Still NO Sleep — 6 Comments

  1. It’s good to hear you’re feeling stronger but the sleep is important..give the sleep study a go…you’ve nothing to lose… Don’t worry that you haven’t time to blogaround….getting everything sorted re the estate and getting yourself as healthy as you can is the most important thing.

  2. I think it would be weird to try to sleep in a strange place with all those electrodes stuck to you, but it’s definitely worth a try. I hope you have a great day today, Ruth!

  3. This sleep thing is a real problem and maybe the study will provide a solution of sorts. My husband has had two of them, once before surgery and one afterwards for sleep apnea. He didn’t feel like he got much sleep at the center, but it was enough to know he stops breathing many times during the night. Yikes!

    Good luck. I’m just glad you are keeping the Village going. Thanks.

  4. Here’s something to think about- People with PD seem to get a double whammy when it comes to sleep disturbances. Parkinson’s itself can cause insomnia, and if that isn’t bad enough…so can the majority of medications used to treat the disease.

    As for the sleep study, I highly reccomend it; both as a nurse, and as someone who has gone through it. I found that I stopped breathing over 700 times in a 6 hour period. They set me up with a machine, and now I sleep like a baby. I still have some insomnia- I don’t usually go to bed until past midnight, but when I do hit the sack I sleep so much better than I ever did before. (Treating sleep apnea is also known to clear your thought processes and lower blood pressure.) Good Luck.

  5. Just wanted to let you know I’ve been thinking about you- hope you get some sleep and don’t worry about blogging rounds- you’re in my thoughts and prayers.

  6. Thanks, Shelia, Joe, and Ruth, for the support you continue to give me. I’m keeping a sleep diary now, which shows clearly just how little I’m getting every day.

    As for BLOG VILLAGE, Shelia, I’m trying my best to keep it going.
