I. Can't. Sleep. Let me rephrase that-I fall asleep, sleep soundly until 1:00 am and then my eyeballs suddenly open and I cannot get back to sleep. This has been going on for the past 3 weeks and I have tried a variety of remedies-from just laying in bed, to listening to relaxing sounds, to actually getting up and logging in to my company and working. Nothing is helping. If you read my last entry here, I started exercising and eating better again this past week. Part of me was hoping that would help but it hasn't , at least not yet. I only drink one cup of coffee in the morning and have not been drinking anything besides water after that lonely cup o' joe so I am stumped.

So what does lack of sleep do to someone like Mrs. McGyver? Yesterday it caused her to put on one brown shoe and one black shoe (exact same style, just different colors) and not notice it until she stepped foot into the office. This morning she finished her morning routine and began applying hairspray only to realize that she had picked up the wrong can and was spraying mousse instead.

Anyone got any good night sleep tricks?

Boy can I relate to you on this one...
Try "Sleepy Time" Tea. It's a great combo of herbs that work really well. Kava Kava root works good too.

Or you can go to the Dr. and get a Rx some Trazodone. Stuff works great, and it's non-addicting.

Good luck!

If your not sleeping ~ call me!!!
That is Michael's favorite time to call Mom, when I am asleep... but then he talks!! Hey I always fall back to sleep so next time just pick up the phone & dial a 'friend' ~ I can always use a good laugh day/night. I miss you.

I feel your pain. I've been waking up at 4am. Wide awake, staring at the ceiling. Ugh. If you find any magical cures, let me know! :-)
