I keep telling myself that the worst of this pain and problem from coming off my medications will subside with the worst of it being tonight. Lord, I am asking for a good night, please be with me, Amen!
Last night I went to bed when the rest of the family did and that is something I usually do not do. I sat up on my massager watching the food network for about 30 minutes and then decided that I would try to get some sleep.
I slept until my spasms woke me up at 0200 (once again) and the first thing I did was get up and drink a large glass of water hoping that this would help some of the spasms since I am learning that if we don't keep hydrated, our muscles will spasm and since I had been sleeping for about 5 hours, I figured water might help.
It didn't and 20 minutes tossing and turning, I sat up in my massage chair hoping to fall asleep and when I couldn't I just read for awhile. Around 4:00 I tried to fall asleep again and rolled up against hubby who was toasty warm and finally fell asleep.
I slept until 8:20 this morning. I just can't let this pain beat me or I will give up and never get back out of bed. Today after my shower, I will do the stretching exercises with the arthritis video I have and continue to force water during the day.
I hope you have a blessed day!
