What Are You Doing Right Now?
Not sleeping, that's for sure.

What's In Your Cup?
Coffee, even though it's not time to get up. But did I mention the not sleeping part?

Vent and Rant:
Why oh why can't I sleep? Why must I wake up at 2 or 3 a.m. and then just STAY awake until I can't stand staying in the bed any longer?

Admittedly I have a lot on my mind. I put an offer on a house yesterday. I go to the dr today to get the results of my shoulder MRI. Sleeping was never my strong suit, but this is getting ridiculous. I do not want to take sleep aids, although I have tried melatonin. It worked the first couple of times I tried it but not right now.

Anyway, not sleeping is making me grouchy!
Coffee at whatever early hour of the morning simply guarentees that you won't sleep. It might help to cut back on the caffene during the day and see that helps with the sleep.

It sounds like you have a lot on your plate right now. I know when that is the case for me I cannot shut off my mind and sleep. Heck, I watch Lucas and I realize that learning to shut the brain off so you can sleep is one of the hardest things to learn to do. Little guy will be exhausted, eye rubbing and yawning like no tomorrow but he just can't sleep. He cries very loudly to make sure that we are aware he has not figured the trick out.

Be good to yourself. Enjoy a movie, read a silly book, do something that does not take a lot of brain power and see if that helps you drift back off. But avoid the coffee.

Good luck with the house and the Doctor!

Never had an iPad. The surface is a learning curve. There are absolutely no instructions��! Every day there is a new discovery. It is finally filling the need I got it for... being able to go to the field and pull up information for my clients using my mobile hotspot. Can that be done from my smart phone? Not quite as nimbly. Am I under using this? Yeah, certainly, but that is changing daily.

I hope your sleep will be better, but I hear it from a lot of women (is this a typical woman-thing?) who don't sleep the night through. Take care, Betty.
And a new house! That is exciting. I hope it will come through.

Betty - speaking from bitter experience with this form of insomnia - don't try to self treat this and become debilitated! Prolonged sleep deprivation puts you into a mental vicious circle where you stop thinking rationally about your insomnia and how to deal with it - and it will become very detrimental to your overall health - esp. since you're trying to heal your shoulder, heal your heart, etc. - Go to your doctor and get something to help you restore your normal sleep cycle so you can remain asleep until morning - it won't get better by itself once the pattern has become "habitual" (I know - I've been there!). I was prescribed a lot of different stuff - but a very low dose of Clonazepam (Klonopin) worked for me - and I did NOT become dependent on it.

MRI results show a "moderate broad-based partial thickness tear" of the supraspinatus tendon, which is not a horrible diagnosis. Often people have a small tear and never know it. More concerning is the fact that my shoulder is so painful, and frozen in spite of all the PT. He wants to do a "manipulation under anesthesia" to break up the scar tissue and get it moving. That should show whether the pain is from the frozen shoulder or from the tear. I'm trying 6 more weeks of PT first to see if I can do it without that.

Catching up on everything, I see Stitchawl is home.. Welcome back and the description of the young women changing is what is said happens to young latinas.. young, single, beautiful then married, kids, and then poff! My friend says they must have a fat gene that kicks in. And thanks for always taking the time to explain stuff to me. The information on diving is always interesting.

Thanks for the update Betty. I hope the additional PT works and you are able to get a decent full night of sleep. Good Luck on the house.

Right now I am trying to decide what to eat.

"Fat" doesn't quite fit. By 30 years old, with 3-5 kids (98% Roman Catholic in Micronesia thanks to the Spanish and Portuguese,) a diet that puts 'Spam' into 10-15 meals out of every week, and these women add a whole new dimension to the definition of 'fat.' 150kg on a 5' tall woman isn't unusual...

Something sure does, cuz you see the same thing happening in Saipan, Rota, Guam, Chuuk, Pohnpei and Kosrae. For some reason, it doesn't seem as big a problem (no pun intended) in the Western Caroline islands, which make up the south western end of Micronesia.

Betty, have you tried talking with an osteopath? They work on the principle that the body 'should have' healed itself, and if for some reason it stopped in the middle, gently (the definition of this one that my osteopath uses is very different from mine...) re-injuring the tendon and letting it get back to work healing itself has worked for me with the bicep tendons. It hurt like hell when he was digging his thumbs into the tendon, but then over the next two weeks all pain was gone, and my shoulder didn't hurt at all. Of course, then I re-injured it when I went paragliding, so I'm going to have to do it all over again.... Fortunately, I didn't re-injure my knees so they still are pain-free. I sure wish osteopaths could use anesthesia...

He, Betty, I do hope your shoulder will be better whatever you choose to do. Take good care of yourself! (and get some sleep......)
What helps me to sleep: listening to an audiobook....Jane Austen or such. Or painting my house from top to bottom (in my mind of course ); I imagine myself cleaning, sandpapering, undercoating etc etc a door.....and on to the next
