The last week or so I've had a lot of trouble sleeping. I'm plenty tired, my body is exhausted from all the working that I've been doing (my hands ache also a side effect of this gig) and I'm yawning yet, still I lay down to sleep and nada. Awake.... So I take a sleep aid. Still that takes about an hour. I know what is causing my sleeplessness. My damn mind doesn't know when to shut off. It's a huge aggravation actually. I wish it'd just get on board with the plan (plan=sleepy time)!! Any tricks or tips to offer? I'm open to just about anything. Just for the record, work nights 9-2ish (give or take) which has me up moving about quite a bit, so I'm active (and in theory wearing my body out). I have been reading before bed also, you know to relax and calm my mind. Nada.
Ok, so gimme what you got peeps! I need assistance with the sleeping.
I'm wondering if there is a hormonal tie between mid/late twenties and sleeplessness. My sister has been having the damnedest time sleeping through the night or getting more than 3 straight hours of sleep for about 2 years. Well, I know a portion of that is to blame on her babies. But in fairness even when the kids sleep through the night- she often doesn't.
PS: A good friend was admitted to the hospital tonight. She is only 25 weeks pregnant! That's all I can say for now but Prayers and good juju are needed!!
