Re: Desertbloom - Your Sleep Problems

DesertBloom-this morning I did some research and found an excellent source of information that you may find helpful at University of Maryland Medical Center (all you need to enter is UMM) and sleep disorders. So it was "umm" "sleep disorders" . There is a discussion there about sleep hygeine, relaxation techniques, and treatment. I am sure you have already thought of this but are there any meds that you are on that could be contributing to your sleeplessness? Also, they did note how important it is that the room is dark. I know you said you are using a sleep mask. We made our bedroom super dark with black out curtains. They are just very heavy white cloth that you can get at a home store like Bed Bath and Beyond. They are not attractive curtains , you would put them behind your regular curtains or behind blinds. Also I have seen the black out fabric at fabric stores, so it can be sewn as a lining behind curtains.
