lol wow maybe I'll think about it.. It would be great to sleep all night.

Quoting Mrs.Kubalabuku:


Oh, I know that feeling.  But they aren't there watching.  they are in another room, probably watching TV and periodically checking to make sure the equipment is still working.  If you aren't sleeping well, consider it.  I felt silly going in because I basically function and while annoying, I didn't think exploding head or sleep paralysis was dangerous, and the nurse told me a story of a woman who never woke up feeling rested, and it turns out she'd have seizures before reaching REM cycles!  The only symptom the woman really experienced was fatigue, but it was a major medical concern.  She assured me too many people play off sleep issues, but changes in sleep patterns or chronic fatigue are some early indicators to some terrible problems.

And once I got settled it was kind of nice.  In an odd way it was like having my Mom check on me throughout the night.  She'd pop in, check the electrodes, tuck the blanket back down, and gingerly pat my shoulder from time to time.  LOL

Quoting goddess99:

I don't think I would be able to fall asleep. Knowing people are watching me and stuff lol.

Quoting Mrs.Kubalabuku:


You should get a sleep study!  Without insurance mine would have cost just under $600.  So it is doable.  They aren't as bad as people think.  But if you have insurance, ask for a referral for one.  They hook you up to all these electrodes and monitors, but then the bed is like a comfy hotel bed in a tiny hotel room.  you run some calibration tests, like blink X times, twitch your leg, etc.  Then, you just lay back and fall asleep.

Quoting goddess99:

Oh I know what you mean. I've always had a hard time sleeping and my dh just sleeps like a baby everynight. pisses me off lol.

Quoting Mrs.Kubalabuku:


LOL

It is a REALLY COOL NAME for something that is not so cool!

Basically, just before or during a REM cycle you think you hear a noise, and wake up instantly alert and pumped with adrenaline.  It takes a while to get back to sleep because of the adrenaline.  And, you have to convince yourself you didn't hear said noise.  (Like your name being called, or a sudden bang.)

And thanks.  It's been over 5 years since I've had a proper night's sleep.  I get by, some weeks are better than others.  But I want to sleep like DH does.  I get so jealous when I pop awake and see him there, sleeping calmly for 8 hours at a time.

Quoting goddess99:

Oh gezz, exploding head syndrome doesn't sound good at all. Hope they can help you!!

Quoting Mrs.Kubalabuku:

I had a sleep study Sunday night.  It was AWFUL and I'm still tired.  And now I'm anxious about what the results were.  I know I had exploding head syndrome and sleep paralysis while being monitored.  I just don't know what they plan to do about it.

Hello ladies!

I am on my lunch break eating a grilled chicken salad. I am feeling pretty good after my morning coffee lol. I just found out recently that I lost another pound, yay, go me! So I have officially lost 18 pounds since January. Just another 18 to go, but I am feeling fabulous and look pretty good for having a 4 month old :-)

Have a fantabulous day ladies!
