Re: 4 hours a night sleep

Hi Irirose

thansk for writing me. As I was reading, your comments regarding cortisol struck home. i mean, i am feeling all these weird sensations in my body and i feel that it is the excess cortisol you refer to is making me feel that way.

i tried something new on sat night and it worked!

you see, i never had falling asleep at the beginning of the sleep, but would wake up after a few hours and can't go back. so on sat night, when i woke up after a few hours, i took melatonin and i was able to fall asleep back.

i think i ended up sleepng 7 hrs. the most amount in 4 months since i quit drinking. your idea about taking sleeping aids every other night is an excellent idea!

i will go without melatonin tonight, but won't stress out because i know i will be taking it tomorrow night and get a decent night's sleep.

thanks!
