My apolgies for the silence

Since the 7th of August, I have been struggling with very little sleep.  So far, it has won and even with medication from the doctor to help, I am only able to snatch the occasional sleep which is not a restful one at all.

As you can imagine, my brain is having trouble coping and there were some days I was even afraid to turn on the stove to make supper.

I contacted Telehealth, did research on the internet and read a wonderful book on sleep that my son gave me.  I am doing everything in my power to beat this problem.  I am now waiting for a spot at a sleep disorder clinic. Hopefully that will help as I am missing so many things.  I missed a trip to St. Jacobs with my Montreal friends, medical appointmentss and other things as it was too risky for me to go outside by myself.

So far, the winner is not me!  On a happier and productive note, a friend of mine, Mohammad, called for me after work yesterday and we went to the Radius Cafe on James South for a couple of hours.  It was very nice of him to think of that idea.  He treated me to a nice quiche which was very tasty.

One of the positive things also is that my downsizing is going quite well.  I do a little bit each day and when I am back to normal, I will take it all to the Salvation Army. 

That is the reason for the long silence.  I don't have much to say and it is very hard to concentrate with lack of sleep.

Thanks for reading this blog and drop by at any time.
