Nasty "C" word! What is stage 3? I've had 3 on my face, one of them a
recurrence on my cheek about a year after the first was removed. That
was about 30 or more years ago. My father-in-law had many of them,
thanks to using a sun lamp for years....his went too far! He always
talked about feeling "movement" as being the sign that he had another,
so when I felt "movement", like a bug on my skin, I got to the doc
quickly. None of mine left scars that show now.
My daughter had a nasty injury about a year and a half ago, compound
fracture of her nose, with a deep gash across the bridge of her nose.
Her plastic surgeon was doing a fellowship in nasal reconstruction; did
a great job. He moved to Texas when he finished.
Anxiety? Hyperthyroid? This is only at night? Can it be sleep apnea?
On Rx meds, alcohol, caffeine? Weight, and BP in normal range? Weight
loss or gain? I won't add distant possibilities, as you have enough on
your mind, for sure. I've seen panic attacks, up close and personal,
described as fear that the person feels they might be dying....nothing
wrong with going to an ER if that kind of stuff is going on. I have had
one panic attack myself, during a time stress was maxing out (very
little of my life has been stress-free, and that must be very similar to
being dead.)...it hit suddenly, and I really couldn't move. I was
crying and calling for help; fortunately, in hind sight, nobody saw me :o)
Also nothing wrong with calling doc and trying to move up appointment;
not too many offices take on urgent issues; just want to send you to the Er.
Could be many reasons from diet to bad rituals/habits.
Certain foods (fatty foods) can cause insomnia and/or restless sleep
along with inconsistent eating habits.
Irregular bedtime hours.
Smoking before bedtime.
Lack of exercise.
emitting lights such as a night light.
Raised body temperature/bed too warm.
Watching tv prior to bed.
These are some issues which could result in what you are experiencing.
I don't believe in taking meds unless it's the LAST RESORT.
If you don't exercise, try stretching muscles throughout the day and
prior to bed. It helps the body relax and avoid the restless leg
syndrome. If you don't exercise, I suggest starting, even if mild.
Studies indicate even mild exercise aids in sound sleep.
Meditation can also help release the anxiety. Learning to relax and
focus on non-stressful scenarios will eliminate the marathon running mind.
Sometimes there just isn't anything one can do to avoid a restless
night. That's when it may be time for a pill or serious shot of tequila.
But be ready for a slight hangover.
Overall, I have great success with meditation and exercising. Keeping
the body and mind in shape allows me great sleep.
I get this way from STRESS:( tends to occur in winter. Docs tell me I have seasonal effective disorder.
In the past a visit to warm sunny area like florida or the caribean helps....
sunny warm with lots of activity....
I become very non productive and just want to crawl into bed, with blanket over my head.
Wierdly I think I have always been this way, but its getting worse as I get older i am 57 this month
My gray, cloudy neighborhood used to bother me a whole lot more than
now....Now, I really look forward to whatever the changing weather
brings. Darn cold, windy, about 8" of snow on the ground and I actually
enjoy going out to shovel snow....I think part of the enjoyment is
knowing most people of my age can't do it any more. When the snow is
gone, I'll be checking the koi pond for baby bullfrogs and starting
plants for the garden.
Buy a couple of orchid plants, christmas cactus, or potted azaleas.
Learn to care for them...they bloom in winter and might brighten your
day. Always good to have something to look forward to.
As for Florida, the sun, warmth and geography are wonderful; the
freaking human inhabitants spoil it.
I just got my first orchid plant to re-bloom, the second one is on it's
way. Christmas Cactus we've had for years, they bloom all winter,
But Azaleas? Do they need a lot of light?
How often do they bloom?
I've never tried azaleas indoors, but my mom did. Mom could keep any
plant alive and flourishing. Her azaleas were small, in pots, normally
in shaded west window. In fall, they went to the cold vestibule of her
apartment building, along with the Christmas cactus, for about a month.
I think she brought them back into the apartment around first of
December....as with many other things, I wish I had written it down :o)
When I bought my first orchid, I really did not expect it to survive,
but I had sunny windows to use. Now I have six, all looking great. Ice
cubes every other day. I should have repotted them in December, but now
I'll wait until they are done blooming. Made the mistake of leaving one
in a plastic pot and almost drowned it....full of water for who knows
how long ;o(
I picked up an odd looking plant last year at the garden center, having
no idea what it was. Leaves resemble staghorn fern, but are smoothe,
shiny and lighter green. It was massively rootbound, so I put it in a
larger pot. Only in the last month, with new leaves coming up, could I
tell it is actually a fern.

I thought you were at least smart enough to know "leftys" is one of
many disparaging terms for far left Democrats. Having said that, I
apologize for giving you more credit than you deserve.
Are you going to finish your sentence, that for the first time in
quite a while, appears to have FACTS? Or did the facts make your head
feel like it was going to explode?
