How’s that for a topic line?
Seriously, folks, last night was the first night that I’ve slept in bed since January 29. I’ve tried a couple of other times but if my head wasn’t elevated, I couldn’t do it - the pain was too much. Last night I did it - about 7 hours - woke up once with a fairly nasty headache but fell back to sleep after tylenol and about 15 minutes.
To me, this is a big deal for two reasons - because it was getting to the point that I was feeling sorry for myself every night when everyone else went to bed and here’s little old me (okay, maybe not so little) sleeping in a recliner in the living room. Also because it’s a sign, albeit a small one, that things are heading slowly in the right direction.
Small step, but good step.
Hang in there.
