MDJunction to me

peasha"This has been one of the most supportive places I have ever been. I found MDJ by mistaking looking for drs to help me with my many health issues and since that day over a year ago I have found a tight nit little family that keeps me going when the times are tough and offers me a place of retreat to share my successes and failures with others. I get to see the humor and seriousness of what I experience as well as the resources to learn about my health conditions. Thanks MDJ" (peasha)

Sleeping days and awake nights

Apr 28 2009

I often have terrible sleep issues. I either dont sleep for days because the pain is so intense, or I sleep for 20 straight hours. My days and nights are flipped around. I often find myself fallingoff to sleep in the day and waking up at night. Once I do fall off to sleep, my pain isn't as bad, until I wake up again.  I need to turn this back around and it's difficult for me to accomplish. I woke at 10:00 p.m. last evening and doubt I will sleep until tonight.

If my family didn't wake me for dinner which is often a late one, I would continue to sleep.

You will notice that my replies to you will most often be early in the morning or late at night. 

I'll soon be forced to wake early and go to bed early when I begin the Compass Program. I will need to be up at 7:00 a.m and in bed by 10:00 p.m. This is going to be a challenge in itself. If I am unable to fall asleep at a decent time, or don't sleep at all, I'll be going to this program dazed.

Today is my first meet with the Physical Therapist and the Psychologist. I am not sure if I'm already in the program and these are just my first 2 appointments to get ready for it or if it's a pre screening. I'll find out today for sure. I go at 2:00 p.m to see the PT and meet with the Psych at 3:00 p.m.

Am a little nervous and am not fully aware of what to expect.

Will know soon enough. 

Should be home by 5:00 p.m PST
