I wish I could sleep 9 or 10 hrs straight. Got 7 night before last, but only about 5 last night - dogs keep not cooperating... And I keep staying up too late. I'll take a nap after I mow here in a few min (if the rain will just say away for another hour). I'm gonna have my son start the mower for me - no way I'm gonna try to pull that cord yet! I saw you mowed the other day - assume you have a riding lawn mower with an ignition key or something? Hope you're not trying to pull the cord on a push mower! If I could/would get more sleep, I'd feel a lot more motivated. Gonna make concerted effort to get to bed earlier - it's just been kinda nice to stay up since I don't have to work in the morning. But yea, I gotta get back into a routine soon, and kick recovery into 2nd gear - as I'll have to go back to work one of these weeks. Putting it off as long as I can, even though I could easily go back now - just want to milk this as long as I can. Don't tell my company!
just had that thing about losing everything onc typed, arghhh frustrating huh!
Saw your post about 12 of 14 day of yuk weather and that really sucks, i can relate that in these long days of little agenda, am also more motivated when the weather cooperates.
Find my motivation to do stuff this week is low, whereas last 2 weeks had young niece caring for me and driving me around, so felt we needed to do more so she would not be bored with her stay.
I guess i can be thankful that i no longer require OTC sleeping pills, heck, find myself sleeping 9-10 hours continuous and have not done that since my 20's i think.
There may be some danger to that routine, after all will need to get back to work & all routine sometime soon.
We have likely both realized that rehab is very much a mind game and I guess it is time to get to 2nd gear so need to make conscious effort to do stuff.
Wow, I think that's the same date as 3 others that posted tonight (if I remember right). Can't remember who all they were but I made a comment about triplets! Dang - the links don't work huh... Well, go to the link below then and scroll down to the bottom where he is like just getting home and when he's a week out and 2 weeks out from surgery. Inspiring (in my opinion)! PS - don't look at the ones where he had issues with his scar until after you've looked at his earlier ones (the ones where his scar had to be re-stitched are kinda icky, and that's not very common).
I just joined this site and ran across your profile. It looks like we are close to the same age and similar conditions. I was just told my my cardiologist that OHS may not be far off for me. Any advice?
