But sleep won't come!


Here I sit at ten til 5 in the morning. I am home from the paper route. The papers were late this morning they are normally there at midnight but didn't get there till 2:30.

Anyways, I am normally home on Sundays around 3am. Then I come home let my pets out then when they come back in I normally head to bed. So why can't I this morning? I came home. I let the pets out. I sat here about to fall asleep in my chair. I let the pets back inside. Then I tried to lay down and wouldn't you know it ....WIDE AWAKE! I just can't seem to sleep lately.

I have been struggling for over a week now with needing sleep and not being able to. So instead I have been working on my new house. Making myself completely drop dead can't form sentences tired seems to be the only way I can sleep. Even then I only sleep a couple hours and am wide awake again. I am going to try some new herbal stuff to try to sleep. Hopefully it helps better than counting naked men jumping over a bed or the warm milk trick...btw whomever decided warm milk was good...yuck. And I hope there's no more staring at the walls.

Well, starting to feel sleepy again so gonna try laying down again. it's now almost 5am and I have to be awake in 4 and a half hours.....ugggggggggg.

While I'm not THAT bad... I don't think I've slept right since she left. Even the teddy bear doesn't help that much... but it makes me feel a little less alone.

fuzzy...i've had the same problem for years now. Sometimes it gets so bad i go for days with out any sleep. i've been told to go to the sleep institute here. But, i don't have over a thosuand dollars for treatment.

So..one thing that sometimes happens with me..is sleeping in a different place. If i find myself getting sleepy in the recliner..i get a pillow and sleep right there. It "tricks" my body and sometimes i can get as much as 4 or 5 hours of sleep that way.

Exactly Buttery! I tend to curl up right here in the recliner. Or sometimes I try to go sleep in my regular bed instead of the hospital bed I normally sleep in. I have even tried sleeping on the floor or the couch. Whatever will give me a little rest it seems.

Are you like me also Buttery, in the reguards that 4 to 5 hours sleep makes me feel completely rested but any more than that makes me feel completely exhausted yet again!?
