Thanks for taking the time to reply to my post, sleeplessinky! I could feel your pain too. Tomorrow is my sleep lab and I am pretty terrified because all I can do is just close my eyes and lie there.Sleep does not happen. They will be testing me for sleep apnea too but there is no way I have that as it is mostly aimed at snorers. Since I can't sleep, it can't be SLEEP apnea.
Ambien worked for about 6 months total for me. Then in March, suddenly it quit.I then got a Lunesta rx and that never worked. I were you I would take Ambien,to start every other day since you didn't want to take it daily. You will
likelyhave less next day sx (side effects). I like to think my pharm studies can have a practical use.
Tell me all about cognitive ther for insomnia. Is it expensive? Is this done by a psych person?What is he name of he online program? Any time I can take an online course, I will. Also, did you get any good books on this subject? Maybe between books and online, I cold do a diy class!!!!
Write back soon...I need reassurances about tomorrow's sleep lab. Do they put a mask over your mouth or do they stick tubes into your nose? I am terrified because I wil be the only one who is at the lab without sleeping.They don't allow clocks and my watch does not glow. Maybe I should buy a cheap led watch..wonder if they would ban it.
When I get frustrated andm up more than an hour, I go online.
I hope you try my every other day suggestion for a week. Wouldn't it be awesome if that could help you?Iwould love the ability of just sleeping one hour, at this point.
You have a better nite than me. From the first half hour I lie down, the sleep is nowhere. I toss and turn.
Night is no longer my fave time for obvious reasons.
My mom's 90th birthday is tomorrow..she is Swiss..and my card is going to be late because my daughter was going to mail it for me and today she tells me she still ha the card. Kids!
Write soon!!! Thanx so much. Ginny
