Oh no another day & haven't slept all night. What helps to get sleepy? Nothing seems to work. Tried Ambien (too adicting). Then tried Lunesta- but it only worked for a short time. there must be something i can do. I am exhausted all the time- but still can't sleep. Lindy

Thursday a.m.
Good morning:
While I have no problem falling asleep these  days, in the past, when I did, I would take Tylonol p.m.
Very non-pharmacetical, worked for me....Great luck.
Maybe a beer, before sleep time?

Hey Lindy

I'm sorry for what u'r going thru. I know how hard this is on u and how this is taking it's toll on u'r body. If u'r not sleeping, at least be resting. I know u'r tired and have no strength, so just stop and lay down as much as u'r able to do. That resting will give back to u'r body and help some.

I know this may seem lightweight, but it may help. My mother in law had years and years of non sleep and finally her doc told her to use over the counter sleep aid that u'r body naturally has anyway. Yes, it's a supplement. It worked! U'r situation is diff of course and may require prescription meds. BEFORE trying this med please do discuss it with u'r doc. Even supplements need to be talked over with u'r doc when u have a chronic disease and are also taking other prescription meds. Best wishes friend. I know u'r feeling at u'r wits end on this. Sleep deprivation puts u at a new low, but hang in there. It will get better.
