Tomorrow I am headed to a trip down to LA to conduct a sleep study. I have to check in later in the evening, so my husband and I are hoping to go down early, and kind of take a look of the town. The last time I was in LA was for my bachelorette party/girls weekend, which was really nice. I'm not sure if my husband's ever been to LA or not to tell you the truth.
The sleep study is only a concern because I have a hard time falling asleep. Last night I went to bed around 4 am, and the night before that was 3 am. I'm known to stay up all hours of the night, even if I have to get up early in the morning. It's a bit annoying at times. I'm hoping that I just need a new schedule and nothing is wrong with me. We'll see; tonight my goal is to be in bed before midnight, so I'll keep my fingers crossed.
Then Saturday morning when I wake up, I go straight over to the EGD/endoscopy. They're hoping I'll be awake around 7/7:30 am so they can start prepping me. How many people who have sleeping disorders actually wake up at 7 am? Just curious. I know when I make it to bed anytime after 3 am, I usually don't wake up until 9 or 10 am; later if I had the time to sleep in. There are days where I literally waste the day sleeping, which doesn't help the cause of not getting to bed at a decent hour. Even on days where I get minimal sleep, I'm still up until about 2 am, then I'm exhausted.
Every night seems to be a battle with forcing myself to go to sleep. It's frustrating, and overwhelming, but hopefully nothing is wrong with me and it's just me needing to be on a schedule.
Saturday's EGD will be my first experience going under anesthesia, and I am slightly nervous about that. Since I'm a paranoid person in general, anesthesia scares me. Even though the doctor's always say they've done XYZ amount of surgeries, and 100% of their patients have woken up...what if I'm the one that doesn't? Crazy thinking, I'm aware. I'm not as worried as I originally was, because I trust that I'll be fine.
- Until next time.
