Day 26: Why so sleepy?


Fucking exhausted.
I cannot understand what is up with my sleep schedule. My body is totally sapped. Slept untill 11 a.m. today but barely had the energy to do anything. Went to work around 7 p.m. — a new record for a design day. I had things to do but as soon as I placed a few things on the page, I fell asleep — full on, to the wall asleep — across my page proofs. And nobody even said anything!

I was drowsy and hadn’t even taken anything sleep-inducing, so after about 4 hours I call it quits and went home and went to bed at 11:45 p.m. This is getting nuts!

Note: Hoping to be at work early in the morning, I slept from 11:45-ish p.m. to my alarm at 8:30 a.m. without waking in the night. I promptly turned off the alarm and didn’t get up again until 11-ish … and still didn’t feel rested! I can’t tell if I’m sleeping too much or if my body needs more sleep, and I haven’t been to the gym once this week. Damn it!

  1. this sounds like me on a daily basis! I am at least 2 hrs late to work everyday…and just in the past week I’ve taken a nap at my desk…twice. Luckily I have some flexibility. I have no idea what feeling “rested” is like! I always wondered why this was so until I realized I have endo…so I’m blaming that ;)

  2. It sucks, right? It doesn’t help that the pain meds have a side effect of sleepiness.

    When was your laparoscopy?

  3. i had my lap at the end of january. just two weeks into lupron but I think you know that…

  4. Endo takes the blame for a lot of things, with good reason. I really hope Lupron helps you, because I was 20 and a junior in college when I did it, and was really unhappy. Gained 40 pounds, hot flashes, still bleeding, still pain, bitchy, all the good stuff. I spent a lot of time telling people to be good to their mothers as they go through menopause!
