Farewell to the old
« on: May 31, 2006, 03:05:41 PM »
Hi all

So it's finally farewell to the old and time to welcome in the new, it's 7am here in NZ, and I've been up since 4.30 after yet another bad night..looks like I'm going to have to succumb and start those sleeping pills the Doc gave me.

I have spent the last hour looking through some of the posts in the "Old" forum hoping I can committ some of them to memory, it will be sad to see them finally go..but we all have to move with the times..some of the stuff here still confuses me...but at least I have mastered the GLOWY THING ;D.

I'm out for the day..I have my talk with the Meds students to day, I just hope I can stay awake long enough to answer their questions.

Hope you all have a good day.

Hugs
Jan :-*

Doh I thought I was going to be first to post.

Ahh the old forum. She was a fine ship.
NB. Any advice about HIV is given in addition to your own medical advice and not intended to replace it. You should never make clinical decisions based on what anyone says on the internet but rather check with your ID doctor first. Discussions from the internet are just that - Discussions. They may give you food for thought, but they should not direct you to do anything but fuel discussion.

HAVE A GREAT DAY JAN!!
I mastered the glowy thing too, with John's help of course. :D  That's what you need Jan, a John to help you figure out all the new fangled stuff. ;):D

Listen, if you're not sleeping well, you should take the pills.  You won't have to take them forever, just until to you get back into a normal sleep routine.  You need to get some sleep, so just do it.  There's nothing to worry about.  Try it for a few nights and see what happens.  I used to take them on occasion and found that once I was on track again, I wouldn't need them for a very long time.  I've even stock-piled the pills, just in case, ya know?  I hope you get some rest darling...sleep, Jan, sleep, sleeeeeep...

Love you

Trish :-*

Jan, how long has the sleeping problem been going on? What does your doctor say about it? You may have already gone through all of these possibilities for helping you to settle down,  but music? recorded story reading? Tea? Deep breathing/meditation? A movie on tv will often put me out, but I know for some that's a wake up.

Just wondering.....

Jan,

Are you taking sustiva ? Andy made a suggestion about music. Well Celine Dion would make you sleep like a baby...anything for not hearing her anymore means a very deep sleep.  :-X

Take the pills, Darlin'.  If in doubt, do what Nancy Reagan really meant:  "Just Say No Half"
