Lack of sleep is killing us!!!

So, I don't think it is gaps that is making me a f'in freak! I think it is getting anywhere from a whopping 2 to 4 hour of sleep a night! I am not talking a little fogged brain and a little of my rocker, I am talking screaming crying and begging in the fetal position for sleep, from not only Kline but god! I am one crazy mo' fo' with out sleep! Kline seems to be handling it better than I am and so is my husband.

This is how our sleepless nights go......

I work until 2:30am get home and often Kline is up, either he woke up and is itchy like crazy or he hasn't ever gone to sleep. Then I take a bath to wash off all of my dust mites and Kline and I try to go to sleep...normally falling a sleep between 4am and 6am, then if I am lucky he will sleep 2hours, wake yet again and have an itching fit, go back to sleep till 10 or 11am. This fucking sucks people!!! Never in a million years did I think my 3year old would sleep worse than a newborn!!!!!

I pray that this will get better for all of our sanity! I ordered special eczema pajama's from Europe that are supposed to help with the itching, I hope they get here soon, before I really lose it!

Well, I hope you all sleep well, I doubt we will!

  1. Loren, So sorry to hear that the sleeping isn't going well for you guys. Have you started the Gaps1 or 2 yet? Are you sure you don't want to try Stanford Medical Center for Eczema? Have you talked to the Gap specialist anymore? What do the pajamas have that supposedly help with the itching? We are praying and thinking about you all the time. Love you! Mar and Dad

  2. Here is something I just started researching and is in the mail. Dr Oz recommends it and it is all natural and safe. I am really cautious and for me to take it is saying something. Aztaxanthin Read some of the reviews here at this link or elsewhere. It is great for inflammation among other things

    It is supposed to be #2 for importance after Vitamin D (btw, has he been checked for those levels? Important for skin) I just had my sons and mine checked. Mine was 25 and his 30 and they should be around 80.

    Also, is your son taking fish oils? ****EXTREMELY IMPORTANT**** Give him more than the daily recommendation for adults. It won't hurt him. Best brand is Nordic Naturals. Let me know if you want advice on which one.
