The "i" word


Another night of interrupted sleep. This morning (to be accurate this afternoon) when I cleaned my teeth the muscles ached from holding my toothbrush. But we who live with chronic fatigue have coping strategies – mine was to lower my arm.

I hope I get some decent sleep tonight. It wasn’t so much that I couldn’t sleep (though there were long periods where I couldn’t) but that the sleep I got didn’t leave me refreshed like sleep should do.
