Re: Does anyone else sleep to turn your mind off?
I usually try to lie down and sleep for an hour or so in the early evening. By then, I'm usually frazzled and just feeling terribly down, and feel as If I cannot take any more. I take a Xanax and lie down tihe my cats all around me on my bed and drift off for an nour or so (sometimes, I've exhausted myself without knowing it, and then I can sleep for 3 or 4 hours. Then I get up, the night is quiet, the traffic has gone down, and I can be more peaceful.
Often, I wish I could just sleep for an entire day, if things are very difficult. Of course, I can't, but oh, it would be nice. On the other hand, things are just still there when we wake up.
I haven't found anything that turns my mind off as well as sleeping.
