Dudley Feels Like Crap Today ...

I did not get much sleep last night. I was unable to breath due to this head cold. I tried breathing with my BiPap machine and Oxygen Concentrator but every time I would insert the breathing device into my nostrils, my nose would start running like a faucet and it was not going to work no matter what I did. I tossed and turned all night and only slept in short spurts when I would quit breathing and it would wake me up. I hope I will have better luck tonight but will just have to see. Damn this is hard on me and makes me feel like I have been run over by a truck the next day. Living with a progressive neuro muscular disease is not easy let me tell you. If it were not for my kids, I think I would just give up sometimes. But I know they need me whether they realize it or not.

I've got a medical problem I have to deal with, though not as severe as yours, Dudley. But you just have to work through it as best you can, because you're right, your family does need you. Not being able to sleep and having to choose between being "drugged up" or hurting is not a good thing. But we just get to play the hand life deals us, and as people say every day, life is not fair. Hope you get to feeling better.
Hang in there my friend...hope tonight is a better one.
Thanks Hermit and GuyK, I got a little more sleep last night and hope to sleep some more tonight.
