still sleepy

I really need to make the appointment with my PCP. I nodded off this morning while I was cooking hubby's meals for the rest of the week in the form of lasagna and didn't wake up till it had been in the oven 3 hours and 15 minutes instead of 45. The noodles were like rubber. I had to toss it. It was inedible.

We can't afford to waste food like that. Hubby has now made a rule that I cannot bake stuff unless someone is home to check on me. It's a reasonable rule, but it hurts nonetheless. It's ridiculous that I can't even stay awake for ten minutes. I had already made the dish and put it in the oven. I got up to go to the bathroom and before I sat down I looked at the timer and saw that I had 10 minutes left on it. I fell hard asleep that fast and slept for 2 hours and 45 minutes.

I haven't seen the doc in 2 years anyhow...I guess it's about time.

I just don't like doctors, even the ones I have to see on a routine basis.

day 963

Dr. P, my pain doc, offered to write a letter to the insurance company to see if she can get me approved for Provigil so I can be up in the daytime and sleep at night like I should be doing. I'm hoping it works. This upside down routine is bugging me a lot.

My psychiatrist suggested I might have narcolepsy because I have been falling asleep while sitting up, while eating or drinking coffee and the like. I will mention that to my internist when I see her this week.

I'm glad I'm on Methadone right now. I'm sure it's helping with my badly bruised tailbone. It hurts like heck even with the pain meds.

I am so tired...

May 7

I see the pain doc today at 10.

I'm going to tell her they denied the Provigil and see if she has any other ideas. It was nice when I was taking that pill because it kept me awake all day and then I could sleep at night but that isn't happening any more.

I have to figure out a new combination of early afternoon meds. Right now the ones I take in the afternoon make me so sick I want to throw up. That's no fun at all.

I still have the edema from the Methadone but it's not as bad because I make sure to keep my feet up as much as I can.

I'm starting to get really tired now after being up all night. I think maybe I'll go take a nap for a while.

This is no fun at all.
