Trying to Sleep

     After 1AM, can’t go to sleep.  Allodynia is bad tonight, skin is sensitive, touch of sheets, blankets, bed underneath, all painful.  Already on full dose of gabapentin (1200mg 3x day), almost full dose of nortriptyline, these are not working adequately.

     If I had known about peripheral neuropathy, how painful it is, and it’s relationship with diabetes, I would have kept much better care of myself.

     I wish they would invent a way to send information back to the past and I could warn myself of the traps I’ll be falling into ahead of time.  I would be healthier, my children would be healthier.  Life would be better.
