    Too Much to Do....

    Tomorrow is my family's reunion and Chris and I have a five to six hour drive.  With laundry to do, stuff to pack for the weekend, and trying to cram a shower in the schedule, it is 11:36pm and I still haven't gotten enough done to sleep.  We leave tomorrow at 11:30am...

    Is it because I fall asleep

    while still pining away in my heart for you that every black night without fail I see you pointlessly in my dreams?

    When Nothing Natural Helps

    I have a terrible time at night.  I am so hypervigilant that even when my dogs snore I wake up.  If they lick their paws I wake up.  If my cat breathes near me I wake up.  When I was married I often slept in the guest bedroom as I couldn't...

    Ive always been a night owl.

    I think it is because I like the privacy I get out of it. Time to think and do whatever I guess. I had to leave the room where my boyfriend is sleeping because it is so tempting to touch and hold him and I know he needs his sleep for work. Boy do I love him :)

    Side Effect Of Spinal Meningitis

    25 years ago I had spinal meningitis. I lost the chemical reaction in my brain that lulls you to sleep. The neurologist put me on amitriptylin and it worked until about 2 years ago. Now I'm having a bad reaction to it. Dr.'s have tried everything. I dread a new Dr. "playing with...
