Sleep . . . Or No Sleep

WW-Sleep Or No Sleep

This was one of the prompts from last week’s writer’s workshop, and I wanted to write about it for the previous week, but I didn’t have the time, so I figured I would write about it today.  The prompt was to write a post about sleep, and I have tons I would love to say on sleep because for a long time readers you will know that I don’t sleep much.

I will take just about anything so that I can sleep but even doing that some nights I only end up sleeping for two hours and then I am up rest of the night. On nights like that I usually just end up taking a nap at night and then tossing and turning rest of the night. If I don’t take anything for sleep, I can promise you that I just won’t sleep, and that can go for days and days.

There was one sleeping pill that I used to get that did work but my insurance refuses to pay for it, and I don’t have over two hundred dollars laying around to pay for it each month.  I do take a muscle relaxer at night that knocks me out of a few hours, and that is pretty much all the sleep I get.

This has been going on for so long that I have run out of things to do or try. At this point and instead of getting better it is only getting worse. I have had sleep problems for as long as I can remember and the older I am not dealing with it as well as I used to.  It gets even worse because no doctor can tell me what is wrong and why I have this problem. I have to wonder if it is because of the Multiple Sclerosis but then again I have never heard of anyone else having this problem.

I often have people ask me how I deal with not getting much sleep at night, and I tell them I don’t have a choice but to deal with it because nothing seems to change it.  All I can do is chalk it up to my weird body and hope that it will get better at some point. I don’t know how long I can deal with everything that comes along with not sleeping and what not.

Do you have problems sleeping and if so what do you do to help you sleep?
