Okay, so even though I did get sleepy with the holograms, I didn't sleep. I sat in bed waiting to become tired, watching Family Guy until 1am. I was determined to give these a shot, but I just couldn't handle it anymore. So I gave in & took 1/2 a benedryl & fell asleep somewhere around 1:30am. Hey, I sat there for 2.5 hours! I gave it a true shot. But people with LD don't sleep well and I never take naps. Even though my doc wishes I would. I just can't. I used to be a great napper. I am probably not a good test candidate for the "rest" hologram because of the LD & also because I take LDN (Low Dose Naltrexone) right before I go to sleep. It causes sleep disturbance. Hence the Benedryl. I think the pain holograms may have helped though. They fell off, so I need to find some band aids to re-stick them to my neck.
I didn't wake up until 10:30am. :) The dogs (we have 3) were like, WAKE UP! We need to pee & we are hungry! I need SLEEP to heal. Sleep is good for your immune system. Today was tough waking up to the reality of having Lyme Disease. Made me sad. However, I am handling it better, and I have improved with treatment, and I have just accepted it for what it is. More later . . . .
