A very rude awakening
I have always been late for everything throughout my life. I was born at a very young age. This is probably the reason that I have always been late getting up. For me, waking up is not an event, it's a process. Since I no longer work, the lengthy process of waking up and then getting up has been taking longer and longer. To such an extent that those that know me now call me Vlad (after the famous character from Transilvania).Due to my increased disability and much dimished strength, my bed is now higher, elevated on furniture risers. It helps greatly.
