mid-afternoon break

a mid-afternoon break from SLEEPING mind you... i can't complain too much because they banged on the door until they woke me up, however, it was so i would move my car so that they could plow the bejeezus out of the parking lot. it's basically almost like a parking lot again. unfortunately when i started my car, it sounded... funny. i am hoping it's just from not getting much exercise. but, yeah, just something else to add to my ginormous list of anxieties. oh, yeah, i guess that above was kind of misleading... i was already awake when they started banging on the door. i awoke with bizarre paranoia that a number of unlikely things that i don't need to worry about will happen. tee-riffic. i wonder if this is just the "anxiety" portion of my normal mood cycle. i hope it passes, because frankly it is far worse than any of the rest of my bad moods. i'm going to try to go back to sleep... but right now... extremely jittery and weird. i have decided to lay off the tylenol PM for a while because after something someone said i realize that maybe i DO run a danger of getting addicted to it (psychologically, if nothing else).

I'm sorry about the sleeping and the interrupting, let me know if there's anything I can bring you or whatnot.

BUT - oh sweet mary thank GOD they are plowing that lot!

Have you tried melatonin? I haven't used it myself but I know several people who swear by it.
When I'm having problems sleeping I normally have some sleepytime tea or start to read study guide for any computer related certification - that always puts me right to sleep ;)

But when I needed to sleep during the day I would always have make sure all light is blocked out - either with an eye mask or heavy drapes and put on a soothing cd - the kind you'd use for massage therapy. Don't know if this would help for you, but the soothing cd was really helpful when I was tense or stressy about something - it managed to lull me into relaxation.

Yeah... I have alot of good tactics for getting to sleep, so I tend to be OK in that regard. Books on tape, tea, reading things that are boring, soothing music, and trust me, it's dark as NIGHT in my room all day. However, over the past month, the problem tends more to be that I wake up like 2 hours after I went to sleep. Getting BACK to sleep seems to be the problem. :( I had been doing so well until Christmas/New Years' and then my schedule got weird. Blah.

Tylenol PM?
Oh dear. Have you really let your substance muscles get in such poor shape? Get addicted to something with a little bite to it for goodness sake. If you get addicted to Tylenol PM I'm going to find every junkie I can find, and I'm going to send all of them to your house so that they can LAUGH at you and hit you up for quarters, and it's going to last until either you're in tears or they're ready for their fix and have to leave.

Re: Tylenol PM?
Hmm... just how do you go about finding junkies?

Wait, I don't want to know.
