I rarely ever get to bed at a decent time. I normally sleep an average of 3 hours a night. And even then I never get to really sleep deep enough to rest properly. I'm up every 30 minutes checking the time because I'm paranoid that I won't be up on time to get to work. The times I do finally get sleepy I can't go to bed because my kids are up and they're at that age where they just don't nap some days.

The days they do nap...I don't get sleepy when they're sleeping. I have slept a good 7 intermittent hours more times a week than usual but the damage has been done. I'm always tired. My body aches from the exhaustion. I can't focus. I'm moody, overly emotional...and the dark circles OY!

I don't want to take pills. They don't work. I don't stay asleep and I feel fuzzy for 2 days after >>sigh<< I'm never gonna get rid of this tired feeling Am I?

What kind of pills have you tried? Ambien-CR is normally pretty darn effective.

If you're not into drugs, you might also look at Valerian Tea (sp?) It's a natural sedative that can be fairly effective.

Pebcac...Ambien is a funny lil joke in pill form that was like taking a sugarpill for me...but thanks for the suggestion!

My insomnia is such a horrid thing that I've even been put on a sleeping pill and anti-psychotic cocktail....STILL couldn't get to sleep! The few times I did get to sleep on that combo I didn't sleep thru the night and as I mentioned in the post I'd feel fuzzy for two days.

The only thing that actually DOES work is a low dose of Xanax but my doctors refuse to prescribe it to me. Some shit about it being habit forming...NOT TRUE! I do not have an addictive personality. But what the hell do THEY know. This is the reason peeps go to Canada to get pills!

Ladies...I KNOW I KNOW but I can't help it

I don't get much sleep during the week, when I do sleep I'm up every cpl hrs. I do get all the sleep I need on the weekends. Could it be your bed? I know that's my problem.

Coming from a hotel's night auditor, I know the feeling... and all too well. If you can at all overcome, then I would really suggest that you do, because that lifestyle of irregular sleep can really stick with you for years, as is my case, for I barely work the night audit any more, but still have a funky schedule for sleep and such. It really can turn your whole life upside down.

Nor do I mess with pills. Usually a shot of Sauza reposado does me right for relaxation.

Cutey, as for the bags and/or dark circles under your eyes, L'Oréal makes a great undereye treatment cream which can clear them right up. It costs nearly $20 for a jar containing only 15 mL, but it is very effective, producing results within minutes. It has something to do with lipid replacement.

Yes, yes... I am unabashedly revealing my "metrosexuality" here.
