I can, and do, sleep very well when I get the opportunity.
However DH does not sleep well at all. We have gotten into a routine of going off to bed around 11.30 and he watches tv until 12.30 when he wakes me up.
As he cannot safely get out of bed into his wheelchair I need to be awake to help him move out of and back into bed. Then I go and get him his next dose of medication which , usually, helps him to sleep for a few hours.
Repeat this again at around 5am, but no meds at this time, and then we get up at 7am.
Just changed to twin adjustable beds so that he can sit up without me having to lift him and arrange a nest of pillows for him.
He has water to drink. And tries to watch tv quietly. Not a reader so having a book is not an option.
He doesn't sleep in the daytime. And it is pain that keeps him awake.
We have tried going to bed earlier, but this just gives him longer to sit awake whilst I sleep.
Also tried to stay up until his meds at 12. 30 am. But I just find it uncomfortable to sleep in my chair. And I need to stay up to assist him transferring to the wheelchair if needed.
Not looking for answers but just sometimes would love to sleep through and have a lie in on a Sunday morning !
