I dream of sleep
For a many years I have been unable to move in bed. I can’t turn over or move, I can’t turn my head or shift my weight. I can’t speak clearly as I have a mask over my face attached to my ventilator. I get open sores on my face sometimes, lots of pain and sleepless nights.
I’ve been applying to the NHS for a year now to have a specialised profiling/hospital bed. I have finally got to the point of them giving me a home trial… possibly.
My drawing tonight is a celebration of over a year struggling with sleep and hope of comfier nights.
