    Day 8 – I survived my first week, and I’m pretty darn happy!! But I have a question though, I slept well last night, but woke up still exhausted, how long does this go on for?!?!

    • Awesome! My sleep improved dramatically and then fucked out again for several months, and now it’s better again. Although a friend on here suggested I have my iron levels checked and they were seriously low. I started supplements and voila! sleep improved and I didn’t feel exhausted all the time. Keep up the good work 🙂

    • I was exhausted for about 3 months, even though I was sleeping a lot. My doctor checked my iron and B vitamin levels, but they were fine. I think it had to do with PAWS (read about that if you haven’t already.) It went away and hasn’t come back.

    • I was always tired, dead tired, for quit a bit of time, maybe three months, but if your body needs to sleep, it needs to sleep. The first few hours, days, weeks, months are all about healing and being excited about healing. i googled paws a lot.

    • Sleep weirdity lasted for about 4 months for me. Since then – yuuuuuummmmmm sleeps 😁😁😁😁😁. Keep going it gets better!
