I too like a cooler room. It seems to cause the hybernation mode that helps me sleep.
I did go through several months with a lot of pain and insomnia. When I would finally fall asleep, the pain awoke me. My doc prescribed amitriptylene (a low dose of a tricyclic anti-d) which I take in addition to lexapro. I take it at night and it is supposed to reset your sleep clock. Well it has worked great for me. The big bonus is that we heal in our deep sleep so (especially for a chronically ill person) a nice long sleep every night is terribly important.
When I go to sleep praying (trying to name each person here that I have met . . .and my children and church friends etc. ), I usually fall asleep before I finsih. I'm not proud of that . . . but prayer does that to me.
This should be an interesting string.
