It isn’t insomnia because I am actually able to fall asleep. There was a point last night when when I was so tired that I was just sort of walking around the house in a daze. I got my cup of milk and went to bed and considered reading but it took too much effort to hold my e reader open so I closed my eyes and was asleep within seconds. Now it is coming up 5:00 in the morning and I am wide awake. This is a drag because my circadian rhythm is completely messed up. Sleepiness will come over me at about 6:00 and then I will sleep way too late and then the same thing will happen tomorrow night. It seems as if this is not uncommon because the hysterectomy site I go on has a group of women who had a hysterectomy the same week as I and most of us are having the same problem. Maybe it is hormones? Did you know that even if you keep your ovaries they go through a time where they shut down after a hysterectomy? No, I didn’t either.
Did I mention that I got a new e reader? I had a first generation Sony e reader and it was the coolest thing for its time but it eventually kinda got all buggy. Before buying the Kindle I did a lot of research and wanted the one you can drop in water but it was too expensive. Now I have the Kindle and I am loving it. It will never ever replace books for me but I do like it a lot. My old reader didn’t have a light on it and this one does. I also like my e reader because some of you have books that I was only able to read on my laptop before but now I can read on my Kindle. Yay!
Why am I so hungry? I just had a big bowl of my homemade chicken vegetable soup and a piece of pizza and I am still ravenous. I am not a small woman and have to watch every mouthful lest I end up on a TV show about weight intervention. I guess that is not a nice thing to say. But my German/Austrian blood flows thick in these veins and I will never be a small woman.
TMI Alert. Yesterday I posted about having problems with constipation since my surgery. It was my own fault because I got too cocky and stopped taking the Lactulose the surgeon recommended I take. I started taking it again and everything is as it should be. Having a good shit takes 10 years off, I am not kidding.
