Wednesday Koffee Klatch
     If you are new to this forum family then you may be wondering what kind of goofy question is that on a health care forum. idea   We all suffer with medical conditions and with most of us there is pain involved...sometimes a lot of pain. Or maybe you are the loved one of one of these persons. This forum is all about how we help and support each other, how we gain back more quality to our lives, and how we can learn and share what we gain along the way and hopefully make not only our lives better but the lives of others who come to join us.

      But we need to also remember that there is the other side of life...the side that isn't concentrated on illness and pain. That's why we started the daily Koffee Klatch. This is a time to laugh, reminisce, chit-chat about the silly things in our lives...all fun things and no pain. In fact the 'P' word is not allowed...  turn    So each day we share our thoughts or experiences on a different topic. Often it includes food, sometimes we talk about our past, and other times we just get goofy! Laughter is our goal. So, please join us whether this is your very first day on Healing Well or you're a seasoned veteran.
Daily Question:
Do you take naps during the day?

And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood

Prior to the birth of the girls... yes, I'd usually do an hour nap in the early afternoon - which made me functional and give me a second wind to make it through until night. Now, though, I'm not able to do that.... at most, I'm able to rest for 1/2 hour in the early afternoon, but not sleep.

I do, unless distracted by activity or special occasions. If at home and on my own my eyes will cross I get so sleepy at about 9:30. I sleep about an hour and can go till evening. If I don't get a morning one, I want an evening one about 4 or 5.

Yes I do. My life seems like nothing more than a series of naps sometimes. It has been 10 years since I have been able to sleep more than 4-5 hours at a time to I usually end up taking a 4 hour nap at some point during the day.

I don't usually take naps, but the last few days I have. My sleeping is so messed up right now that I fall asleep sitting on the couch watching tv.
