I have nightmares almost every time I sleep so I resist it even though I have meds.
I think it's time to give in for a bit.
In Peace and Healing,

I don't function well without structure. I don't think I have been sleeping normal since highschool and that was 18 yrs ago. A set schedule would be heaven..nice banking hours or something. My schedule now could be defined as chaos, but I have to work and that is that.
As far as caffine goes...well, I love coffee!!! I must have 2 cups to start my day and 2 in the afternoon (unless I substitute this with a tall glass of iced tea) or I am hell to live with. I know...I am making excuses.
Plus, my husband would agree that I am addicted to the internet. I admit I do enjoy this, but it has gotten worse since I found Pandys....but I have felt better mentally than I have in such a long time.
Sleep is nice though and I wish I slept at a more normal time and length of time. It doesn't matter if it is cold or hot in my room, I must be wrapped up in a blanket or a sheet like a cacoon in order to be comfortable. It makes me feel safe and secure. Is anyone else like that?
Sweet dreams to you all and don't let the bed bugs bite.
