at the risk of being being dull and repetitive - ow...... i'm beginning to despair of ever having a full night's sleep. it's a bit like having an internal infant chivvying you to get up and walk around trying to soothe it back to sleep.

although the pain isn't as bad as it was last night when i was weeping with the pointiness of it the perpetual toothache in my back is really starting to get to me.  i'm not sure how well the epidural worked but i had hoped that it would be better than this.

and the middle of the night is a lonely place

Christmas Prayers for a full nights sleep winging your way. when I have the same problem as you I find if I get as comfortable as I can and breathe slowly through my nose in for the count of three think relax out for the count of three think relax. Repeat. Really hard to do when all you want to do is scream but it is a good way to get to sleep.

I'm so sorry to hear this, as I thought you might be getting there after your last treatment. Being a mum and running a house and job doesn't allow you to just stop and think of yourself alone; there's just too much stuff that needs doing. Hope the Dr can find something which will give you some relief soon. xx Big Xmas hug.
