Insomnia and I go way back. We are going on 16 years now. 16! I am lucky to get a solid week of sleep once a month. That's it. One week. I have tried everything the doc has prescribed. I have tried everything herbal. Nothing helps. Apparently this is my cross to bear. I have a theory as to why I can no longer sleep. I was put on antidepressants when I was 14. I remember sitting up at night, awake for days at a time. After long term use, I think it ruined the part of my brain that tells you to sleep. That drug was pulled from the market a long time ago. I have grown accustomed to always feeling tired. I have some days where I feel like I have taken really strong cold medicine. I have days when I won't drive cuz my reaction time is probably worse than that of someone who has been drinking. On my really bad weeks I can feel my brain struggling to work right. I mess up words. I am ill tempered. I have trouble processing information. I can't remember things. It gets old. Thanks for listening.
