What does one do when they are in a situation that seems to have no concrete action that can be taken to alleviate it?

It’s been over a year now, and the lack of adequate sleep is really catching up to me. It has been a year of scheduled appointments, cancellation of said appointments, missed re-scheduling of them and then delays and changes and more delays, then tests and another one, and then some surgery and on and on an on it goes. I’m at my wits’ end but nowhere to turn or to rush things along. One does not rush the medical institution… maybe institution is where I’ll end up if I don’t get some respite soon! It affects so many areas of my life: physical, emotional and even spiritual.
The body is a resilient piece of machinery really as it goes on and on like the energizer bunny, functioning and doing most of what is expected of it, regardless of the energy level. This little bunny though I think has batteries that are waning slowly.
My days if I don’t have to go out are spent doing miscellaneous household or other things, although many or most of the household ones are done by my better half…. yes he is definitely the better half in this relationship right now. There are the off and on short naps that happen as I sit and watch some television or do some blogging Quite often they are not planned as I can’t plan to sleep…it just happens and I find myself awakened suddenly and ten or fifteen minutes has passed.
Just so as to not be mysterious, there is no serious medical issue only one that has yet to be diagnosed with some kind of medication to help or perhaps a procedure done to alleviate the condition. I’ll try to simplify it so as not to get bogged down in details. I have a condition that keeps me from sleeping laying down, or I start to gag and therefore I sleep in the recliner.. (again). I do sleep for about 2-3 hours at a time some nights, others not so much. Total usually 4 hours maybe 4 1/2.
I’ve had most tests… one more the end of June, and had some results only because I got copies from my family doctor. But I don’t have the specialist’s appointment until the end of May, when it would be nice if I then got some sort of answer and medication to help.
So, I have really asked a non-rhetorical question as there is no answer. Suffice it to say my concentration, coping and cognitive skills right now are diminished, and I am reading blogs slowly when I can and writing less than that.
I may not show up as often in your comments area with my usual witty reply or stunning (unasked for) advice, but just wait until my brain recovers (I know you will)…. and all will be right with the world once again!
