Once upon a time I was an insomniac. I suffered with it for over 20 years. Of course, I worked odd hours, so... well you know....Today, I suffer only sporadic problems usually lasting only a night or two. I have not had a full 8 to 9 hours of sleep in weeks. Somehow my body wants to stay up until 3am, yet it continues to wake up at 8am or sometimes earlier. I feel like I should rest, yet I am not feeling sleepy during the day. I can just get up and go about my day. This is very similar to when I was an insomniac and working those odd hours. I hate to admit this, but I am a tad older than when I could run on 5 hours of sleep. Yet so far the only symptom seems to be my frustration with the lack of sleep. Somehow I just know I will pay for this very soon with some nasty MS relapse. What are your strategies for getting to sleep? Tonight I plan to use a self-hypnosis method. Worked in the past.
