Sleep? Sleep is for pussies

This is the fourth night in a row that the Bug will not sleep. Five minute increments, that's all I get out of her. And she screams her fucking head off when she's not sleeping. She has no fever, she has no cold, no poopy butt, she's not hungry, she has no fucking reason on earth why she's not sleeping. She won't sleep with me, she won't sleep alone, she just won't sleep. I've had about 7 hours of sleep, total, since Wednesday night. I'm starting to lose it.

I can't even turn my back on her without her shrieking the damned house down. It's making me crazy. I just want her to stop it. Just stop.

The few moments that she did spend dozing tonight I spent shoving TCBIM. trying to get him to turn over and stop snoring. Between the two of them, I'm going to die from sleep deprivation.

It's 2:20 in the morning. I haven't had any sleep yet tonight. I'm starting to think it's not going to happen.

Better make it two units.

Ooo...I'll take a hit or ten of that please.

Sorry you are being kept up - I tend to go a bit crazy when I haven't had much sleep, so I feel your pain.

I hope it gets better quickly!

Sounds terrible! Concerning snoring husbands - well I have decided to psyche myself into "liking it". It is company, I tell myself. It is never going to go away so I have to figure out a way of liking it.

I need that IV this week. I've slept SO MUCH, but am still feeling like I stayed up all night. Not my thyroid, I don't think, just having so much going on.

Hope you find relief soon!

Yikes! Teething, maybe? Cordy would scream some nights with no real symptoms, and then a tooth would pop through a week or two later.

That sounds most bad, friend. MOST BAD!

On the plus side, not sleeping leaves much more time for finding blogs and reading their entire archives.

I used to feed mine standing asleep and walking. I sleep at the all the family gatherings (self defense mechanism). I do the insomnia thing about 4 times a year, but the spuds are the easy part. Wait 'til they're grown. Then they keep you up nights.
