Sunday night insomnia
Posted 15 December 2008 - 01:08 PM
This is new to be within the last few months, but last night was the worst. I went up to bed at like 10 and watched a little TV (like 30 mins), then turned out the light. Tossed and turned and laid there WIDE awake until I picked up a book. Reading usually helps me fall asleep. Well, I read my book on 3 different attempts to fall asleep! Every time I put it down or turned the lights out, I was back to being wide awake. I finally fell asleep at 3 something (I looked at the clock, but since I am blind w/o my glasses/contacts, I only remember it starting witha 3) and Matt came up at 3 something and woke me up. I wanted to kill him! Even though it wasn't his fault. Then I laid there and tossed and turned until my alram went off at 6:15. I dosed sure, but did not get any SLEEP.
Surprisingly I don't feel too bad today, just a little foggy or something, but it's ridic! Why can't I sleep on Sunday nights? ? ?

Also, if you don't want to try the medicine route, you can get a bottle of Melatonin, its what your body actually produces to help you sleep. As you get older your body doesn't produce as much. I would go with a small mg as possible, and try it on a night you don't have to work.
I personally have insomnia and take a sedative every night.
Hope that helps!!

Cattie - that's interesting about the melatonin, I'll check that out.

My mother has been telling me to take Tylenol PM or Advil PM but I've been trying to avoid that cuz I don't want to get dependent on them if they work. But since it's not getting any better I think I'm gonna try to take 1 Advil PM tonight & see how that works.
Carly, I'm just wondering what time did you take it last night? Maybe it wasn't early enough to keep you from being groggy this morning?
