Sleep has become a huge issue again for us lately. I try to do a sleep hygiene routine at night. I go to bed between 11 30 and midnight. On weekends and on weekdays where I don’t have too much to do, I read for a while. I try to wind down before bed. I don’t drink coffee at all after 8. I sometimes listen to the relaxation letting go of stress cd that Eileen gave me. But nothing helps. Eventually I do fall asleep but then I wake sporadically throughout the night. And when I wake I usually get up because if I stay in bed, I start to panick. I also have nightmares which aren’t helping matters. Trauma nightmares are the worst. They make you feel just awful. Of course no nightmare is ever fun, but when they involve memories of abuse and trauma its doubly scary. I really don’t want to have to go back on sleeping pills again. Dr Barry gave us some a few weeks ago, a five day supply. That helped but it was only short term. But now all the problems are resurfacing again. Does anyone have any suggestions? Do you do anything to help you to sleep?
