A behavior I had always been chalking up to cold chills, due to cold weather and a cantankerous heating unit spitting out cool air during the winter.
Since been replaced, my pocketbook is still screaming.
Hubby will begin shaking like he has a cold chill. He can't control the shaking and asks for a blanket.
I cover him and then lay down next to him and envelope him in my arms until he relaxes.
This may take a few mins to several to get him settled.
I'll release my grip a little and stay with him until his breathing is rhythmic and I feel confident enough to slide out of the bed and leave him.
Some times, if I linger very long I nod off to sleep.
Sleeping on the job.
This behavior has happened before and as I said chalked up to cold weather but now, even in warmer weather, it seems more frequent; especially in the last 3 days or so.
Today he has experienced this 3 times already.
No fever, nothing out of the ordinary for us so illness does not appear to be the factor.
It's distressing to Hubby when it happens.
He cant control his body movements and is unable to respond to me when it happens.
It's distressing to me also because I feel clueless as to how to take care of it more than I am, and my way feels like it's not enough.
Although, I have got a catnap or two.
