Sleeping............or the lack thereof..........

So I went to the doctor this morning - my yearly - and told him I just can't sleep. Never have been able to. So he decided to put me on an anti-anxiety instead of a sleeping pill. No, I'm not depressed or even anxious. He just feels that they work a bit better than a sleeping pill. His experience in his practice is that sleeping pills like Ambien, Lunesta, tend to quit working on women after a short amount of time being on them. So as I have had this very experience with sleeping pills, I decided to go the route of the anti-anxiety pills and try them for two weeks. This is my first night on them. It's 2:24am and I'm on the computer.............

my poor mother - love the random comments at 2:30 in the morning though. what are you going to do? maybe your body needs more time to adjust...

My mom is the same....she never sleeps. Maybe it is just something that happens as you grow up!

Poor mommio :( You can take care of our kids for a few days - that will tire you out. Try googling sleep deprivation, I'm sure you'll come up with some new ideas to try. Not sure what to tell you.

So sad! Maybe it's because there are too darn many stars to look at out your windows :) Hope it gets better!

glad to see you're back to being a regular blogger again. of course I'm sure it would be nicer to be sleeping in the middle of the night rather than blogging...but we'll take you no matter what time of night/day it is!

I don't sleep well either. I bet I was up at the same time you were. :) May have been in bed, but not asleep. Maybe we could do some late night bonding! Haha. That really stinks, though. I'm sorry.

Call me Nikk or get on the pooter and we'll do some bonding! I'm in!

I can't believe that Ambien quit working for you. My body never developed a tolerance for that!

I'm in the non-sleeping world now as well though. Pregnancy = severe congestion = miserable = no sleepies. Go us!
