Before the industrial revolution, our ancestors in Europe slept like that. They went to sleep at sundown, got up early to take care of their animals and then went back to sleep until the sun was up and bright.

Working in factories made it necessary for people to work eight to twelve hours and then sleep eight hours. We are raised to sleep eight hours as kids in school. As we get older, if we do not need to be on an eight hour sleep schedule for work, we tend to do what you are doing now. The two things that made the eight hour sleep cycle possible were electric lights and coffee. If I am working an eight hour a day job, I have a tendency to go back to sleeping eight hours at a time.

I do think it can be a symptom of age. People need less sleep as they get older. Mine is often broken up like that, too. It rarely was when I was younger.

Mornin y'all.

I'm not sure what my mom has planned but I'm likely to stay home. I do need to pick up prescriptions...well I have to. I've been up since before midnight sick. Stomach, sore throat, chills , serious headache and nausea. It's all made my body hurt so very much. I feel like I've been beat with a baseball bat. To say the least I'm miserable.

QOTD: my WLS and revision did nothing for the hunger part. I still fight hunger a lot of the time if not all the time.

food is a piece of bread to take my meds with...without the crust. The rest is so very up in the air.

I do hope you're able to stay home and get some rest. Feel better.

I took an extra Tylenol with my T4 and it finally calmed it down a bit. My head is still killing me but the legs are a bit better.

Thank you!

Sounds like you need a Covid test. Hope you feel better soon. How was your birthday celebration?

Thanks! I am negative so far.

my birthday is the 11th, I told my mom all I wanted was to not have to cook ANYTHING. My brother will get pizza and we'll get a premade dessert. She is also giving me some money to go on a new phone.

I'm glad you told your family you didn't want to cook. Pizza and cake sound perfect
