Horrible sleep with the CPAP machine. No deep sleep, awake constantly. Woke for good at 7:30am (new clock-back time) and couldn’t get out of bed for 3 hours. Very unlike me. Just so sore, so tired, so swollen, can’t move my neck, eyes look like I ate MSG for dinner. First things I did this morning were spray IcyHot on my back, put an ice pack on my neck and take a Solpadeine. Yesterday, I took 2900 steps ~ way more than ever before ~ but, I think I would have been okay if I had had a decent night’s sleep. Fingers crossed that I can work through this stiffness and be okay this evening.
The greatest trick the Devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn’t exist. I will be grateful that my eyes were opened. I will believe there is a reason. I will be thankful that I no longer abuse my body with constant stress and pressure. And that I now know the importance ~ no, the absolute necessity ~ of taking steps towards making my body, mind and environment healthier. This invisible disease is my hell and I know it exists.
