My one true love on sleepless nights

Now that Covid is finally getting out of my system on Sunday I was able to sleep for the first time in almost a month using my CPAP. I still woke up a lot, but I was able to get back to sleep and best of all when I got up in the morning I was not disoriented.

Sadly last night was as good. I had breathing issues, issues with my back, and general depression. I went to bed at about midnight and woke up at 3:45 a.m. never getting back to sleep. It is 9:45 a.m. now and I am exhausted.

Post Covid Issues

I am still having some post covid issues. At points while I can take now deep breath, which I could not do a week ago, great struggle to do so. I still have a slight cough.

Additionally, every night at around 7 p.m. I start feeling bad. My breathing gets worse and I kind of feel like someone is sitting on my chest. I am starting to think that that made me an issue with my meds. I take my meds twice a day once at 8 a.m. and once at 8 p.m. and about an hour after taking the night meds I start feeling better.

I have to get in and see a doctor


My Positive Covid Test

Okay, so my plans that I referenced yesterday may have to be put on hold. My dad has been sick for a few days and Monday was diagnosed with Covid-19. At the time, my brother and I tested negative. However, we both started feeling sick yesterday and today we both also tested positive.

With all my health problems this has me really worried.

6 months?

Has it really been six months since my last post? Wow!

Well, that explains why I just had to delete almost six hundred SPAM comments. The spammers look for blogs that have been abandoned to post comments with links back to their scams. Sorry scammers I had the site set to require me to approve all posts.

So why have I not posted in six months? I did not abandon this site as such, I had abandoned my life. Between my health issues, the health issues of my family members, and many other things I had just lost all drive to move forward with my life or for that matter to do anything at all. I had just locked myself away in my room watching my life slip away, only occasionally experiencing life.

That is going to change!!! I will make a post soon explaining how and why.

My Doctor Dumped Me

After almost 20 years of being his patient my primary care doctor dumped me. I knew it was coming. When I was in the hospital the last time, I had a nurse say to me “wow, he really does not like you.” and even though I had just been to see him at his office a week or two before my recent ER visit for my back, he told the ER doctor he had not been his patient for years.

I really don’t blame him, I wish he had not made me look bad by telling them I was lying, but he is now a kidney specialist and I was his last primary care patient. So, what do I do? I have no idea how to find a new doctor.
