It has been three months since my last post. I have spent these months searching for medical help with my Delayed Sleep Phase Disorder. None of the so-called “sleep” doctors I’ve been to ever mentioned the possibility of DSPD. In desperation, I just sent an email out to a neuropsychologist because the stress has affected my usually-easy-going temperament, and I don’t even like myself any more.
Also, during these few months, the family brought a rescue dog home. He was smart, sweet, and cute, but he would not stop biting when playing. He went back to the rescue. So, last week, they brought home a cute, sweet, gentle rescue kitten, who is still sequestered in the upstairs bedrooms because their current prissy cat refuses to have any of it.
My plans, after the holidays, is to go the shelter and get a senior cat who just wants to snuggle. I need the companionship. I need the touching.
I need to find a way out of his personal sleep hell. It has affected my digestion, because when I eat depends on when I sleep. When should I take my meds? I often don’t even know what day it is. It’s making me crazy.
ADDENDUM: My daughter just told me that when I got home from the store yesterday, I left my car running in the driveway. It’s a good thing my grandson noticed the car’s lights were on. I am definitely losing it, fast.
