I hear ya! Barely making it thru the day and then can't sleep - ugh! - it's the worst!
My PCP recommended Benedryl to help me sleep. But, I feel so groggy on that the next day, I decided to deal with the insomnia.
Post from the bear in cavesville in downtown Apsley. Interesting posts re sleep or the lack of it. Nowus bears are great foragers and out there in the woods are a number of plants which, amongst other properties, are relaxants and soporfics. One of which, closely related to the hemp lpant, is woonderful for inducing sleep. Unfortunately it is illegal but there are similar substitutes which are not and easily available by mail order from a variety of 'head shops'.
Beinga socalled sufferer of pd this bear often has restless legs syndrome, particularly at night which does indeed keep me awake and so i go foraging in the woods of the stash cave and lo and behold sleep comes. Being a natural substance it doesn't interfere withmy meds. Don't get me wrong here, I am not encouraging anybody to breaak the law but merely saying what works for me. Going to get my wrists smacked by the thread police here no doubt.
In fact there is a legitimate debate going on inthis country regarding the medicinal use of said hemprelated plant and I have my own slant on why it apears to help, not rocket science or nuclear physics, just goo ol' observations. The reason why hte wacco bacco appears to assist in many neuro/auto immune conditions s simply by inducing a relaxedbody and mind there is less tension and stress which both exacerbate said conditions - reduced stress > relaxed state of miind and body > less liklihood of anxiety based flares in our condition. Now sleeplessness, remember sleeplessness? It's a thread about sleeplessness. There can be nothing worse at night that lying there wondering when sleep will befall, and then you start counting the church bell tolling out the hours etc etc [that's when I either go foraging or logging on to the thread in the middle of the night.]
That's how bears sleep at night folks, only just some of the time, now and again, once in a while, every now and then, once every Preston Guild.
Sleep Well y'all.
