I am a restless sleeper. I can’t get comfortable. It is almost like the story of The Princess and The Pea. We have a pillow top mattress, but I still added one of those memory foam mattress toppers on top of that. I have an ergonomic pillow that molds to the shape of my head, a pillow that is so soft that it has lost its shape and another pillow for my legs so that my feet hang off the edge. The temperature has to be just right-cooler the better, but not cold. The sheets need to have a sateen finish otherwise they are too scratchy for me. I told you that I have sleep issues. However, once I am comfortable, then I fall right asleep. I also have to deal with a sleep apnea machine that drives me crazy! I am horribly picky and I know that I sound crazy.
I don’t feel anxious, however, I am concerned about my lack of sleep. I need to get sleep back. I need restorative sleep to get the rest of my body healing faster.
when you lie down, your sleep will be sweet.
I wake again, because the LORD sustains me.
for you alone, LORD, make me dwell in safety.
