I'm so tired of this insomnia.
I've tried to turn off all lights, sounds, and use just a small low beam headlamp to read myself to sleep. I still read for hours!
I've turned on the tv to the dullest show I could find...nothing!
I try to wear myself out for the day...nothing!
I'll yawn, but can't sleep.
My doctor won't give me a sleep aid. She says take melentona.
I'd love to but I know it will send me into a flare.
I've done 2 benadryl on desperate nights, but I don't like waking up with a hangover that lasts all of the next day. It still takes an hour for it to knock me out.
Anybody got a sledge hammer?

Pick them up and throw them right back at them! :))
