Wow, sleeping is great stuff!

Yesterday I was at work at 6:30 a.m. and then went back in around 2:30 p.m. I did the double trip for the purpose of getting more grades in and dropping off plans for the next two days. This brilliant idea was drafted so I could get more sleep the next morning, which would be today.

It worked!

The depressed dwarfette slept through until about 7:40! The cat started meowing around 5 something but with an occasional pat he would settle down and I could sleep some more until he meowed again and I patted him, and repeat until I finally got up to feed him.

I feel so much better and clearer. Wow, this is great stuff. I go to bed somewhere between 8:30 and 9:30 so sleeping a lot is clearly something my body craves (along with chocolate and most other yummy foods).

By the way, my Facebook is now working just fine. It seemed to fix itself by the end of the day that I was complaining about it. I swear it was acting up for me. If there is anyone out there who wants to be friended on Facebook, send me an email through my profile page and I'll add you to my list.

I just got a call from my therapist's office canceling my appointment for today. That's a good thing because I didn't even know I had an appointment for today. In my book, it's for next Friday but she said he'd see me in two more weeks. Now the schedule is all off but at least I didn't miss an appointment today! I would have felt like an idiot, moreso than normal.

That's all I've got for now. I might even try to watch Survivor tonight due to the extra sleep. Woohoo, I am a wild woman.

I'm so glad you managed to get some sleep and that you feel better!!
I don't suffer from MS but I suffer from RSD (Reflex Symapthetic Dystrophy) which is a neurological, chronic pain condition. One of the symptoms of RSD is Insomnia so I know what it is like not being able to sleep!! I developed RSD when I was 12 years old, I am now 13.
My nanan had progressive MS but unfortunately has now died so I love reading your blog and researching things on MS, has well as RSD.

I too go to bed starting anytime after 8:30. I feel like it's so pathetic. All the shows I enjoy watching I have to watch the next day online b/c I just can't stay awake.

Hope you have another great night of sleep. Sweet dreams!

Thanks again for the support. I felt so refreshed and then I went out to run errands and made all kinds of cognitive mistakes. I felt like an idiot but felt glad to be able to come home and take an hour nap.
