I had insomnia for decades with lyme, lived on naps and redbull. Or be homeless. Sleeping in then simply meant I had insomnia till 3 or 4, then finally drifted off till 10 or so on days off work.
Fast forward: after lyme treatment / abx/ gut health, I can sleep pertaining to my bodies needs.
Im also not a strict "bed-timer" up at Adam type ect, never will be, in part due to my free spirit and sometimes irregular work load. In addition to full time also have a part time repair/rebuild gig of my own as time allows (enough to turn work away).
A longer or more intense day requires more sleep. I usually sleep in with no alarm clock on Sundays after a long intense Saturday and never know when I will wake. Im sure my body needs this..
***BUT is there any science behind why so much sleep 9-10 hours can make many people feel like a lazy blob the next day??** .....................(worked my arse off Sat and slept in, thus my lazy arse today on the internet).
Not really a lyme question, but something I started wondering about
since I can sleep again.
Initial lyme symptoms in late 80's, again with bullseye early 90's. Started ABX 2014, ended in Jan 2016. Flares ended after. Lyme "B gone" as far as I can tell (Cured?). Now: Healing the aftermath-Rebuilding / fine tuning / fixing muscles and still improving nutrition and immune via better gut health. + 20 years of Hashimoto is now improving. Nodule B-gone too.
