Like the book on tape, you can either write your own story or find one on the web or download it and copy it into word. Then you can use the the Word speech tools Text to Speech (or deskbot--a free tool) to read to you. The readers have such a monotonous voice it is sure to send you off to sleep in no time. It saves a trip to library, if you can't make it there. Some books like the Scarlet Letter and others are online and have free versions. Another source is a free email fiction magazine called Everyday Fiction--they send you one story a day by email.
Emmi, are your legs bothering you when you try to sleep? Are you having trouble getting comfortable? I take klonopin for restless leg which seems to be very common with endo and other disorders. I also think sometimes our failing endo glands suddenly decide to work temporarily, then they wont. So you get bouts of insomnia. Benedryl knocks me out and some people take nyquil if they can. I can't take it.
My pain meds keep me awake sometimes too. Maybe one of your meds has caffiene in it and is keeping you awake. Aspirin has caffiene in it and some other drugs do too.
Well, I hope you feel better and you get some sleep.
