Dreeee-eee-eee-e-am, Dream, Dream, Dree-eam

I am back in my bad pattern of sleep. Fall asleep quickly, wake up between 2 and 3 am and can’t fall back asleep. When I do it’s only for minutes. Last night my husband did the same thing so that was added fun.
Since I don’t normally have to get up early in the morning I just keep sleeping in little bursts until I want to get up or an animal insists on it. The last two mornings after my husband wakes up but before he goes to work I have had unpleasant dreams and just gone ahead and woken up for the day early.
Yesterday a man attacked me in a cement hallway and today was long and involved about breaking my glasses, then being late for my eye dr appt (which is today) and then losing my phone, wallet, car and car keys!
The 2nd dream had a recurring theme about trying to do something or get somewhere and needing help and no one would help me. Thanks for not holding the window open for me Sarah & Christy!

When I was diagnosed with cancer I became aware of the strange phenomenon of people not feeling good but always prefacing it with “I am sure it’s not as bad as you feel” before telling me. I feel the same way about sleeping issues. I mean I know this is what my mornings look like:

While the majority of people’s mornings look like this:

Big Subject Change

Last week I met with a new UroGynecologist. I had such a bad experience with my OncoGynecologist that I was —> <—- close to a panic attack before the appointment. She was so wonderful. Very happy I finally went. She has prescribed physical therapy for my vagina. For those of you that don’t know what that involves I will just let you use your imagination. If your mind goes to anything pleasant, shame on you.

Many women who have had gynecological cancers are severely and permanently damaged from the treatment but they only talk about the socially acceptable part. Permanent fatigue, neuropathy, maybe fuzzy brain. I mean, do you really think you can have surgeries that take out internal organs, then chemo, then abdominal radiation, sometimes both externally and internally and not have damage? Our bodies or so sexualized in society that we can’t even talk about it unless it’s for a lascivious topic. Frustrating. I think about people that I know that read this** and I think about all the things that have said to me, around me, or about me over the years and I know that they won’t be able to read about vaginal p/t without a giggle. It honestly makes me a little nauseated. Sorry, not sorry  but it’s true.

Bring May Powers

May has been designated as my own personal back on track month. I have been such a sloth for April. I have been eating like shit, haven’t run at all, no muscle, just bad bad bad. So, one month, do a quick reset and see if we can get back on track. It feels like I just spent the last couple of months struggling with little sicknesses.

Also MAY is proofreading month. I can’t remember the last time I posted on Social Media of any type without posting something stupid because I didn’t proofread correctly. So if you see typo’s after today, or Stupid Auto-corrects, feel free to call me on it.

Okay – I think I am done. I will have an apple for breakfast which will give me enough energy to get to the afternoon without snapping someone’s nose. I think histamines might make me cranky. Allergies always make me super touchy even when I am on all sorts of allergy medicine and don’t actually feel bad so I think it’s an actual chemical reaction.

** I am regularly surprised when I go look at the website stats by how many people actually wander over to my blogs.

  1. So a lot of people come and read here?

    That is such a bummer about the bad sleep pattern. Poor sleep really affects so much. I hope it will work itself out and you will get back to sleeping longer periods.

    I am so glad that you had such a good appointment with the UG. I hope the pt works.

    I hope the allergies get better. The whole allergy thing is so maddening!

    1. Well, I wouldn’t say a lot! But way more than you would think judging by the lack of comments. It use to bug 🕷 me but not as much anymore, I think about all the sites I read without every saying anything.

  2. I hope you know I had to sing your title to myself, and now it is my current brain worm! Lol

    Allergies have been difficult lately – maybe that is messing up your sleep, too. Right now the only thing that deals adequately with my allergies is Zyrtec, but that affects me horribly. I just can’t stay awake, I have to keep dropping off just to be able to keep my eyes open for a little while, and then I feel like I’m underwater or something. So I have been organizing when I take it by when I can afford to be “out of it”, since it stays in your system for a while. Not fun!

    Glad you found a doctor you like! It’s too bad it’s such a difficult topic.

    I need to get back on track, too, with WW. I have been walking more, which is good, but it seems like I can only deal with one thing that is good for me at a time!

    Good luck with proofreading! It’s hard when autocorrect will initiate changes to stuff AS IT’S SENDING sometimes; I have seen it!

Don’t leave without saying something!
