...well, actually it's an issue with waking up. I was thinking today...
As long as I can remember, it's been crazy hard for me to get up every morning. No matter how long I sleep, no matter what I did the day/night before, nothing seems to matter...I always wake up immediately wanting to go back to sleep. Subconciously, I usually hit the snooze until that very last second before I'm going to be late...I even have reset the alarm and don't remember doing it.
Years ago, I went to a sleep specialist and he had no idea what the problem was, what he was talking about...nothing...all he knew was how to charge ludacris rates for doing nothing. I remember one day I had an appt for 2 or whatever, I got there at 1:50 or so, sat there till almost 2:30 before finally being called back. I sat down in his office, he asked me "is the medication helping?" I said no. "Well come back in a week and maybe we'll try something different" he said never looking up from writing my prescription refill.
Total time waiting in the waiting room, around a half hour. Total time in office being "treated", MAYBE 5 min. Bill for this visit: $75.
I never went back.
From then on, I just kinda delt with the problem as best I could.
I had surgery for a hernia last saturday and I've been on pain medication ever since. I've been taking ~6-8 percocet 5s for the past week for pain. In this week, I've waken up at ~10 am every day and rolled right out of bed feeling refreshed and ready to go like I never really have. Despite getting only 4-6 hrs of sleep (as little as only 3 hrs some nights), I feel great.
Did I find a "cure" for my problem? Obviously I can't take pain killers for ever but I really like not feeling like crap every morning. What's going on? Any ideas?
