I hate taking pills, remedies and everything else that is “Sleep Aid” approved. I am fine with taking something for a head ache. Other than that, I refuse to take anything. I broke my wrist in the 7th grade and never took what the doctor ordered. Why? Because I was passed out for like 3 days and it really didn’t hurt. I have this mentality that says: “It’s already at its worst point of pain, it can’t get worse. So I just suck it up and bite my lip.
I have this problem though called “Not Sleeping”. Boy does it suck goats for qwarters. Yes Qwarters like I am from Boston. Staying up for 18 hours is not fun. it might sound fun when you are nine years old. But when you need to be at work everyday at 9 am, life gets super tough. I can run on 3 hours of sleep apparently. I know this because I do it as part of my daily routine. Yep. Every night I am asleep by 4:30 am and up by 8:30 am and rushing out the door.
There are good days thought. Sometimes I can come home and be passed out by 8:00 pm and up at 6:00 am. Not bad, except the next night I will be up for 23 hours. So I am on a roller coaster of sleep and it never ends.
So today I went to Target and bought ZzzQuil. Designed to put anyone to sleep and non habit forming. Some reviews of the product says that it doesn’t work. Some say it’s the same thing as a “Benadryl (Diphenhydramine)“. So hopes are that I pass out. More to follow.
