Well I went to see my Doctor yesterday, and he talked to be about my falling asleep and no being able to wake me. Now I have been going months on almost no sleep. Just these black out or what ever you could call them when I fall asleep for about15 hours when no one can wake me. He was happy because as I thought it is my body's way off getting the rest it needed.
So yesterday he gave me a new lot off meds to take and I slept for 8 hours last night.
I still have a mild headache this morning. But it is nothing like I have been suffering.
Praise the Lord.

I am so happy for you!!! Isn't it nice when the doctor finally listens and does something to help us? I have a really good and understanding doctor. I am very happy with him. We are fortunate to have such good doctors. Some people never do find the right one and suffer needlessly.

I hope that your headache goes away. And I am glad that you got some rest. What did he give you? I take ambien and it helps a lot with restful sleep. Though I could sleep 24/7 actually and still be tired without it.

Take care,
Hugs, Karen

This is good news!  I'm glad you had some success at your doctor's and that you got some sleep last night.  I'll pray that it continues,
