No Sleep….

SleepDisordersCatchZZS_000I have not slept in four days.   Seriously, maybe three hours and I am unsure why.

You know when you can’t sleep and all you start thinking about is how you need to fall asleep.

So I posted my dilemma to some friends and I got various ideas.

-acupuncture.  Never tried, but willing if I had a good referral

-hot tub, trying that out, so I will let you know if that works

-valerian root tea, it seems I tried that long ago but don’t remember if it worked.

-triptofan.  I guess they sell this in supplements, so full thanksgiving dinner not necessary.

I have tried no caffeine after noon, no computer after 7 (tonight is an exception) melatonin.

Things that maybe causing me to stay awake… Was alone for a few nights and that made me on edge. It doesn’t help that Charlie barks at any unusual shapes or shadows.  That deep scary bark (teddy didn’t have that) I start school next week and I am honestly nervous.   Work has been more stressful than usual and then a serious item has been on my mind for a few weeks and I need to resolve it.  Put it to REST!!

So as I stare up at the stars, sitting in the hot tub, writing this post I am chanting “you are getting sleepy…. “

    I shifted to having coffee before 7 for a while. That helped, but then I ended up having eliminated it completely … better still!

    Try melatonin – available at most druggists

    Mrs and I both suffer insomnia at times. She worse than I.

    Good luck
