I am here. Lay it on me.

I’m so exhausted I can’t breathe or stop moaning with every exhalation. Feel like I’m surely dying

Reply

I feel stupid asking this since you are a nurse, but do you think you need to go to the ER?

Reply

I don’t know...my chest is so heavy

Maybe I should do an Albuterol aerosol treatment

I wish I could be more helpful. You know way more about medical issues than I ever will but Here I Am and I are here to be with you through this episode.

Exhaustion

What have you been doing?

Slept 3 hours Thursday night, worked 12 hours on Friday. Stayed up all night Friday night because my adult son was suicidal, then worked another 12 Saturday having had no sleep. Now I’m awake and have to work another 12 today.

Just can’t get adequate rest and now I can’t breathe

Wow 😮 the love of a mother. Can you call into work and explain the situation?

We have no staff and that’s why I had to work this weekend. It’s just so incredibly taxing

I didn’t know I had it in me, but it’s also killing me. My heart has been flip-flopping for days! Now both my calves are contracting. I feel so bad...

Maybe you need some potassium? Do you have any bananas?

Reply

Of course not!

Reply

Yes never a banana around when you need one. What about a hot bath?

I am not good at this. Please accept my apology.

Yes, you are and you have no Idea how much you’re appreciated for your time and efforts 🙂

I don’t know if you are religious but I will leave you with this one thought. When Jesus hung on the cross their were only two people who stayed with him. His mother and St. John. Like Mary you are keeping vigil at the cross with your son. I am praying for you and your son.

You have to rest, call in sick...I’ve felt that level of exhaustion before and it is serious. My body was breaking down. It is vital you get rest, take an Ativan or something and knock out for hours.

Do you have any benzodiazepine or something sedating? You literally just need something to knock yourself out with and finally get sleep. I had insomnia for months and was only getting 3 hours a night, finally got ambien CR and didn’t see daylight for 10 hours. It reset my brain. I think at this point your not going to fall asleep on your own too much adrenaline. Does your son have a med like a sleeping pill you can use?

Reply

No, he hasn’t sought treatment in a couple of years. I’ve never had this problem until my sister died last year.

Reply

No benzos, they will no longer prescribe them or narcotics.

Reply

Maybe then a Tylenol pm and melatonin. I’m sorry, insomnia is pure torture.

Reply

I agree...all antihistamines aggravate my restless legs and will pay the price if I take one or 2. RLS is torture!

I don't hand RLS but have something similar called Periodic Limb Movement Disorder. It was discovered during a sleep study. I get klonopin for that and insomnia. It makes a difference for both conditions.

I used to take Klonopin too until I was taken off due to it being a benzo. Insomnia is relatively new to me. I don’t have it figured out yet!

I’m gonna try and lie down now and see if I can sleep a little until my alarm goes off at 4:00! Your thoughtfulness and time are greatly appreciated! You’re definitely one of my buddies now ❤️🌞❤️
