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.

    I will share with you what I've told my sister for a long time. For her she's a constant thinker. She's still active even when she's trying to go to sleep. Especially if her kids are out and about (young adults). I found the best and no cost sleeping pill that works 100% of the time. As a Christian I find that sincere prayer, bible reading and just asking God to bring that sweet sleep works everytime. I've had times when I'm still awake at 3 in the morning having to get up at 6 and I've done the 3 things I mentioned above and when I lay down I'm out and I awake fully refreshed like I had a full nights sleep. God is awesome even in something this minor. The process clears your heart and head of all worries, doubts and fears.

    My sister finally tried and she's a Christian as well. OMG she actually had a good nights rest. So she has become a true believer in this method I shared. Hope you give it a try and get rid of your insomnia
