We went for a long hike Tuesday to try to wear me out, not that I need any help in that department. I've been feeling foggy and sluggish from not getting the proper rest. I was also thinking that little blue pill was the magical answer and took one Tuesday night at bedtime. Nope, it didn't put me to sleep. I guess that's a good thing anyway because I hate the grogginess and dry mouth and all together hangover feeling I get from sleeping pills and I really hate taking any kind of pill period.
I'm working on several alternative things to help me sleep. One is melatonin and another is a crash course on Biofeedback that my step dad instructed me on, visualization techniques and I ordered this sleeping mask. It'll arrive next week and I'll try it out. I'm willing to try almost anything at this point. I do think the melatonin is helping. Also, getting early morning sunlight to help regulate my internal clock.
Here's the pictures from our camping trip.
