Another long night

January 5, 2016

A a note to self, last night was another long, difficult night. I wasn’t feeling well, and went to bed at around 9:30pm, but just laid there uncomfortably, shaking a little and perspiring a lot, for several hours. I fell asleep for a little while, then kept waking up between 2 and 3am, then finally fell asleep for a while after that.

If what I’m going through is related to my diet and CKD, I don’t know what I did wrong last night. I had a fair amount of garlic with some pasta last night, and all I can think is that that didn’t sit well. I also had some sun-dried tomatoes with the meal, and regular tomatoes have potassium, but the label on the jar did not list potassium.

As I’ve mentioned before, a long time ago I went to the ER when things got this bad, but I no longer fight it. I usually just end up resting in the ER while they do the tests, and even on the times that they’ve kept me in the hospital for a few days all they do is fill me up with fluids and keep testing me for different things, so at this point I figure I can just rest at home.
