Giving In (sort of)

I bought some "sleep aids" today. I've been having a horrible time sleeping lately. Weird dreams. Sometimes difficult dreams. Definitely a lot of dreaming. I also wake up a lot. Last night I was up 4 different times and since I couldn't fall asleep until after 11 and just gave up trying to sleep at 5:05 that's a lot of awake time. Now, in truth, I've always had a hard time sleeping. I can almost never sleep late. My sister commented when I was in FL over the holiday break that she's heard me say I don't sleep but she didn't think I was serious. The problem is, though, since I can literally fall asleep on my sofa for 30 - 45 minutes in a matter of seconds, clearly I'm sleep deprived.

As a person who supports drugs as much as I do, it is kind of weird that I've been so hesitant about sleeping pills. I think I'm afraid that I'll have a hard time waking up in the AM and spend the day kind of foggy. I don't have time for that crap. :) +

eh, i know what you mean. i tried a lot of different things...eventually. lately the best thing i've tried has been melatonin. i was really hesitant, but it's worked well and i don't feel groggy in the morning.

i wish i could be all tough about it and say stuff like SLEEP IS OVER RATED! or SLEEP IS FOR THE WEAK! really like sleeping. i just don't do it well.
