Yeah the parasite bit is a joke. We all refer to her as the zombie parasite. I dont have an issue withcosleeping but I am a very light sleeper and wake a lot. I am not angry at wife or child or resent them at all. I wake up my mind racing in a million directions as if somebody else has the remote and is channel surfing my mind... This makes me crazy and I get angry, not at anything just angry.
DW has moved the baby to her other side and we have a co sleeper which the rugrat is learning to use more and is starting to sleep more of the night. We dont have room for sleeping elsewhere frankly so that's not really an option.
The getting up to pee is a problem I cant figure out though and once woken up the channel surfing starts. I am not low carb, lowish is more like it, I dont eat starchy foods every day but I dont not eat them either. I also eat a lot of veggies so I figure I have enough. I dont measure or count, just an overview eyeball guesstimate.
I recognize that at this time of sleep debt and stress I wont be loosing much weight and I am not really worrying about it so my carbs are somewhat higher than normal. I figured the slightly higher carbs would offset some of the stress of everything. Too much carbs sadly gives me the high pressure gas powered swooshs so I cant go too high.
The issue with peeing is that I have to pee a lot as in volume every time. Not like a uti where you need to pee all the time but no volume. i dont drink more than I need but where does all this come from?
