Sleep Deprivation-Induced Burnout
Here we are on post number 407 and I don’t recall ever writing a new post without first catching up on comments moderation for previous posts. Well, I guess there is a first for everything. I just wanted to start by acknowledging that I am aware that there are still a couple of blog comments sitting in moderation and I apologize for not having gotten to them yet. My time and energy has been a bit scattered recently and as a result my usual routines for staying on top of things aren’t cutting it. There haven’t been enough hours in the day lately. So, I will get to the comments as soon as possible. (I generally post comments and my replies to them at the same time and I haven’t had time to handle them properly). I’d rather hold off and give them the attention they deserve than rush them through.
So, I really appreciate your patience very much.
I also have many blogs to visit and on which to leave comments. Unfortunately, I am going through a period of difficulty keeping up with everything. I just wanted you to know that I haven’t forgotten you if you haven’t heard from me very recently.
This post will be short and sweet. In fact, I am going to try to set a record for brevity. We’ll see how I do. (Anyone who knows me very well is probably chuckling heartily at this point).
I selected the dreamcatcher photo above because I am sleep deprived and I’m hoping to get some sound sleep. I don’t expect to have any dreams. This is due to the fact that the CPAP headgear I wear for my sleep apnea is not operational now and that means I am not getting any of the restorative sleep phase (according to what the sleep disorder clinic found when my sleep apnea was diagnosed). I won’t bore you with what lengths I have gone to in order to be able to wear my CPAP headgear without having an allergic reaction or sensitivity issue (you really don’t want to know how long I’ve been battling with the CPAP headgear). The bottom line is that I don’t ever get good quality sleep unless my CPAP is working properly and it’s not.
The best I can hope for is to get to bed at a decent hour (which has not been happening with months of severe insomnia). I have my third cervicogenic migraine physical therapy appointment tomorrow and I need to get enough rest to be safe for driving through the snow. (It’s an hour away on a good weather day). So, I just wanted to post a quick update. I look forward to being able to write more in the future about how my physical therapy is going. I just don’t have that kind of energy tonight. Besides, I’m on the very beginning of my cervicogenic migraine physical therapy journey. So, I’m still getting my feet wet.
One last thing I should mention for those of you who have read about the hormonal fluctuation migraines I’ve been having, physical therapy won’t help that at all. The PT is for my neck. I will explain this better in a future post.
