For the first time in a long time I actually found myself in a situation where I was too wnarm to sleep. This never happens me. I have poor circulation and I am always, always, always, cold.
I crave heat constantly, and when we do actually get some sun in the UK and the rest of the population seems to go into meltdown and starts complaining that it’s too hot, my mood gets a massive boost. It’s a rare day that I feel too warm, so when I do, it must be warm.
Last night / this morning the heat woke me up and I needed a drink. I had one but still couldn’t get back to sleep so I wondered round my boyfriend’s flat for a wout hile, looking for somewhere cool to sit for a while, then went back to bed.
That’s when the backache started; the one that I get right in the base of my back that makes it feel weak. I tossed and turned, and tried laying on my front and do other bits of physio that wouldn’t wake Rob up. I lay there for about an hour, not knowing what time it was and trying to decide if I should get up and read.That’s when I realised it was about 6am7am.
I can deal with my body keeping me awake at 6am. That I can handle. In fact, it was kind of a relief knowing that it was an acceptable time to get up and start doing things.I much perfer it to staring at the clock and realising it’s 4am!
Good job, cerebral palsy. I’m proud of you.
