It seems like forever since the last time a blogged. So many things have happened this year! I started working on my Masters Degree, I got engaged, celebrated another birthday, welcomed another nephew into the world, spent a lot of time with Steve’s and my family, UTSA football kicked off, etc!!!! At night I find myself wanting to write about all the life changing experiences I have gone through these past few months but I am just too exhausted to collect my thoughts and write a witty article.
It used to be that I was so tired I would fall asleep with absolutely no issues…. there wasn’t a single thing that could keep me from my sleep. Except for food of course! But lately, I find my mind racing. Whether work, family, friends or school it just doesn’t seem to want to shut off. I wonder if a lot of it has to do with the fact that I stopped working out like I used to or that my brain is challenged daily with school work or I am trying to figure out where my career and future are heading? Who knows- maybe its a collection of all things.
As I entered the last year in my 20′s I realized that growing up and being a responsible adult is not AT ALL what I envisioned as a child. Sure, you have more independence and money to spend but you also have more responsibilities and headaches to deal with. Putting your ducks in a row so you can start to have a family becomes priority number 1. Don’t get me wrong… I am not complaining. I LOVE my life! I am blessed with a great job, a wonderful family, loyal friends and a loving fiance. I just never thought that with all of these wonderful things in my life that I would find it difficult to sleep at night.
A coworker suggested Dream Water. That didn’t work for me. I found it made me sleepy and 2 hours later I was completely awake. Melatonin did the same thing. Tylenol PM and Nyquil became my best friends but I stopped taking them because they cant be good for your liver. I saw a doctor and he prescribed me some sleeping medication. That seems to be the only thing that helps. Thats sad isn’t it? How is it that when my life was more chaotic, I got better sleep? Anyways, if anyone knows of a good natural sleeping remedy please share with your girl
Sweet Dreams to you all,
