Do you take sleep aids?
It's called a stiff drink
Not sleep aids like most people think of these.
I'm on a special, highly controlled medicine for sleep disorders.
Oh man, that sucks. I hate it when I can't sleep
Thanks so much. It's not that I don't go to sleep, it's that I can't stay in restorative sleep, due to kicking 168 times a night, without the meds.
And I have one sleep disorder that they don't know what causes it, and so there is no FDA approved drug for it. It causes what is called sleep drunkenness--you feel like you're drunk every morning and it takes you hours to get going and be able to think straight.
That is so weird. Ive had something called sleep paralysis. It don't even want to describe it. It can be really spooky when it happens. I envy people that sleep eight hours without even trying!
I know about sleep paralysis, Friends! I've read that it can be terrifying! I'm glad I don't have that! I feel for you!
People that can get restorative sleep, no matter how many hours, are very blessed. I used to be able to sleep 18 hours without "waking" up. But that was before I was diagnosed. I didn't realize I was waking up 168 times within a 5-6 hour period, due to the kicking, so that's why I was sleeping so long--my body was basically shutting down, due to lack of restorative sleep, to the point that all I was doing was sleeping. THAT'S no fun, either, when you can't do anything with family and friends, can no longer work, etc.
Melatonin if I am really off schedule.
Melatonin gives me crazy dreams lol. But it works
Yes, me too! :)
