My husband puts up with my RLS. He's been working some hard
hours lately plus he is coming down with a chest cold.
During the night he turned on the light and said that either I
was to leave the bedroom or he was going to go sleep in my
son's old bed. (2 yrs of my son living on his own) He told me that he's
sick of the bed shaking from me shifting my legs around, and
that he didn't appreciate being kicked all night. He wasn't
mean but he was scolding me for something that I have no control
Now it is early morning and I am up after just 2 hours of precious
sleep...I am exhausted and want to nap so bad right now but
I have to be someplace by 7:30am. My husband left for work
just now and he kissed my cheek, then said "Don't take a nap
today and I bet you will sleep good tonight." Ouch.!!!
I can tell you right now that by 3pm, when I get home, I am going to be
so tired that I will be numb. My eyes keep closing as I write this. If
I don't nap for 30 mins, I get a headache. I honestly want to call in
and sleep to avoid that but I gave my word to be there to volunteer.
I hope that last night is not the way that our sleeping arrangements
will play out for the rest of our marriage but according to my husband,
it's time for separate beds in different rooms. I hate to see this! I
resent RLS with a passion today.
