Sleep had always been one of my blessings, at least for the last twenty years or so.
I can sleep any time, any where. And I sleep deeply. Nothing wakes me up!
When my kids were little, they learned the hard way that when they wake me up, I will say anything (including utter nonsense) to make them go away so I can get back to sleep. And I will not remember what I said, or even that we had a conversation!
But lately, I have had a tougher time falling asleep.
Part of it might be the afternoon naps, but I doubt it. They never disrupted my sleep before.
Part of it might be the constant pain. Though I am taking more pain killers, and my back definitely hurts less when I am lying down.
I suspect there is something else going on, but I am not sure what it is yet.
All I can say is I am so tired, and it is frustrating not to be able to fall asleep so easily....
Please daven (or send happy, healing thoughts) for RivkA bat Teirtzel.
With love and optimism,
