Well I can’t sleep, might as well blog….

Okay this is ridiculous.  It’s 12:22 people….hey that’s my birthday!  

I saw a rheumatologist today at my internal medicine group doctor office.   Yes indeedee I have fibromyalgia, along with osteoarthritis, bursitis, and some questionable spots on my face.  And by the way, hows about a couple of injections in your hips….ummm…no thank you, really I’m not that bad….

So my new gung-ho doctor puts me on amitriptyline, which is supposed to help me sleep AND a prednisone taper.  Oh goody, I already cannot sleep.  I’m sure once I start the predisone I will be up for the next 10 days. Perfect, just in time to have a visit from my 2.5 year old granddaughter, for whom I made this very cute quilt.  Notice the backing, so soft polka dot minkey, notice the already tired looking me, and that was after a good night’s sleep:

I also made matching doll blankets for Ally and my little neighbor Paisley:

Here they are having a snack, notice the rice chip hanging out of Ally’s mouth, no doubt with hummus on it:

Anyway back to drugs…. I could take an ambien, but oh no I had to look up amitriptyline on drugs.com and there is an interaction with Ambien, it could make me tooooo sleepppyyyy… but I dunno at this point I am willing to chance it.  Maybe first I will go turn on the TV and see if there is anything so boring it will put me to sleep, like a good infomercial….

Oh no… is that a hunger pain I just felt?????

  1. You poor sleepless thing. Prednisone makes me feel like a housewife on speed, lol! I would be vacuuming at 3 a.m. and my house has never again looked as good.

  2. I’m so sorry about your health problems. Your quilt is gorgeous though! I’m sure your granddaughter loves it.

    Ok…so I usually read your 52 weeks of organizing posts and today I noticed your Fibromyalgia button! I have FM too! I was diagnosed at 18 years old and am ALWAYS tired and in pain…it is such a wonderful life. I was on medications until I moved to AZ (from WA…Go Cougs…couldn’t help it…I saw the little one in a COUG shirt). In AZ I find that I am able to cope with the FM better and don’t currently take and meds. It helps that the weather is mostly stable (changes in the barometer set me off). Anyway…just wanted to let you know you are not alone. Take care! and Go Cougs! 😉

    Sleeplessness is AWFUL! I hope you can manage to get some sleep.

    I love the quilts. The doll ones are so sweet. I just LOVE the red one. The print and color combinations are great!
