No, please tell me that didn't happen

Friday, August 28, 2020

It sure did. Again! I dosed off for about five minutes tops and when I opened my eyes there before me is not this blog but my journal site. It was on the front page so I wasn't writing anything it was just weird.

I was almost done with my book *ahem* I mean my entry too. Sadly I only remember one thing I wrote about but it's an important one. It's about why I am having such a hard time not eating. I'm going to give the shortened version.

Even though I take Ambian I still wake up between 3:30 & 4am. According to my bi-pap machine I usually sleep about 3 hours. It must be enough because I'm wide awake. I'm also hungry so I think my body thinks it's time for breakfast. No breakfast food for me at 3:45 this morning. Wanna know what I ate? Chili. Low carb (net 5) chili. Now when I take my medication it makes me very tired so I go back to sleep. I try to take the meds around eight but I usually go down around seven. I can only sleep for about an hour and a half and guess what? I'm hungry. So of course I'm going to eat breakfast again. Now I'm getting a little bit better. When I wake the 2nd time I try just a snack. That just makes me pick.

Okay I better wrap this up. My eyes just opened and this page was shrunk down. So what I am trying to get at is I think my body is out of whack because of my sleep cycle. Just a guess and I might be stretching but this eating so much is very depressing.

And another problem is eating burgers & fries. I need strength to say no. If any of you are the praying type please pray for strength & fill me with patience and understanding. Thanks.

Well that's it in a nutshell. I'm closing out because my eyes are fluttering. 😑

    This would kill me! I do wake up in the middle of the night sometimes, and sometimes I think I am too hungry. Eventually I get up and have a tablespoon of cottage cheese. That usually gets me back to sleep. I never vary the time I get up, though. I just have some nights I get less sleep. It usually doesn't bother me much. I just sleep better the next night.
    Good luck with this problem. Try to get off the sleeping pills. They usually aren't worth the negative consequences...
