A light?

A light at the end of the tunnel?

As a last resort I called the doctor's office in the small town close to where I live (FYI:  I'm 10 minutes to civilization).  My kids go to school about 15 minutes away, and there is one doctor's office in town.  I called and asked if the doctor worked with bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (adrenal fatigue, etc.) and lo and behold, the answer was, "yes".

First appointment available was next Monday at 9 a.m.  (excuse me, but I am not available at that time in the morning).  Next appt. was next Wednesday at 3 p.m.  I said, "Yes, I'll take it."  Still a little concerned about having to wait that long.  However, grateful just the same.

I then had my husband stop on his way home from work to pick up some OTC sleep aide.  Exedrin P.M.  After reading all the warnings and believing the risk was worth a try I have taken two tablets  (equivalent to 2 benadryl).  60 minutes later I am still waiting for something to happen.  Anything.  Come on now.  Let's start the "may cause drowsiness" effect.

Adding 6 mg. of sub lingual melatonin to my cocktail of sleep aides.  Oh, wait.  I shall go take some Bach's Rescue Remedy as well.  Why not?!  It's homeopathic - no warnings.

Sadly, I am the kind of person that watches C-SPAN.  That kind of stuff doesn't even put me to sleep.  I'm not a totally boring person, I watched the Marx Brothers in "A night at the Opera" earlier.  My mom played all kinds of music when I was a kid and opera was the one thing that I could never quite learn to appreciate.  There was clearly too much opera in "A Night at the Opera".  Nevertheless, it was still entertaining.

Yes, I have all kinds of relaxing music.  I have some native American chanting, Yanni, Enya, Josh Groban, pan flutes (Southpark episode with aliens playing pan flutes was hilarious), piano with guitar, guitar with flute, guitar alone, piano alone (I picked some of those up at the dollar store a couple of years ago), hymns, gregorian chants, ocean waves, and no less than Donny Osmond.  I have a cornacopea of relaxing music that doesn't put me to sleep.  It is pleasant, though, and I am going to use some of it tonight.  Thanks for the reminder!

You are all so wonderful for sending a message and letting me know that I am not forgotten in my little world of sleeplessness.  My oldest daughter sent an e-mail telling me that I am always pleasant whenever she comes home to visit.  Of course, it helps that I usually stay behind closed doors during the morning hours when I am in the most pain.  What I am trying to say is:  because I can come here and be honest and vent, etc. I am better able to be relatively pleasant with my family.  (I think my husband gets the worst of my irritability.  Rewards in heaven, I should think.)

I'm sorry you get the brunt of my depression and woes.  It's amazing how kind people are even when they don't feel well.  A...ma....zing.  I am in your debt.  Great.  Now, I'm all veklempt.

LOL at being \"a little veklempt\"! That is ok! we will just \"Talk amongst ourselves!\"
And I understand the feeling of being glad to have this forum to vent etc...I try to just not even tell people in my life how I truly feel anymore..yet when people ask how I am and I say \"I am fine\" or \"I am good\" what I AM is LYING THROUGH MY TEETH! Shaking my head!

darn it... hit those keys again.

Is there a way they can fax a blood work order over to a lab NOW so they already have it when you go? It takes at least three days to mix up compounded Rx\'s.

If you can\'t \'woe\' here, where else can you?

Glad you found a doctor! I was even online trying to find a doctor for you that does BHRT, there wasn\'t too much in ID!

That\'s good news about the doctor. Relaxing music never helps me go to sleep either. I find myself concentrating on the music too much and thinking about the rhythms etc!!
