If anyone ever tells you a long term injury doesn’t mess with your head,and sleep schedule, they are lying. When I left you yesterday the plan was to go to sleep….and I did…for about a hour. At which point in time my ex-husband called to discuss our son. This normally wouldn’t be an issues except I was having an off day. So after a long discussion of our child(hey we are trying to make co-parenting work.), I couldn’t go back to sleep. It was bad. The thought process would NOT stop. The worry. The stress. It wouldn’t let go of my brain long enough for me to sleep. So it was another night of getting lost in the Netflix world. Is it just me, or can y’all get caught up, like I do while watching the whole season at one time, that you talk to it like they can hear you? No? Just me? Lol. Anyway it was close to 11am before my eyes and brain got it together enough to work together and let me sleep. But I was awake again by 3:30ish….not just awake, but awake and out of the bed. Tried holding a legitimate conversation with my son. Who promptly fussed at me and told me to get my butt back in bed because exhaustion was a very real thing and he just knew I had it. Kid is good. Sadly he knows the signs of when I haven’t been able to sleep and how to help with it. I was able to lay back down but it took a good 30 to 40 minutes for me to doze back off….only to be back awake by 5:45pm….and been up ever since. So my picture today..well, we will call it exhaustion. (Please excuse, well, the hot mess that is me…)
Hope y’all’s day has been better!
Love, prayers, and blessings,
