Sleep deprivation is a killer

The journey from Cornwall was rough as I ate at weird times of day and was very naughty and drank a latte at 2.30PM.  Ha ha I knew what might happen with this but I was hoping I’d sneak through it.

Unfortunately I didn’t get any sleep on Thursdsy night apart from 19 minutes according to my Fitbit at 5.45am, on the sofa.

My massage helped to relax me enough to get another hour at 11.30am,then I managed another 2 later in the afternoon.

Stuff this so I had a sleeping tablet at 9 and went to bed ‘out of my head’ on a zopicline.

Now I don’t take these every day, only once a week/fortnight and I managed to break through the 6 hour barrier last night after staying in bed for 13 hours.

All the blue bits on the picture are restless thrashing about, the dark bits are sleep.  Over 7 hours restlessness and 6 hours sleep.

I can hear the doctor now ‘you should go to bed the same time every night and wake up the same time very day’ well screw you doctor I’ll do it my way.  Weekends are for catch up, week days are for routine 👌

Hi there, I am a busy mum who had found a new lease in life by completing my diploma in Hypnotherapy and NLP and led a successful part-time online hypnotherapy business, preparing personalised online recordings and using tried and tested NLP techniques as homework for my clients. I found out I had advanced degenerative disease in my spine over 10 years ago and then spondyliothesis 4 years ago. 2 of my lumbar discs collapsed and I needed a fusion in March 2014, but left the other collapsed disc in place. It was then that things got really weird. It took me over 2 years to get diagnosed with Fibromyalgia which I developed after the surgery and that is when the fun started........ I now have Osteoarthritis in my neck and have another 2 discs that are collapsing into my spinal column. I am considering having a double fusion to reduce the pain.
