Feeling my age

Since the surgery, I am so sleepy. I wake up at the first morning light, around 5:30 am. After lunch, I take a luxurious 2-hour nap. I'm starting to look at the clock at 8pm to go to bed but it's still light out, so we usually go to bed around 9:30. I'm told since I am healing, my body needs the sleep. I also sleep soundly at night.

Today I had BIG PLANS. I wanted to go to the craft store to purchase something I could do - some lite grocery shopping and maybe go over to the garden center. I only made it to Trader Joes and to Winco and I was hurting and tired. Dang, it's so frustrating.

So I am home - husband is out finishing up on errands.

We did go out to dinner with the step-daughter on Friday. She is not a very good conversationist. She is intellectually disabled and she pretty much stays within a certain predictable dialogue. After that, NOTHING. We have to carry the conversation. She did say she found another bedbug - they came out and sprayed. She is back at her thrift store job. She said she has learned her lesson yet, her place is back to being cluttered and a pig sty. We just don't know how to reach her. Sometimes we think that maybe she should be in a group home.

All of that tires my 65-year-old brain. I'd rather take a nap.

Also, I have no appetite. I do eat - my 3 squares, but nothing tastes good. It's like my taste buds are out of whack. Things I used to enjoy, just taste blah to me now.

We're having a NY steak tonight so maybe I need BEEF! They did say I need to eat a lot of protein.


  1. I could endure the pain and tiredness, but the loss of taste? I don't know.

  2. Sounds like your body needs the rest so that you can heal, so keep taking the naps. If you are still on the strong painkillers then they might be responsible for your lack of appetite, that happened to me and when I finally stopped them I did have a better appetite. All the best.

  3. Naps are awesome I have one most days


Comments are good - I admit, sometimes I don't respond back, in time for a dialog. I bad! I will TRY and do better. Thanks for understanding.
