Need More Hours

I have so many things I need/want to do and I just cannot seem to fit them all in during the day. I would cut back on sleep but I am one of these people that cannot function properly on a mere 4 or 5 hours of sleep. Even with 8 hours of sleep and the proper dosage of iron pills as prescribed by my doctor, I am still tired. That is mainly due to the almost non-existent iron in my body (I have severe iron- deficiency anemia and my body cannot hold onto iron which means I have no iron reserve and am always tired). Anyway, I need a few extra hours during the day to get everything done. I really envy those who can go! go! go! with only a few hours of sleep. Anyway, it’s almost 1:30am and I should have went to bed a few hours ago. The cats have been reminding me in a not-so-subtle way that they too are ready to hit the hay. Goodnight all!

    I do not think that I have an iron deficiency, but I do need a lot of sleep. If I don’t get at least 8, I am usually pretty grumpy. And it’s not a good thing having a grumpy Carolynnne around! 🙂

    I’m hoping to go out with him again. But still keeping my options open. You’re like me, I have to take klonopin (generic name), to kill anxiety/panic attacks at night or what have you. However, the anxiety attacks have seemed to have ceased. Don’t have them as much as I used to or that catatonic state where I’d stop breathing for a couple of seconds to a couple of minutes. It’s really bizarre. I’m on the go as soon as I get food in my bottomless pit of a stomach. Than I take my medication for my diabetes and I’m going. Right now, I have allergies since I went out last night. It was windy, and cold. I think I may have allergies but I hope it goes away so I could be fresh and ready for school tomorrow afternoon! I wish you the best of luck!

    I have to sleep 9-10 hours a night to function. I’ve been so furious about it for years, but I’m learning to accept it and manage the time I have instead of focusing on wishing I had more. I’m mostly annoyed when people try and tell me they wish they could sleep so much, with “you’re lazy” judgment. My sisters do that.

    I think I got a little off track there, I was trying to sympathize but went into a rant on a related topic, haha.
