I am so tired....

If I weren't so tired I probably...
Cook more so I'd eat better and if I ate better, I'd exercise more so I'd sleep better.

But as any one can tell, when you've slept in the same bed with the same person for more that 18 years, when they don't sleep, you don't sleep and no amount of otherwise healthy living on your part is going to cure that.

My darling husband hasn't been sleeping well for a long time. You see he has a case of restless leg syndrome (my guess) and a pinched nerve either in his foot or his back (I'm guessing here as well) but of course we don't know for sure because he won't go to the doctor to have it looked at.

Now most of the time unless there's an obvious wound, trying to diagnose something like "a pain in my leg" is a bit "there's a strange noise, that only happens sometimes," under the hood of your car and it take some trial and error to pin point the problem.

Actually, I thinks it's easier to pin point and fix that strange noise than fixing the human body but I still have a weird whistling noise coming from under the dash that my mechanic swears only I can hear it.

But with that all said, you still needs to take the first step and try the doctor, instead of yelling "Go to the doctor!! no way they don't know anything, they just want to cheat you out of your money, they never fix anything." and then whine "my leg hurts."

When he doesn't sleep, I don't sleep. Sigh. Love hurts.


  1. Maybe you can find some information there: It's the National Institutes of Health and my favorite go-to place for consumer medical advice.

  2. I know this is going to sound crazy, and if you already do this, disregard.
    Cut out sugar. All processed sugar. It stopped my restless legs. In 2003 Derek and I went on the Atkins diet, I remember having restless legs on a pretty regular basis, and although I'm not completely sugar-free now (I still don't keep it in my house, just candy now and then, which I am giving up again due to the high volume in my lower half) I can count how many times I've had restless legs since then. Hey! Its worth a try!
