I slept in late with my sick three-year-old because when she doesn’t get any sleep, neither do I. In a moment of fibro-fog last night, I had the three-year-old drink a bunch of water before bed to try to make sure she wouldn’t start coughing when she laid down. Someone turned off the bathroom light so when she got up to go she got scared, laid back down next to me and fell back to sleep. You can guess what happened next. 1:30 am found me tearing the sheets off the bed and stumbling down the stairs to get her clean pajamas. The rest of the night I kept waking up to make sure she didn’t need to go to the bathroom again. Sleeping in until 10 am means nothing to me after all that.
I am still in a ton of pain, both Fibromyalgia and the PMS variety. I feel like there’s a little clawed demon inside my womb, trying to claw it’s way out and I’m being haunted by a ghost who’s punching me in the vagina. Maybe I’m wrong, but menopause can’t be this bad. I already have hot flashes whenever I do more than sit on the couch. My muscles all feel like jello. I was so exhausted before picking up the kids from school that I thought I’d try to take a quarter of a nuvigil. I am unimpressed so far. The last time I took one I had energy but my pain was so bad it didn’t matter. Today’s results are kind of the same. I still hurt, I’m still tired and my muscles still feel like jello. I decided to wash my kitchen curtains and vacuum the dust bunnies off the walls for some ridiculous reason and my arms are shaking and in pain. My back is starting to spasm now. At least I know why I was so depressed the last week.
I’m curious if anyone else has tried nuvigil and what results they had. My doctor said that the patients he’s had try it have loved it.
