I have always needed 8 or 9 hours of sleep. I am 70 now and am lucky ifI get 5 to 6. They are broken. I take meds for chronic pain, so I also take more drugs to help me sleep. I believe my insomnia is dou to my husband and I raising our 16 year old grand daughter for the past year. My health has gone down hill very fast. I do believe it comes mostly from stress. I only pray I can regain some health when she returns to her mother. I am a worrier. I used to take 2 Tylenol PM for a long time, now Marinol,Trazadone 100 mg, 2 Benedryl. I still wake up after a few hours, some nights I wake after a couple of hours and I lay awake all night. Things will.get better by summer when
I do not have to be up at 5 am to send the GD off to school each day.
Happy dreams everyoneView Thread
