|This Is What I Do At Night|
When I Can't Sleep
Disclosure: This post is for informational purposes only. If you suffer from insomnia and chronic pain, please consult your doctor, health care provider, or pain management doctor. This information is based upon my own experiences with chronic pain and insomnia.
Instead, I find myself lying awake part of the night. I usually end up playing games, tweeting, or reading while I listen to my husband snore. I have tried taking my pain medicine at different times during the evening, hoping that it would help me get to sleep at a normal hour. No matter what I do, I find myself awake until midnight or later.
The next morning, I wake up and get my kids ready for school. After I drop off my oldest son at school, I come home and take my morning pain medicine. It seems as if it works within the first thirty minutes after taking it. I barely can keep my eyes open and find myself asleep in the bed for several hours. It seems that I can sleep much better during the day, I dunno if it is because my body is exhausted and needs sleep at this point or that it is warmer outside.
I just wish I could be normal and sleep at night. I don't like laying in bed tossing and turning, hoping that I can get comfortable enough to fall asleep. The insomnia is no fun and it takes a toll on everyone around you. So if you find yourself on this page, join me on twitter and we can chat about our insomnia together.
