Sleep On Through To The Other Side

My name is Denise and I am an insomniac. It's a horrible affliction for someone who really loves to sleep. I go to sleep just fine. It's staying all night in the cozy arms of slumber that's my particular problem.

Juannie thinks I should go to a doctor to deal with my problem and get a prescription. But I hate taking medication and after reading this article about the weird effects of Ambien, I am even more hesitant to try a prescription sleep aid. I do like to have a cocktail or a glass of wine in the evening. That Lunesta commercial with the butterfly does look soothing, though.

But I'll just stick with taking half a Benadryl on the nights I suspect I might have problems sleeping - normally when I am stressed, worried, aggravated. Most nights that little pink pill does the trick. And on the nights I don't take anything and I wind up wide awake at 1:46AM, I'll just muddle on through.

(I also put the text of the article behind the cut because it's from Salon and I hate their premium article schtick.)
