poliphilo has been quite poorly this week. So bad in fact that on Thursday he came to bed early; Friday he spent most of the day in bed and again last night he came to bed when I did at 9pm.
My other half
Partly because of worrying about him I haven't slept well myself. I often don't these days and spend quite a bit of time listening to him snore - or just stop breathing at times - during the night.
I try to sneak up on sleep. I've got into the habit of going to bed very early - often as early as 7pm - often I read. I don't read any new books in an evening, at the moment I'm reading through the works of Charles Dickens, though sometimes I'll read a magazine - short stories are fine. If I start a new book I know that I'll want to finish it before I sleep. So I read for an hour or so; perhaps have a cup of cocoa. I'll have had my tablets - 120mg dihydracodeine, 2 paracetamol, a statin, 75mg aspirin, quinine, citalopram and metformin after my evening meal and usually after a couple of hours I start to nod off.
This last few days it's been up to bed, light off, sleep - and it doesn't work for me. Last night I ended up having about a pint of Ginger Beer - a nice sweet soda - in the hope that the sugar would knock me out. I should have had a nice strong cup of coffee - that usually works better.
Anyway poliphilo is feeling much better (thankfully - I don't funtion well without him), I've just had my tablets and now I'm off o sneak up on sleep
Goodnight all - sweet dreams
