I have insomnia. I was taking meds for it but I heard some things that scared me off of them. I hate to rely on drugs but some nights I just cannot take it any longer. I have Xanax for anxiety that I take if I feel an anxiety attack coming on but lately I've been relying on them to relax me to sleep. I also take melatonin sometimes. I've been meaning to get my butt down to GNC, I hear glycine sticks are good for sleep but couldn't find it at Wal-Mart. I haven't tried CVS or Walgreens. I must check this out this week.
This sounds odd, but I like quiet. But lately, I have only been able to fall asleep with the TV on quietly in the background. I also wear earplugs, I know, weird because of the TV. I still hear my alarm clock go off but not much else. It has to be dark. I just use the TV til I fall asleep then it gets turned off if I wake up.
I'm having issues now
Fell asleep around 4, woke up at 5 feeling like I had been out for hours. Laid back down and finally passed out again only to wake up to a nightmare that almost had me in tears and now I'm just a little shaken up and can't get comfortable. Gotta love nightmares!
