Another restless night?

August 9, 2017

 

I don't know about you, but as far as sleep and I go...well let me tell you "we have a thing going on".  Yep, when I was young, I'm talking about like five years old young. Well let's say naps and I really weren't seeing eye to eye. Nowadays though it is a different story. "Dear Naps, I realize I didn't love and appreciate you when I was a mere child, but I want you to know that now, I love you!"  Yep! It's that serious.

Honestly, naps, sleep, slumber, siesta, beauty rest, so on and so forth are quite the priority in my life.  I have the Do Not Disturb activated on my iPhone from 9PM - 7AM.  So no one can disturb me while I get some Zzzzzs.  It's quite serious, I can readily recall replying to friends' invitations to outings with, "Oh sorry my pillow and I have a date". 

So why then did I chose this topic as a blog? It somewhat makes no sense...let me update you.  I've been wearing an arm brace for a few weeks now. It's an old "anew" injury on my wrist, a tendon was afflicted about 19 1/2 years ago...it had been fine without incident until about 3 weeks ago.  Which all brings me back to this restless topic.  Now I wake up almost every night and it takes me more than thirty minutes to get back to sleep.  Therefore I looked up reasons for being restless, most reasons have to do with worry and overthinking things; but also due to pain.  Recently, I woke up around 1AM and my wrist was in a lot of pain.  I truly am hoping this brace I'm constantly wearing....errr I mean I mostly wear...ummmm I wear at least 50% of the time....well if I can I wear it throughout the day...well I hope it works and it helps.

(just kidding- I'm wearing it night and day- I live it 24/7 and I'm not happy).

Plus I'm old or older now and since school has begun I have had a lot on my mind. That morning that I woke up around 1AM, I actually got a lot of work done.  Of course once the alarm rang, after I had fallen back asleep, I was exhausted! 

 

Based on what your doctor recommends, if you share with him or her, I hope whatever remedy is prescribed works and you get some sleep.  As for me, I drink ginger tea to help with the inflamation of my wrist, hoping it will lessen the chances of it hurting.  Clear your head and relax...get your beauty sleep on!
