Night Sweats & Insomnia

Aug 27, 2010 - 0 comments

The last few weeks have been difficult.
I do not fall asleep before 2am or 3am.
I usually play a mind numbing game on my DS until 0100 (in the hope that it will put me to sleep!), and then turn the lights off.
I toss and turn and wait for sleep to come.
Even if I'm exhausted, I still can't fall asleep!
I dread to go to bed ...
Also I have those horrible night sweats.
I keep the bedroom dead cold, and only have a few covers. When I fall asleep I am even a bit cold.
Then I wake up some hours later completely drenched.
The strangest thing is that my lower legs, feet, and hands are as cold as ice.
So much so that I have to put my electric blanket on when I play my DS.
It can take more than 1 hour before they warm up.
Those night sweats seem to happen when the weather gets colder.
Despite being in August, it has been real cold for the past few weeks.

Trouble Falling Asleep

Aug 20, 2010 - 0 comments

Went to bed at 2310, but did not fall asleep before midnight.
I was so tired even with my nap during the day, so I'm quite desapointed.
Kept waking up every hour in the first half of the night, and then every few hours.
Going to bed early does not seem to work.
I'll try one o'clock tonight as the last few nights I fell asleep quite quick going to bed at that time.
