WORDS FROM DREAMS

WORDS FROM DREAMS

They whisper to me, from the blue, it seems,
Intruding on thoughts already in line.
Gentle, yet strong, come words from my dreams,
They try to take over this process of mine.

As sleep overtakes me, I still feel awake,
Confusing this is and I blush from inside.
Imagine the image my nonsense will make,
What witness is with me on this verbal ride ?

Although I’m embarrassed, it’s humorous, too…
Two conversations all at the same time.
“It’s just narcolepsy”, I chatter to you,
"Not really that bad, just a habit of mine !"

I’ve gotten quite used to it all at this point,
The two conversations at times do blend in.
But I worry, could they put someone out of joint ?
I can’t let that happen, I think with chagrin !

So off to the doctor, I must have some rest…
Looking for answers to fix what is wrong.
Easy, he says…we’ll just give you a test,
A one-night sleepover, it won’t be that long.

We’ll get you adjusted and back on your track,
That old narcolepsy will soon cease to be.
We make an appointment to start our attack,
On this puzzling malady bothering me.

I wait for that day to be here with suspense,
Will sleep in a strange place bring answers to light ?
Time will tell; until then, I straddle this fence…
Narcolepsy, the thief of a good sleep at night.

This poem comes from a condition I am attempting to correct, Narcolepsy. I start to fall asleep in the middle of conversations, and begin a whole new one as I do !! I usually wake up when this happens, but it's amusingly embarassing. I'm going to do a sleep study next month to find some answers. Until then, I must wonder what is coming out of my mouth next...LOL !!! By the way, I am wide awake right now....hee heeee heeeeee !!! :lol: :lol: :lol:

AWW....THANKS, KAY !! YEAH, I STILL HAVE BOXES IN MY APARTMENT TO GO THROUGH. PUTTING THE STUFF IN PLASTIC BINS FOR STORAGE. WHEN THEY'RE OUT OF HERE, THEN I CAN CONTINUE TO GET ORGANIZED. IT REALLY DOES TAKE A LONG TIME....

LOVE, LINNER... :D :wink:

That doesn't sound like much fun Lindy, not at all. You must not get the real sleep that you need because of this. Will keep you in my prayers. First time I ever heard of this condition also, have heard of others. God bless you my friend, and heal you likewise. GLYASDI
Live today as if it were your last, for tomorrow it will be your past, but live it with peace in mind, joy to find, and for God divine!

Hi my sweet dear friend, Linda,
What an awesome poem you have written again, darling!!
I am so sorry to hear about your sleeping troubles.
I know it looks like some problem when one can't sleep at night.
It has happened to me all my life. I have had to use the aid of sleeping pills.
I still suffer from sleeping disorders, so I understand you very well.
However, I don't fall asleep during conversations.
Actually, I have hard times in falling asleep at all...
I'll be praying for your complete healings and prompt recovery
about your sleeping troubles. I've never heard of the word "Narcolepsy."
See you later, dear friend.
God bless you, Linda, and those you love!!
I love your family pictures.
Blessings & Prayers,
Monica.
Condorfromtheandes.

Howdy there Linda, well written, eye catching, awesome poem you have penned here....I symphansize with you on the lack of sleep, and hope the doctor can find a solution that will provide a remedy for you...
Perhaps taking a little time and going out on a date with a special someone might be helpful for you too, as it seems you have neglected yourself the enjoyment of that sort of companionship, just a reflecting thought here....Good luck, best wishes for a complete recovery....Starvin' Marvin

Hope it all works out to the good for you, Linner. Our neighbor had that problem years ago as well.
I don't know what they did for it. Awesome poem!

HELLO, YOU ALL WHO COMMENTED HERE !!! JUST WANT TO SAY IT WAS DISCOVERED I SUFFERED FROM A COMMON MALADY MANY PEOPLE SHARE !!! THAT WAS WHAT I CAME TO REALIZE AND UNDERSTAND... JUST RECENTLY HERE IN 2016 !!

IT IS AN ILLNESS CALLED "OVER-WORKED" AND WAS CASUALLY MENTIONED TO ME BY MY FRIEND, RUTHIE, WHO WORKS AT OUR INFORMATION DESK. AS AN OBSERVER, SHE SAW ME GO FROM ONE DAY AND NIGHT RIGHT INTO THE NEXT, AND SOMETIMES THE NEXT...WITHOUT RESTING !!!!!!!!!! JUST THAT WAS THE ANSWER, NO FANCY MEDICINE NEEDED, NO MYSTERIOUS ILLNESS, JUST ME NEEDING TO RECOGNIZE THE SIGNS OF ONCOMING TIREDNESS AND WHEN TO LAY DOWN FOR REST OR SLEEP. AND WHEN TO STOP WORKING ON EVERYTHING UNDER THE SUN IN MY CRAFTS.

I'D BEEN HAVING SOME PRETTY HAIRY FALLS, TOO...JUST DROPPING IN A SUDDEN BLACKOUT AND WAKING UP ON THE WAY DOWN ...THINKING, "OHHH NOOOOO...WHERE AM I GONNA LAND ?".

PRETTY SCARY...AND NO MEDICAL PERSON THOUGHT TO CHECK THAT OUT. THANK YOU, GOD, FOR RUTHIE !!!!
Always be kind and fair; it all comes back to you in time ! Image
