Maybe this should be a poll...... and I'm intrigued to know how other friends on here "spend" the hours awake.
For a lot of my adult life, I've had periods of insomnia. This has been from a week to several months, with cat-naps during the daylight hours. This was more of a problem when I worked full-time, but now I just try to catch up on sleep when I can (this is rarely in the hours of darkness).
My husband has a theory that it is because I subconsciously dread waking up from deep sleep, because nine times out of ten this is to an awareness of acute pain, brain "fog", and struggling to move my limbs and back. He could have a point....... I've also read that this is one of the side effects of taking Plaquinel.
I try not to stress about it. After a day of taking meds (including steroids) my bod is more comfortable by evening - so I've become creative. Various crafts, and writing stories and poetry on the PC. I love taking photographs - and these are fun to play with in Photoshop.
Most of my family live in Australia - so I can Skype them in the early hours, or follow them on Facebook.
Then , of course, there's this Blog site!
