Ever have a craving? Maybe chocolate, or soda or if pregnant pickles and ice cream….I am craving SLEEP. It has been a couple weeks of maybe a couple hours of sleep a night if lucky. I fall asleep for an hour and then wide awake. Sometimes I wish I was back to a small child and I could take a nap. Just doesn’t happen. Having a child with SPD can mean sleep issues and that is the case with my son. He wonders the house at night sleeps for an hour or so and then up for the rest of the night. It is hard on this momma worrying what is he doing, what is he up to. Now I have my own mind racing at 100mph at night. Do you know the stupid thing you can worry about at night…it is stupid stuff. Going from normal hearing or near normal to needing hearing aids in a 2 week period can cause lots of thinking and reflecting. My mind goes to why, can people notice, will it get worse. I know it could be a lot worse but in the middle of the night I am sorry you think about yourself, or at least I do. As I drink my sleepy time tea tonight I pray that these worries will subside and my mind can be like my SPD son and just crash. He gets to Thursday night each week and just crashes. I need a Thursday night. To all the other SPD moms out there they know that days can be hard and nights can be harder. We all need that Thursday night once and a while.
