my Sanctuary


Welcome to my sanctuary. This is a place for me to share the ups and downs of my life as a mother, woman, friend, and subbie. To revel in the triumphs and work through the difficult parts, but to always be me...the good...the bad...and the playful.

Sleep It's A Good Thing

Sleep is a good thing.  For those that know me, they know that i don't sleep well. Usually it's only a few hours a night and most of that is spent tossing and turning.  i've started taking meds for my anxiety and that's helped somewhat over the last month or so, but i was still having trouble falling asleep so on my last doctor visit the doctor prescribed some sleeping meds.

Needless to say, i've had two nights in a row of blessed sleep. i can't tell you how wonderful it feels to wake up rested...actually rested.  So often i wake more tired and worn out than when i went to bed in the first place, but this morning i woke...rested and refreshed.

The majority of my anxiety happens at night, when for the life of me i just can't get my brain to turn off.  Thoughts and fears run amok playing havoc with my brain.  It probably wouldn't be so bad if my brain didn't go over all the negative things that have or could happen.

As another wonderful bonus, the meds have a muscle relaxer in them, and my back doesn't hurt in the morning.!!!

So things are looking up...i'm starting to feel better. my emotions are getting under control, anxieties under some measure of check, and i'm getting some real rest.  Hopefully, this is the time for everything to start turning around in my life for the positive.  one can only hope.
