It's been a year since I've had trouble sleeping, but the zombie life has returned yet again. It comes and goes for unknown reasons, and I find myself feeling uncomfortably numb. I used to not sleep much at all - a few hours was enough. Then I started sleeping a full eight hours, but I would wake up once or twice in the middle of the night. I also don't have dreams often, usually nightmares. This past week, I've been waking up in the middle of the night and feeling completely exhausted when I actually do wake up.
I have tried herbal tea blends for better sleep, and for a while now, I've been sleeping with crystals under my pillow. My friend H gave me a dreamcatcher for Christmas, and I've been having better dreams too. However, it's been an emotionally rough week for me, and I also damaged the front of my car. I just hope this lack of sleep doesn't continue for much longer because I can feel myself weakening under the stress. H gave me a tip of disconnecting from the computer (and probably smartphone) an hour before bed. I'll give it a try tonight.
Do you have trouble sleeping, and how do you remedy it?
