TRY, TRY AGAIN
30 March 2021
I found this shirt on line today. I did not buy it, though was tempted.
Interestingly, the sizes they give are all for men. Not a single women's size. I guess nobody thinks a woman would want to buy a Judy Garland shirt.
So cannabis is not the magic formula. I tried it again last night and this time took my cell phone into the living room with me so I could check how long I slept, but I could not get to sleep at all. I went to the couch at 11:30 and when I checked the time (having tried to get to sleep), it was 3. I finally got up at 4 and watched TV for an hour and then went back to sleep and was able to sleep from 5 to 8. Three hours.
Ned decided maybe I should try liquid. Fortunately, Marta had that too. He told me to put the liquid under my tongue and hold it there for a minute and then swallow (not as delicious as the cannabis gummies were!)
I wasn't sure it was going to work, when I didn't seem to be going to sleep quickly enough (though at one point, I felt like I was sinking into sleep and wondered if this is what it felt like to die.
But I did indeed fall asleep and when I woke up at the time that would ordinarily be 2 a.m., I checked by phone and it was 4:15! I went back to sleep fairly quickly and when I woke up again it was 6:30. Usually by 6:30 I have letters written, this journal finished, coffee drunk and breakfast eaten. But I had slept until 6:30.
When I got up I was dizzy and I almost didn't get up at all, waiting for Ned to come downstairs so I could call and have him help me, but I was so incredibly thirsty that I finally had to get up. I stood up and then sat down in a nearby chair until my head cleared and then walked down to the kitchen, steadying myself on the walls.
I fed Polly and then staggered to the recliner and I slept a bit there too. When Ned made coffee I had him bring me a cup because I was still a bit dizzy, but after about half a cup of coffee, the dizziness was gone.
I'm not going to take anything tonight and just see how things go after a normal (sort of) night of sleep. I really am not interested in regularly taking anything to help me sleep at night, but I have to admit that it was quite nice to be able to do it last night!
