My tics can make it hard for me to settle down and get to sleep but usually I wake up only a couple of times during the night. Every now and again though, I’ll wake up many, many times and that’s what happened last night. I’m not sure if it’s the ticcing that wakes me, or if I tic just as I wake. Either way, being wrenched from sleep, time after time, squealing, shouting or jerking, is quite a shock and very frustrating. Last night, by the time I’d woken for the twentieth time, I felt pretty desperate.
At least it’s a Bank Holiday this weekend, which should give me plenty of time to catch up on my sleep.
