...something that comes so easily for some folks, has never been a strong point for me.
In my younger days I would spend hours tossing and turning just trying to GET to sleep at night. I tried everything....no naps during day (DARN), no caffeine after lunch, no exercise after dinner, warm milk, warm milk with honey, melatonin, and every other idea that was thrown at me.
The last 15 years have brought different issues. I can GET to sleep just fine, it is the staying asleep part that I can't do. I will wake up at 1 or 2 or 3, if I am really lucky, and never go back to sleep. THAT is annoying. Again, I have tried EVERYTHING....all of the above plus.....no TV in the bedroom, a book by the bed in case I do wake up, meditation, prayer, and a bazillion other home remedies that have been tossed my way. And yes, I have even tried Tylenol PM and Ambien. REALLY???? NONE OF THEM WORK.....
Now on to a cure I have found recently.....I sure do sleep better here in the country. Is it depression maybe???? just the quiet??? I have no idea but considering I am sleeping on an ancient mattress in my four poster bed from like 50 years ago, maybe it is just the comfort of childhood. :o)
Whatever it is, I am savoring every moment of the deep sleep I have experienced this week. Now maybe I can take some of that home to Ohio with me and continue on this string of good night's sleep.
Until next time.... Be Blessed!
