I need help, since I have gone off the Nsaids ,almost five weeks now ,I have been suffering from Insomnia the last few weeks. I know everybody has a night now and then when they just can't turn their mind off and drift away. But this is different, it isn't because of my mind, I am not worried about anything, I am not replaying the days' events, I am not eating too late and Lord knows I am not exercising or anything like that. When I first lay down I am not in pain, that only comes later after I toss and turn for 4 or 5 hours and my meds wear out.
I think it is starting to effect J and Iz too. As soon as we finish breakfast Iz goes down for a long, long nap. And J goes around saying " gosh, why am I so tired all the time" ( because I got in and out of bed about 30 times last night and you woke up every time).
I remember when I first started going through menopause ( and wasn't that a trip) I had insomnia for awhile, it went away when I started taking HRT. And then again when my Mama was so ill and reaching the end of her life, we were on twenty hour call and I could never fall asleep because I was afraid I wouldn't hear the phone ( like that would ever happen). But I can think of no reason for it to be happening now and none of my tried and true remedy's are working.
I think I have read three books this week alone. Last night, or rather this morning I finally feel asleep around 4 am. And the strangest thing is I can' take a nap in the day time either. I was getting in the habit of taking a nap for about an hour every day and now, no nap either. What the heck is going on. Today I am going to dig out my sound machine, that is something that worked when I was going through menopause. If the ocean wave sounds don't do it tonight you don't want to be around me tomorrow.
