HELP.....

what I would do for some sleep. I am up all night every night. I am averaging 3 to 4 hours a night...but closer to 3. I am not functioning very well.....but I guess who would be.

I am going to the doctor on the 21st of this month, but would love any ideas that can help me before then.

I can be sitting on my bed or at the computer in the middle of the day and fall asleep. I am so tired. I am fine when driving or outside. Fresh air does help me out.

I cannot get comfortable when I sleep and sometimes feel like there is weight on my chest. So I try to sleep elevated or I go to couch to sleep.

I just feel like I am slowly falling apart.

If you can send some prayers to me and that my appointment next week goes well it would be appreciated.

Yes, prayers absolutely! Sleep is so essential. It's necessary for a body to be healthy; it's also necessary for mental health. One of the hardest things for me about having preemie twins was the lack of sleep, and its challenges. I understand!!!

I hope you get some rest soon, and some answers from the doctor.

I'm so sorry you've been having all these problems sleeping! Will be praying for you at your appt that you get some answers.

In the meantime have you tried Melatonin? It's a sleep aid that you can get OTC, that might help; at least it's supposed to help the body get into a natural sleep pattern.

Hey - I'm thinking of you. I know how hard functioning without sleep is.

I am keeping you in my prayers. I'm glad you are getting in to the doctor!
