Since I am up at 4 am anyway

Hello all ,

Well since the preds wake me up at 4 am much to the delight of my cats (who get fed earlier now) I have taken an earlier shift at work. I have been looking with longing at all the retirees who are able to walk in the afternoon. Now I will be off at 4 pm and able to take better care of myself and also have more food prep time. This new shift should work until I am off meds as I am not an early bird, actually the opposite! PMR does turn life inside out and upside down. Wanted to share something good for a change. Wishing you all well.

Hi bunnymom,

Well done, getting something positive out of the situation! Plus as you say, it gives you more time later in the day for you and your family!

I'm sitting here at 2:45 am, wide awake... Smiling at your post!

Ditto what you say! Cheers, Jerri

Ideal time to take your pred with a cuppa and at the least a slice of toast.

Back to bed and read for at least one hour - gives the pred time to get working.

2am is the time your adrenals would be replenishing your cortisol for the next day.

PMR = Lifstyle changing. You walk to a different drummer.

Amen to that!

Pred made me an early riser too! I actually like that part of it, I get to take sunrise photos and the world is quiet and peaceful.

I find I am not even really tired during the day but I do go right to sleep. I use to be a night owl. My life is very different now. Maybe not all bad as you say.
