Insomniac

Help! I'm SO TIRED!

I just can't sleep lately. I don't know what it is, I normally don't have a problem sleeping at all. I may have the occasional night or two where I'm not resting as good as usual but not like this. I feel like I haven't had a full night of sleep in forever! If this is what it's like to be a mom then I'm out!

Maybe it's our new mattress. But it's a great mattress, not like my old hard one. Maybe I need new pillows. I dunno...

Last night I was absolutely miserable. My unrest has brought me to the point where I'm getting extremely irritated about everything. Jamie was asking me what to add to our grocery list and I simply COULDN'T THINK. It was driving me insane. And just the thought of going to bed and not being able to sleep is making me so frustrated that I'm breaking into tears.

We're going camping this weekend...maybe a couple of nights in the great outdoors will be good for me.

Otherwise, any suggestions? I know you've all been there.

When I was a kid I used to have a cup of warm milk. Now I just have a big glass of cold water, apparently its supposed to cool you down and your body temperature drops when you sleep. And you're not supposed to shower to close to bedtime either for the same reason, don't know if you do that or not...worth a try maybe?!?!

What I have to do every night before bedtime is read. I get in bed turn on a night light and pull out a good book. I find that it helps me forget all the worries of the day and helps my mind wind down. Even when I'm super tired I still read 1 page. Worth a try too maybe??????
