    Sleep Well

    Its a few days now, I have been going to bed early.  It feels good especially for a person who had / has insomnia.  Every night, I go to bed with my husband.  I missed being next to him at night.  I will try to stick to my routine, even if sometimes, it is hard being in bed...

    I've stayed up all night,

    Haven't Been

    Yup, haven't been sleeping well last couple of weeks. Been waking up 1-3 times every night it's not funny :( I always think when you wake up in the middle, it kinda reset your sleeping time and that means did not get the full rest.
