Dream a little dream for me....


I have always been a sleeper. I like to sleep...but do you ever have those days, or weeks where
you don't sleep. You toss and turn and you try everything to get to sleep. When I was working I used to hate those times, because I used to look at the clock and get all stressed and say to myself you only have 4 hours till you need to get up, 3 hours and on and on. And then you get to work and your exhausted. Since menopause ( i know your saying to yourself but she is so young lol) it has got worse. The doctor says this to shall pass. She gave me sleeping pills, I really take enough pills so I don't need these. I don't take them. So at least I don't have to stress about going to work tired, after all I could take a nap and nobody would care.

Well today is an errand day, already it is 7:14 am I have taken the dog for a walk, and am just about out the door taking hubby car in servicing. He had to fly out of town today so could not do it. See another benefit of me not working. Then a little of this and that. Well enough for now talk to you all soon.

  1. My menopause CD series that I'm listening to (which is FABULOUS, by the way) just mentioned in this morning's segment that one of the symptoms during peri-menopause is insomnia, or waking up early. I drop off to sleep like a rock, usually about 9 p.m., and I am awake by 3:30 a.m., and I mean AWAKE! But I'm with you; I'm very skeered of sleeping pills. I just get up and journal or sit with my cat.

    Hi Lee...

    I'm hoping all is well with you. Was just thinking of you and thought I escape my world and visit yours. Miss you.

  3. I don't usually have any trouble sleeping although my mom suffered from insomnia. I actually don't like to sleep! It seems like such a waste of time that I could be doing something else that's fun!!

  4. I have always been an insomniac all my life but it has gotten worse since this perimenopausal thing. I'm glad I don't have a job at the moment and I'm sure my perspective employer is glad I don't have a job at the moment. Night of the walking zombie! I hope you sleep well tonight and are well rested tomorrow! Blessings.
