Hello Ambien My Old Friend...TT Diaries, Day 5
One of the hardest things about recovering from the TT has been the nights. At the Pearl I had the kraft-matic (ha!) adjustable bed to wiggle myself into various positions. Now that I am home it's so hard to get comfortable. I feel like Carol Burnett whipping all around throwing pillows. I prop up a million pillows but keep sliding down, shove them between my legs, trying to sleep! I keep waking up from the pain!
I tried to take extra Darvaset to off set the pain the other night, BIG MISTAKE. I started freaking out, thinking things were attacking me and feeling claustrophobic about my stomach brace.
I have a stomach brace on that is so tight it makes my yummie tummie seem like a hula hoop. I am sucked and tucked with tubes coming out for drainage. GORGEOUS. Too bad. I have a flat tummy! Hooray!
Anyway, nights have been awful and torturous.
The answer? Ambien. Ambien kisses you on the cheek and says "night night darling". I slept well last night. Hubby even said "you didn't move all night!". I know he was thrilled to not be woken up every two minutes.
I now know only one Darvaset every 4-6 hours. Poor hubby having to adjust me around and put up with my tantrums. I feel bad for him. He will be glad though when he's got a hot wife in a bikini!!! (Right, probably a cute one piece)
Overall doing well. Going to the doctors today for a little check up so I'll let you know what they say also.
On board for this weekend?
