“How did it get to be so late so soon?”
Boy do I completely and wholly understand that question as well as the humor in it? Let me explain…
For the past couple of years I have been having trouble sleeping (stop laughing Sarah). I have no trouble getting to sleep, just trouble staying asleep. I get an average of 2-4 hours a night. When I wasn’t working, it wasn’t a big deal but after working 8 hours with just a little sleep ….phew this girl is tired!
Considering this lack of sleep and working all day, it is difficult to muster the energy to sew on weekdays. All I want to do is eat a bite, check Facebook, Instagram, catch up on Downton Abbey (or some other equally fabulous show) and then I’m down for the count by 8 pm(for a minute anyway). Add to all this the fact that its dark by 6 pm and you can count me useless most weekdays. I finally decided enough is enough and made a doctor’s appt to see if he could find out the problem….Guess what he said….MENOPAUSE…..shocked? not really!!!!!
So, I am trying some over-the-counter all natural meds to see if it helps. If it doesn’t then I am going on “the patch”!!! I am OVER THIS MESS!!!! It’s supposed to take 4-12 weeks for this natural business to do its job…but I have it on a very short leash! I don’t have long…according to the doctor I need to remember I am “getting old”. I told him I would try but remembering things is hard at my age…..and I’m almost psycho!
I have only one question for y’all ……How did it get to be so late so soon in life?
