Re: Hyper Alertness

I know that anti depressants i.e. amitriptyline can disrupt sleep. I am like this on any sleep aid I've tried and I've tried a lot over about 15 years. Yes deb, I'll be talking to Dr soon.

Re: Not-so-friendly remimder re unmedicated PMLS

I used to set my phone alarm to ring at the appropriate times during the day i.e. 9am, 1pm, 5pm, 9pm. My grandchildren used to shout to me.... tablet time !!

Somehow this routine disappeared and I think I'll just go now and set up my alarms again.

Re: Hyper Alertness

There is no way I could have continued to work on the sleep I was getting. Being retired means no clock watching during the night and not being worried about the alarm going off for work. However, I just wonder if I've let it go a little too much the other way. At present my sleep aid is amitriptyli...

Re: Another dumb pharmacy trip

This sort of thing shouldn't need to happen. It was a mess up last time on July 27, then because their records are inaccurate this time has also been compromised and you have to wait longer that it should be. This of course messes with our emotions. Even when this current prescription is fulfilled, ...

Re: Severity of RLS/WED?

I consider myself to have severe RLS. My symptoms are 24/7 and I take medication 24/7 which does not always cover the symptoms. Any sedentary time has to be thought about in advance i.e. theater, movies, restaurant, air flights. With my husband on my last 11 hour flight I was highly medicated, over ...

Re: Vacation and RLS

I feel this poem expresses very vividly how mean RLS can be..... Hi my name is restless legs. I am invisible to others. They can’t see me or hear me but YOUR body feels me. I can keep you awake until you're exhausted. Remember when you had energy? In its place I have given you exhaustion. If you hav...

Re: Vacation and RLS

Oozz ---- Ahh.... and there we come to another difficulty. Trying to describe RLS to a non sufferer. Beyond understanding. If I am suffering and need to get up and move about I do so, often just saying ""you must excuse me as I have a movement disorder and walking/stretching may give me te...

Re: Outburst at UPS Store Guy

Hmmm... It's like, when in a bad place you expect nothing of yourself, don't expect wonderment.
And then things aren't so bad and its..... oh Yay.... this is ok. It's still ok. Oh... its' not ok, why did I think it could be ok

EeFall - Know the type of bowls you mean - I've seen some beautiful glass bowls on metal stands but practicality stepped. They would have been (accidentally) subjected to footballs and all sorts in our garden.

Re: What Relationships?

Yes, dh's shoulder should heal ok. Today he is just using paracaetamol and not cocodamol, but didn't make any moves towards working with the pallets, thank goodness. The centre of Storm Ophelia is just over N. Ireland now, 7.30 ish pm, and it's to be rough for a few hours. 50 years since there was a...

Re: What Relationships?

deb - getting him to the doctor is nigh near impossible. Yesterday his plan for today was to start building a wooden box out of old pallets. This box will hold a concrete plinth which in turn will hold a concrete bowl containing a solar water feature - it's just a bubbling of water a few inches high...

Re: What Relationships?

Parts of my limbs are certainly demonic !! Last night my dh couldn't sleep well because of a sore shoulder which has been lingering for several days. I have raging cold symptoms since yesterday, stuffed up nose, headache, and am surrounded by nasal sprays, balm tissues (although I find an old towel ...
