Three In a Row!

“The best cure for insomnia is to get a lot of sleep.” 
W.C. Fields

This morning I’m celebrating a minor miracle at my house.

For the past three nights I have gone to bed, fallen asleep and then woken in the morning.

It’s been years (at least fifteen!) since I’ve had an uninterrupted night’s sleep, and I can’t think of the last time I had three in a row.

Usually I’ve found it hard to fall asleep because of pain. Or pain has woken me up. Or a bladder infection. Or both.

At my worst I was waking up hourly because of my bladder. And a good night meant that I’d get up maybe three times to pee.

The longest time I’d go between waking for any reason was maybe three hours.

And then this miracle happened.

Three nights where I have gone to bed, fallen asleep, slept all night, woke up in the morning.

I am finding it hard to explain how incredible this feels. How marvellous. How miraculous.

I went to bed and slept. Then I woke up and it was morning.

Actually, I’m crying now, writing this.

It’s amazing. Wow.

Dear Lymies and friends with seemingly intractable health problems, don’t ever give up. If it changes for me it can change for you too.

Biggest hugs, Nicole  xx

  1. The angels are nurturing and supporting you Nicole, you love and support so many this is their miracle to you 🙏❤️

  2. Wow, wow, wow!!! I know how miraculous this is and just how delicious a whole night’s sleep is. You feel like a completely different person!! You are an inspiration to me!!

  3. Totally get this. It feels so great having a good night sleep. The new bed seems to be a winner and your health getting stronger. Px

  4. It is good when we sleep right through a night, I generally wake a few times a night to go to the toilet and some nights it takes ages to fall asleep which is frustrating, we take sleep for granted till we find it not happening as easy as we expect it too

  5. OMG! I’m so happy for you! I would so love that. My sleep is generally like yours has been. To wake up just two or three times is a miracle for me.
