MightyMouse Posted April 5, 2006 Report Share Posted April 5, 2006 All the stars must have been aligned perfectly last night, because I tried a bunch of the tips you all gave and managed to get full night's sleep! I think the combo of a bath just before bed, dropping the heat an extra few degrees helped me to fall asleep at a decent hour. Getting out of bed...well, that's another story!!! Now if I could just shake this darned infection. I stopped the steroids on Sunday because...well... you all lived with me through my maniacal moments, so I know I don't need to explain further. Also, I'm all puffed up now--on a good note, my bp is lovely. I only have 2 days of antibiotics left--and I can't say I'm much better than last week. My lungs sound nasty and gurgly...or as Teri said when listening to them tonight "harmonicas". I nebulized with the big mamajama nebulizer and will bring it with me to work tomorrow. I'll be ding danged if I spend my week off next week feeling miserable with this. I know others have mentioned it, but the aftermath of the recent round of the flu is tenacious! This all started almost 3 weeks ago now with a stomach bug. I need to shake this before I fly on Friday. I did buy trip insurance for the first time in YEARS, but I sure hope not to use it. Off to bed, and thankful that I'm probably going to sleep tonight. Many thanks to you all for the help you offered. And to those who are up late reading and need sleep, may those Zzzzs find you soon.Nina Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
