So I can't frickin' sleep. I haven't been able to sleep properly for well over a year. It started towards the end of my pregnancy, then all the baby sleep hell stuff, and now my sleep cycles are destroyed and beyond recognition.
I do the basic stuff already. Cup of herbal tea before bed, no screen time for at least an hour before bed, go to bed and wake up at the same times. It's not helping.
Melatonin makes me sleepy, but if I wake up, I rouse too completely and often can't go back to sleep. This pattern comes and goes. Sometimes it's not so bad. Sometimes it's a disaster.
I'm *thisclose* to call my doctor and going the Ambien or Lunestra route. I don't want to do it, but I'm seriously considering it.
Any stories or advice are much appreciated.
