I don't know what's wrong with the girls. They've ALWAYS been bad sleepers. I even spent 4 days with them at a major hospital sleep clinic when they were about 4 months old and I think I'm the only person who's been through the clinic who's left with kids that slept as badly as when they arrived! It's very frustrating and very hard to continue to be a good parent when you have bags the size of China and can barely function without some sort of caffiene intake first thing in the morning.
Unfortunately the doc I'm seeing tomorrow is my IBS doc (the one who refuses to consider fibro). It's really hard seeing 2 doctors about 2 separate issues which are kind of intertwined.
Yep, this is my 3rd AD. The first one I ever took hyped me up, made my heart beat a thousand times a minute then gave me chest pains. It was great
The second one doped me out like this one did in the beginning but the doping seems to have worn off for nighttime and kicks in around the time I need to be getting up (despite me taking it about 3 hours before bedtime).
It drives me nuts. I can barely drag myself through the day, then bedtime rolls round and I'm so awake I don't know what to do with myself! Nothing seems to help, no amount of reading, meditating, or warm drinks will send me off to sleepland And now to boot I've had the tummy acting up for 48 hours and am back to pretty much SF food only, sigh, I guess there will be an end to it eventually.
Thanks for the help
