Just Deal With It
Wednesday, September 30, 2009
I have never been a great sleeper. I have spent years envying people who seem to fall asleep at the "drop of a hat". My first real bout of insomnia started 14 years ago with my last pregnancy and has continued on and off since then. As I write this blog, I have now been up for the past 23 hours(and counting), which really sucks because Wednesdays are my long work days and I wont get home till 9pm or so. I have tried different things both over the counter and prescribed. These don't seem to work all that well for me. I hate the "hang-over" affect that some have, while others don't seem to take me down deep enough to feel rested or keep me asleep throughout the night. Many nights are filled with tossing and turning with very vivid and active dreaming (leading to a.m. exhaustion). Over the years I've learned to just deal with it. Hopefully tonight will be a better night.
