Awake Again At The Crack Of Dawn

I just don't understand why I can't sleep through the night. I wake up in a could sweat and very thirsty. I've mention it to the doctors and they don't seem too concerned. Maybe hormonal. I'm concerned it might have to do with diabetes since so many of my brothers and sisters are. I was tested and ran low blood sugars a few years ago, so they haven't tested me again.

I want to go to church this morning, but it is too early to get ready. I will lay back down for a while and hopefully not over sleep. I really need to go because next week I will still be in the hospital on Sunday, It's cool outside, but not real cold. I keep the house fairly cool during the winter to save on the gas bill, so I'm a little cold.  I think I'll snuggle up for a while longer in my blanket.

I went to church, but had to leave after the song service. I was just in too much pain. I had not taken a pain pill this morning and my knee and back where in severe pain.

Take good care of yourself and do what you need to do for you!

It sounds like perimenopause (which I'm going through too--my last period lasted for two weeks--yuck!) But it could be a side effect of one of the medications. Ask your doctor to check for you, and if s/he won't, get a drug guide (which you may have already, since I know you were a nurse) and check for yourself. I hate to say it but sometimes doctors (not all doctors, but I've encountered more than one that was) are lazy.
I seem to have a thing for parentheses this morning!

I didn't sleep through the night either. No. Fun.

I hope you're able to get to church!

Wishing you well,
