An Edmonton woman says she’s afraid of having to use her bed at night.
Kelli White says she suffers from insomnia and sleep apnea and can’t even go to sleep when she does have one in her bed.
She said the problem started last fall when her son was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes and her husband moved out.
White said she was trying to do everything she could to keep her son healthy, but the problem got worse after she started having to share her bed with her husband and children.
“It started to get really bad and I had to put my husband in a wheelchair to be able to go to the bathroom,” White said.
“When my husband’s diabetes was diagnosed I didn’t know what else to do and I just had to get help.”
She said she had a stroke and needed to stop using her wheelchair to go outside.
“I couldn’t sleep.
I couldn’t sit down.
I had no control of my body, my hands, my feet and I was constantly on the floor.”
White said it was a struggle for her to keep using her bed when her husband was not able to help her.
She also couldn’t get out of bed for long periods of time because she would just fall back asleep.
She started using the bed as a pillow to keep herself occupied and sleep.
White, who has a disability and is now on disability leave, said she has been on medication since then and is doing better.
“My life has been pretty much perfect,” she said.
But she said the problems with her bed have gotten worse since her husband took the wheelchair.
“The problem is the bed is now in my husbands house and I can’t go out and use it anymore because I’m having to move it,” she added.
White’s daughter also said she suffers sleep apnia, which is when her body becomes tired and sluggish and can sometimes cause her to fall asleep.
“She has had seizures and she’s had to go back to sleep.
That’s really upsetting,” said White’s eldest daughter, Taylor White.
Taylor White said her mother is suffering from sleep apneas and other problems that she hasn’t been able to explain.
“This is a very hard situation for her and I don’t think she understands it herself,” she told CBC News.
“They don’t understand what they’re going through.”
White’s husband said he understands and supports her decision to share the bed with his family.
“Kelli is not a good sleeper, and she doesn’t sleep on her own,” said her husband, Chris White.
“If I need to move the bed, she can move it.”
