Still all at sea — 5 Comments

  1. Sounds to me like a change of meds may have caused an upset to the routine? Some of those buggers can have some nasty side effects in the nightmare department?

    Have you thought about twin beds, as a temporary measure?

    • Grandad – Good thinking but meds are the same unfortunately. I could be slipping into another dimension entirely?

      As far as twin beds are concerned I did consider it but I couldn’t get the darn chainsaw started so I had to drop that idea. Besides, Laurie wouldn’t allow it. She just spent all that money on protective gear you know.

  2. Sleep is a crazy beast, isn’t it? I’d recommend a larger bed, but Pete tells me there’s not much “open space” within your walls… 😉
    I like that Laurie & I are BOTH thanked profusely when we wake our bedmates out of nightmares… I’m not the one who usually hears anything outside of the bedroom, but I must have some sort of sleeping radar or something for when he starts breathing funny (his classic nightmare response). *HUGS* to you both!
    I’ve been taking melatonin for quite a while, now, to help me sleep more deeply. I also have a night guard for my grinding teeth. 🙁 Then, when I saw the Dr. the other day, he recommended meclizine for dizziness & mentioned that it makes one SLEEPY. He said it’s great for his rare nights when he can’t get to sleep! Recommended a possible half-dose if a full is too much…. I got the bottle of 12.5 mg & a full one of those WORKS, but 1/2 of one ain’t so hot. God luck!!!

    • Hiya Cate! – Welcome to my wee corner of the Innerweb. Sorry about your comment going into moderation like it did but that’s the way I have things set. First comment goes into moderation. You can thank the spammers for that.

      Yup,our place is rather small, cozy and…er…quirky. Just like us if you know what I mean and yeah, our bedroom won’t hold a bed larger than full. Besides, Laurie wouldn’t hear of getting bigger bed even if we had the room. She doesn’t like being that far away from me she says. Just between you and me though, I think she just doesn’t want to make a queen size quilt for it. 😉

      Unfortunately, I take too much medication already so adding another pill probably isn’t wise. Besides, I’ve suffered from insomnia all my life and believe me, I’ve tried everything. I finally gave up artificial means of getting to sleep and I just deal with it. The older I get the more sleep I seem to be getting so that’s good? (I hope).

      Happy Thanksgiving to the both of you, by the way. And may you sleep well.
