been for the last month or more. I'm not sure that I will be able to function much longer. All of the medical sites say I need to reduce my stress...ha! They don't know my life.
If you see me tomorrow, don't be offended if Zombie-Julie doesn't wave back. I will be concentrating all of my energies on staying awake. 😴
