Insomnia, anyone?
12
Sun, 10-26-2008 - 11:42pm
So I've recently had some bad bouts of insomnia...I'll be up all night, or when I finally get to sleep I'm tossing and turning. Then I am absolutley exhausted in the morning and I have to drag myself out of bed, but then I'm usually late anyway. This morning I had nothing to do but schoolwork, so it was nothing short of a miracle that I removed myself from the bed. It's annoying now, because I was tired a little bit ago but now I am wide awake. *sigh*

Kristy,


Sleep is one of my biggest stuggles along with eating right.

I live in the land of insomnia. I can never get to sleep at a decent time and when I do I'm up again a million times. Sometimes sleeping pills will help and sometimes I could literaly take the whole bottle and still stay up for days. I wish you luck :)

O Kristy! I know how much that sucks! Is it just from the stress or is it something you're taking? to sleep naturally, sometimes taking valerian root can help and exercise always helped me!

I honestly think it's all from stress. Ugh. But you just reminded me to go take my EPO, b6, and prenatal. I seriously need to get one of those old-people pill keepers with the days on them.

Kristy,


Me too. It turned out I had an infection because I had very bad hot flashes at night. After a week of Cipro the hot flashes are gone but I am still very hot at night. On top of anxiety, of course. So I can relate. I would speak to your doctor just in case it's more than anxiety. Also, my RE said it's fine to take Tylenol Simply Sleep. Yes it's a drug and drugs are bad, but in the short run it works and you will be rested.


Can I also say that I really related to your anger on chat last Friday. I felt like it could have come from me. So if you want to talk with me, I feel like I really understand what you are going through and I'm thinking of you and hoping it gets easier.


Prayers and baby dust to you - C

Hey Caren,


Thank you for understanding. I am just so full of anger and hurt and frustration I want to explode. I can get through the whole day and once I settle for the night, I just sit and cry. I can handle seeing onesies and pregnant women in stores, and I can handle talking about "when I'm PG" with my mom, but it's at the end of the day, when it's just me all alone in the house (DH has classes till 11pm) I just sit and cry. I hate myself because I know it's "my fault", what I'm going through. My heart just breaks at night.

Oh, Kristy, sweet Kristy - It is NOT YOUR FAULT!!!!!!! You didn't chose this! As a funeral director I am sure you hear of people dying from awful diseases - would you ever say it is their fault they got this or that disease? Of course not. Be kind to yourself. I know how hard it is. Believe me, I am full of anger too at times. Would you like to learn the Emotional Freedom Technique? I can e-mail you the link if you want, just let me know. It helps with the bad feelings a lot. Hang in there, thinking of you and sending you good thoughts.
