I try not to dwell on my own subsequent unemployment and for the most part I am successful. The lessons have been well worth it. One person can make a difference by taking a stand and i have received letters from the Senator who assures me that she is taking this seriously and i hope this is true. The people who owned this facility own seven more throughout the state and i know from my research that this is a prevalent problem throughout the country. In starting a petition for adult care home reform in North Carolina, I have learned to be proactive and in the time it is taking to see the results of all of this, I am learning patience.
If you suffer from insomnia, your first line of defense is to ensure that the place you sleep is cool, dark and quiet. Use this space — usually your bedroom — for sleeping and sex only. Don’t watch television or read in bed. Avoid caffeine for several hours before bedtime. Try not to get stressed in the two hours before bedtime. While exercise overall can help you get a good night’s sleep, exercise as late as two or three hours before bedtime actually can make it difficult to fall asleep.
I felt really good this morning and I was pretty calm. I gave Kage his antibiotic this morning – which was a fight. He kicked and screamed and fought and part of the medicine ended upon on him, not in him. And i didn’t lose my cool! It was amazing. I didn’t get mad. I didn’t yell at him. I felt completely in control.
According to the US Department of health and human services, in 2008, the average cost of hiring a home health care provider in United States is an hour. The cost may vary depending upon where you live, however. Those in Los Angeles, may have to pay /hour for a home health aide, but those in San Jose, may need to pay /hour for the same in home care.
If you still have trouble falling or staying asleep, a visit with your health care provider is in order. I urge you to forgo taking over-the-counter sleep aids until you’ve met with your physician. He or she may recommend over-the-counter sleep aids such as the supplement melatonin, over the counter antihistamines or a prescription medication such as one of the many available benzodiazepines or other hypnotic agents such as Ambien or Lunesta. Precautions should be taken with sleep aids as some have been known to cause unwanted side effects such as nighttime eating and/or sleep walking. In addition, prescription sleep aids are not to be used for long periods of time.
Fourth, buy yourself a good scale, preferably an accurate digital one. Be prepared to pay at least to for a quality scale. Be aware that some digital scales stop at 300 pounds. Some of the most sophisticated scales can also measure the ratio of body fat to lean muscle mass, referred to as the Body mass index (BMI). A body Mass Index of over 25 usually indicates obesity, although variables such as height can influence your number. The Department of Health and Human Services’ Center for disease control and Prevention (often called the CDC) offers a detailed explanation of the BMI and Java-scripted calculator to determine your own BMI.
It hasn’t been all hunky-dory today though. Kage didn’t sleep great last night and I didn’t really do too good myself. So i was really tired this morning. Mia kept fussing because she was so sleepy and every time I would get her to sleep she would wake up and cry as soon as I put her down. I wanted to scream at her.
