S is for sleep, something that used to be a good friend of mine but we have fallen out in recent times!

I used to love 11pm because that was our bed time, we would snuggle up in bed together and fall asleep cuddled up.  It was my fave time of day!

Then came the night sweats, I couldnt go anywhere near him at night time because he was soaked in sweat,  This is when I first started to worry about him and what prompted me to nag him to go to the doctor.  Since then night times have never been the same.

When I first moved in with him it took me ages to get used to sleeping in the same bed as someone else but then it got to the point where I couldnt sleep without him in bed.  His arms around me made me feel safe and I could fall asleep with ease.

I have now got used to not sleeping because we are not cuddled up so that is why I am sat here at 01:17am typing this instead of being in bed snuggling up!
Just another sign of how life has changed for us :o(


  1. I was suffering extreme night sweats for a while and then I discovered it was apparently due to diabetes. Now with medication and better control I rarely have them, but they are miserable when they happen.

    Tossing It Out

  2. sleep is such a fickle friend. I wish it visited me more!
    Great meeting you through the A-Z!


  3. Life just has a way of throwing punches at us when we least expect them. Fortunately, finding a network of support, such as people from the A-Z Challenge, can offer a little help and hope. My thoughts are with you and your fiance during this battle with cancer.

  4. Here's to making it this far,congratulations! I have an award for you!!

  5. Now following your blog. I look forward to reading more and wish your husband every ounce of luck for a speedy recovery xx

  6. The same thing happened to me- but with Hypoglycemia. I got so used to being in bed with someone and cuddling that when I started getting too hot I didn't want anyone near me and sweat galore. Definitely medication makes all the difference.
