If I understand you correctly you want to know what you can do to help you sleep better?

Because I can't take other sleep aids due to all of my problems and natural sleep aids (namely melentonin) is bad for lupus I have to find alternatives.
I read myself to sleep.
I listen to classic books on my ipod.
I listen to soft music or ocean waves.
I use relaxation videos that hyponotize me to sleep.
Lupus, Fibromyalgia, Glaucoma, Asthma, Hypothyriodism, Sleep Apnea, OA, Depression, and Allergies

When life throws you lemons....
Pick them up and throw them right back at them! :))
