We’re the Products of Poor Sleep

1 Comment

Poor quality and duration. I think the sleep issues are showing up. I find that I’m tired in the late afternoon or evening-especially after doctor’s appointments. And it isn’t just me – Dennis is suffering with this too.

Even with all of these pillows, we struggle to relax enough to sleep deeply.


I think he’s having trouble with frightening scenarios that cycle through your head. Even more than me – now anyway. I’ve sort of found that I can stop this with a prayer and with replaying the positive affirmations of doctors.

I wake up (whenever I wake up) with the intense need to get up and get going – to get something done. Somehow everything stands out to me – all of the details – especially ones that are out of place and in need of attention.

I keep hoping for a night when I sleep for a block of time longer than 2-3 hours. 4 hours, 5 hours and a glorious 6 hours seem miraculous at this point.

A few months ago I wasn't but now I'm a statistic. That doesn't define me. I'm a daughter, a sister, a wife, a step mom, a grandmother, a friend and a Christian. I will continue to love exercise, music, cooking and food, and my family and friends. I'm stubborn, energetic, giving and too OCD for my own good sometimes. And I'm going to stay this way - despite cancer and the treatments that it takes to give it the royal beatdown.

  1. Remember Numbers 6: 24 – 26, and Peter Lutkin. Bob
