Things that make you go aaarrrrgggghhhhh!

I love my house, its my sanctuary, my safe haven away from the world and that’s never been more so than in the last few months.

I love my bed too, its where I can feel comfortable, relaxed and can switch off. Or at least that’s what I thought.

This morning, I woke to a throbbing hand and pins and needles. Why? Because my head had fallen on to it and was cutting off the blood supply!

Panicking, I flexed my fingers rapidly and elevated my arm, stroking the skin away from my hand and towards my armpit. Luckily, it seems fine.

The worrying thing is, is that there seems to be nowhere which is truly safe, away from hazards or mishaps. I have to be mindful about everything and that is exhausting. If I cant relax when I’m asleep when can I!?

I cant think of any tip right now I can give myself with this one. Suggestions welcome!

Note: 2 weeks on, I’m still experiencing mild pins and needles occasionally. It did however take 3 days for the initial bout to subside. Scary stuff but I think everything is ok.

  1. Hi Miranda,
    Yes I have had the same experience and it,s really uncomfortable until the circulation gets going. When I had chemo I used soft down pillows which were so comfortable but I have since gone back to my hard neck pillow which seem to keep my head in the correct position, they do take a bit to get used to. Mine is from John Lewis but I think Marks and Spencer make similar.
    Hope that is of some help.(really enjoy your website)
    Fran.
