My Mother's Day

I'm sorry to not have personally posted since early last week. It was another busy weekend at work. I was on my feet most of my 12 hour shifts. I was exhausted by the end of my 3 day stretch. On top of that, I'm not sleeping well as my insomnia has decided to rear its ugly head. Suffice it to say I was cranky. However, all that faded away when I was greeted with these:

Aw, gee...thanks kids! I'm proud to be your mother!

Beautiful flowers from the kids!

I suffered from insomnia frequently when I was a teenager, so I know how you feel. After trying everything else and finding nothing helped, I created a sort of "self-hypnosis" that works quickly for me. I still use it when I have trouble sleeping. Has anything like that worked for you?

I've done the self hypnosis, repetative prayers such as the Rosary or Divine Mercy, the melatonin, the benedryl, chamomile tea, lavendar, warm baths, warm milk, etc... I am now on prescription medication that has helped until recently. My problem is not falling asleep but staying asleep. If I am awakened in the middle of the night I cannot fall back asleep. Woe to anyone who wakes me up!

Beautiful flowers!!!

I, too, suffer from insomnia...I have since I was 12. My problem is definitely falling asleep...that's the reason I blog at midnight!!! I dunno...I don't like taking prescriptions for it...but, the way things have been lately, I may have to go back to it!!! Good luck to you in your sleep quest!!!
