No sleep!

I haven't posted for some time now, as I am struggling with depression, etc. I tend to shut myself off from the world. Anyway, last night I had zero hours sleep. My brain was in overdrive, plus I was in pain. Slept in the day. Big mistake, as now I am typing this at 2:06am! My fibro was also terrible yesterday. I felt like a women of 90! Shuffling along the floor, and the worst body, muscle pain ever. Just when I think things can't possibly get any worse, they do!

It's a daily battle between myself and Fibromyalgia, and it almost always wins. Some days I want it all to end, but then suddenly, I get a glimmer of hope. A good day! Few and far between, but nevertheless, 1 excellent, beautiful day, in all its glory. And it's those days, along with friends and family that keep me going and give me hope.

Well, that's it from me for this early morning. For those of you sleeping, have sweet dreams. And for the rest of us night owls, good luck counting sheep!

Peace and love.

  • Morning Tracy,

    I have just woken up and I feel like I have been beaten up. Luckily I don't have work today.

    It had been very wet here for the last couple of days. I put my aches and pains down to the damp, because when it's dry and sunny I am fine. One day I am going to live somewhere warm.

    Hope you get some rest today.

    Take care.

  • Glad you have reached out. I reckon using insomniacs need an extremely large flock of sheep to count, terrible isn't it. Sounds as though your interest alcloxk has got out of cinque sleeping in the day rather than nighrwishI could do either. I can be awake all night and feel so fatigued in the day and decide to try a liedown and then wide awake so have given up on that one.

    As you say if we have a better day we see a glimmer of sunshine not he horizon and we must remember. Those dull dark days of pain that hopefully the sun will pike through the clouds eventually. Take care of yourself.x

  • high cortisol also causes this...have you had that checked...the saliva 4 times a day....

  • I know what signs to look for.my mind gets depressed and head goes into overdrive and I over think.I can't sleep and it's 4.23 am. I did small bit housework and the pain iam in .i can't cope when am like this I get so down.I had few nites sleep and then none.it just seems a never ending cycle..I had swollen ankles and hands for years and doctors said it was my fibro.I changed doctors and I have stage 3 kidney disease. I don't know what to do.some of the meds they had me on have caused it,so sometimes fibro overlaps with other illnesses. So if they say it's all fibro ask for 2nd opinion.
