It’s All Going to Hell

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.

  1. I hope you find a cuddly senior cat. Also that you get some regular sleep. What did the neuropsychologist say, if anything? We still like you, even if you’re not sure of yourself. Let’s Zoom during the holidays. Sending virtual hugs, Fran

  2. Good to hear from you. Sorry sleep is still an issue for you. I persisted in taking nothing to aid in sleeping, and went to bed at hours before midnight for days on end and after several weeks seem to have gotten back into the groove of decent sleep. Am a night owl by nature at this stage of my life and keep infringing on what works but so far I seem to be getting by. What works for one doesn’t necessarily for another, so hope you’re able to solve your issues soon.

    Hope these holidays have been special for you in some ways. Do stay safe.
