I find myself becoming more and more tired and for no particular reason

At night I am now sleeping from 11.00 till 2.00 and then I spend the rest of the night trying to get comfy - to no avail - When I go down stars about 5.00 I take my medicines and by about 8,00 I have stopped hurting for a while.

By 11.00 am am exhausted by two falling asleep - now I am trying to occupy myself before I go out to read the Magazine for the blind tonight. I am already very weary any thing I can use for energy please suggest . Thanks a very wearie Gins

In tudor times people slept 2 lots of 4 hours, so our current expectation of an 8 hour sleep is not necessarily what suits every one. This illness does seem to play havoc with normal sleeping patterns - I don't know if it is better to strive for a normal pattern or just go with the flow. I find the tirdness worse than the pain myself.

how about getting up when you forst wake up and going back to bed when you have had a cuppa,read.done a crossword etc ? you may find you can get back to sleep again. It is something i need to do sometimes x
