HI Y'ALL, For the three weeks or so I have been sleeping my days away. Just some background on me: I am on Contin 20mg twice daily, Oxycodone 10 mg every 4 hours and valium 5mg twice daily pen for spasm. This has been my regimen since my surgery was done back on November 2013...no changes at all. I am doing water PT twice weekly started last week. It is not strenuous or long is duration, maybe 25 minutes in the tub altogether. My sleeping disorder started prior to PT. Anyway, what I'm trying to get to is: Can a person get too much sleep? Do I give in to my body's ceaseless craving just to go to bed and sleep? This has been my scenario: Wake up and take meds, fall asleep till hubby brings me a cup of coffee 40 minutes later.
Eat breakfast with hubby and discuss days events, current news, etc for ~1 hour. Hubby goes off to the gym and I get up, brush teeth, dress up, go downstairs to straighten things up (nothing I'm not suppose to do). Go back upstairs and start a project like painting, sewing, reading or watch TMC movies (I'm addicted to them). No sooner do I hit the recliner or the bed (depends on my comfort level) I'm out cold, in and out of that sort of dream-like state of sleep that last all day. Mind you I'll get up to use bathroom, let dog out and try not to dwell on the fact that I can't wait to go back to bed. Very unhealthy? or very necessary?
I don't know why the sudden case of sleepiness but I can't help it. I'm falling asleep as I'm writing this topic but then jolt awake.
I am only suppose to do water PT and walk, no stretching, lifting,etc til further notice. Walking outside has been horrendous due to recent snow/ice storms so I take every opportunity to join hubby for any errands needed for house like grocery shopping, home depot etc. While he's doing the shopping I'll walk around the store till he text's me "time to go". Then back home and back to bed, seriously trying to do any of the above mentioned activities before the sleep fairy reappears.
So does this sound familiar to any of you out there? I am feeling so quilty not doing anything "constructive" but that's an all together subject for me that I wouldn't dare bore you with.
Input? Advice? Anything?
It's been a chore reading this I'm sure and for that I am eternally grateful.
