Good morning Tina!
Do I have to send the "Wicked Witch" of the North down there and plant some Poppy's!"
I sympathize with you here on this! While I do not suffer to the extent you do, I do go through bouts of it, and it can sure wear on a person, and seems worse when you are suffering pain.
It is no surprise to anyone that you have a lot on your plate, and I'm sure stress has a lot to do with it, and then to have severe pain,...well, I just don't see how super mom does it.
Have you looked into a possibility of using Benadryl on occasion to see if it will help. When I had my MRI and trouble staying put in the tube, they gave me 50mg of it. Whithin 5min or so, I was sleeply, and actually think I fell asleep just long enough to give out a big ole long snoring snort! LOL
.......a person would think that eventually sleep would kick in after a while of suffering this way...but you are right, a person may tend to do some odd things before that happens.
It will be nice when the girls are sleeping all night long! ...and I know they are not quite there yet!
I hope you find a solution soon, and I worry that the current adjustments on your med's may be part of the problem.
Let us know...if you find that magic pill for sleep!
