Title

A very rude awakening

Body

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.

Ouch!  Sounds jolly painful so I am not surprised that you are only just starting your pulse! To cheer you up, let me tell you about my story:  I was once kicked out of bed by David, who was having a nightmare.  Boot: "Who's that?" he called, sitting bolt upright.   "It's alright, I'm down here," I called.  Luckily it  was quite a low divan, so I didn't have far to fall, not the dining chair height Edwardian bed that we sleep in now.I'll keep my fingers and toes crossed for you................Sarah

Completed Stratton/Wheldon regime for aggressive secondary progressive MS in June 2007, after four years, three of which intermittent.   Still improving bit by bit and no relapses since finishing treatment.

Well, I did believe him and nearly twenty five years later we are still sharing the same bed!  Luckily for David, me and many other people, I think!.....................Sarah

Hey ...Judging by The Catalyst documentary, you must be one of the most treasured wives in England. But you knew that anyway ... as did we all.I still find the image hilariously funny: you popping up and saying "I'm here!"I suppose that my incident could have been funny if it wasn't quite as painful and bloody.As Chloe points out, it gives a whole new meaning to getting out of the wrong side of the bed.SmileG.

Oh SG!how are you now, recovered from the fall? It sounds like you had a ‘duh’ moment. How’s the baby? the scraped toe sounds awful! Harm to that digit is horrible, it catches on everything and makes shoes the objects of torture! As if walking wasn’t tough enough already!  But we live and laugh! I’m so glad you’re still with us, and i think the employment of two bints is a great Idea!Jane
