I'm having trouble again. I was doing fine right after the mc, but I think it was exhaustion. Now I've hit that point again where the grief is really flowing, and sure enough, I'm up at night again more than I want to be. I'm so sick of this whole experience.
It kind of varies for me. Some nights I crash on the couch at 9:30, others I'm wide awake at 2:00. I know my bronchitis is part of it, because the decongestant raises my heart rate and keeps me up. The rest is just finding a way to calm my thoughts before bed. If I can do that, I sleep easily, but that's not always possible.
To me, it seems like it's been forever, but today is just 4 weeks since the bad u/s. I'm sure I'll go a bit backwards when we first get to Colorado, as it'll be the first time seeing MIL since the loss. She knows about it, but don't know how she'll act around me (she's not very good with emotions) so it may be kind of weird at first. I'm taking my sleep meds, just in case.
I hope you get to start sleeping again. It's miserable staying up late and still having to drag off to work in the morning.
Do not sorrow; the joy of the Lord is your strength." Neh. 8:10
