I normally sleep 6-7 hours per day here. Most of the reason is because my back hurts if I am in bed longer than that. I almost never sleep at the same time two days in a row. For the last 10 days or so I have been staying awake all night and go to bed about 6-8 AM. Yesterday I went to bed about 8 AM and as a rare occasion I slept about 10 hours.
Even during a good sleep I toss and turn a lot. Yesterday was no exception. Nor was the sore back I woke up with. Normally my pain is in the center of my lower back. This one is mid height on my left side. It feels like someone beat me with a 2 X 4. The longer the day went the worse my back got. It is now 1 AM and I am having spasms in my back that are extremely painful.
If this is what old age is all about, I do not want any part of it ! ! ! I can remember my dad saying several times to take him out and shoot him because he was tired of the pain he was in. I fully understand that now.
I have been relatively pain free for the last few weeks and I miss the good times. lol
Oh well, this too shall pass.
I plan to go home sometime mid to late July and go fishing for one week the middle of August.
