Today is one of those days when I can get nothing done, though, and the thought of drinking coffee has crossed my mind. I have been having HORRIBLE sleeping problems for weeks now. Most of it seems to be stomach related. I am not sure what the problem is, but I wake up and my heart is beating like crazy, like I just ran forty flights of stairs. And I have incredible gas. I don't recall having a nightmare or anything else that might cause this, but I can't get back to sleep because it feels like I am having a heart attack and I can't breathe. The only sure for this is to walk around for a few hours, burp a lot, and then I feel better, and go back to sleep. My sleep pattern has been go to bed at 11, wake up around 1, walk around or browse the web until 3 or 4, then wake up for work at around 6. Yeah, about 3 hours of sleep a night some nights. No over-the-counter medicine can seem to to cure this, either. Pepto, Pepcid AC, Gas-X... nothing. I guess I should go to the doctor, but I am so sick of going to the doctor. He's a nice guy and all, but even with small co-pays, it's like $15 a visit, then maybe $15 for meds. But thankfully, the last two nights, I actually slept through the night. And been more tired when I got up! How unfair is that?
