The little green butterfly is a'coming

My dear primary care physician is prescribing Lunesta for me. I'm thrilled. Perhaps it is because I haven't slept in 48 hours and I don't have an infant screaming at my tit. Perhaps it is because when I don't sleep my heart gets terribly congested and I end up not being able to breathe because I'm coughing too much. Perhaps it's because I'm hallucinating and I can't regulate my blood sugar anymore. I don't give a shit why, I just want the drugs. Unfortunately, I can't get them until Friday, but you bet your ass I'll be at my pharmacy bright and early begging for the damn pills.

They better work because I'm about to go off the deep end from lack of sleep. The Boy has declared that I've become nocturnal and he's right. But even worse, he's now worried that I'm going into hibernation soon. I wish. A nice warm cozy cave sounds pretty good about now. So does 3 months of sleep. If only I could get cable and ondemand in a cave, I'd be fine.

Every muscle in my body aches because I can't sleep. My head is about to explode from lack of sleep. How do I survive two more days of this? Anyone want to come over and read Pride and Prejudice to me while I cough up a lung?

Maybe coffee will help. I know that sounds backwards, but sometimes caffiene will have a reverse effect on some people. (and sometimes not)
I'm nocturnal too. Well, Friday is a good day to get the pills, right? I mean, then you can just sleep straight thru Sunday?
Seriously though, I hope the pills help you & you get the rest you need.

I hope the pills help you out! You'll have to let us know...I have been considering talking to the ole Navy Docs about it as well....I haven't slept properly in quite some time...and I always feel like I got smashed by a mack truck coming down 95 from a hill at top speed...but I digress...enjoy the pills, sleep well, and tell your son not to worry....he's got his siter to keep him company if you hibernate! ;)

You do not want Lunesta. You know how the commercial states "bad taste" as a side effect? It's not that the pill tastes bad when you take it, it's a three day long aftertaste that makes you want to vomit.
Try Restoril, or Trazodone. I've had wonderful experiences with them

Anonymous breast cancer statistics said...

I was searching through Blogger to see if I can find some information on breast cancer statistics. I stumbled on your blog, as this was not quite what I was looking for about breast cancer statistics. I did however read your blog and found it quite interesting, keep up the good work and hopefully I will visit it again.
