I haven't gotten out of bed before 11:00am for years. Of course, having chronic fatigue is one reason it's been so hard, and I thought it was the only reason.
Surprisingly, I was wrong.
After the fiasco with my meds, lasting two months, I have found a rather great outcome. (No, we aren't finished messing with the meds.) Now my body wakes up betwen 7-8am and it doesn't want to go back to sleep! At first, I kept trying to go back to sleep after getting Dear Daughter off to school, but it just wasn't happpening!
It took me a week to realize what what going on! Dense, I know. So now I actually beat the alarm clock! I don't ever remember THAT happening.
Now the problem is remembering to turn the alarm OFF before leaving the bedroom!
