I realized something, that I live day to day maybe more than some people. I won't know when I will no longer be able to sleep with my current meds. It will just happen.
Of course no one knows what is going to happen tomorrow. It just feels like those of us who have this disease live differently than most people.
My husbands misery reminded me of when I have had no sleep, and pacing.
Luckily I have slept the last two nights. I thought I was feeling pretty good today. Then a friend called me tonight and told me I sounded very tired. I guess I sound tired most of the time.


Poor hubby - I've heard how miserable shingles can be.

I've slept 3-4 hours for the last few nights and am reminded how fragile ANY improvement is for us. Can be gone so quickly.

This is very odd. My poor husband can't sleep tonight because of his legs. He is having pain. First it was on the back side of his thighs, now in the back side of the calves. He is sitting in bed, with knees bent, less moving from side to side not together. He says it makes the whole body feel better, there is a discomfort/ pain all over. I know he doesn't have what I have but I keep telling him I know how he feels.

At least for me, there is a lot of comfort in knowing the other person "gets" it.
