i hope you get the sleep you need MizzMonroe. It's very easy to get turned around and sleep in the day and be up all night. I've been unable to nap in the afternoon for a long time and I've been unable to get more than 3 hours sleep scattered through the long nights. It sucks because you feel like you're the only one in the world who is awake. Try to do some deep breathing and think of something that makes you happy and you'll drift off. Sleep well and let us know in the morning how you did.
Just a side note: A "drugged" sleep is NOT a restorative sleep. (I know we have to get what we can with what we've got).
Sending well wishes, gentle {{{Hugs}}} and positive vibes your way!!💕😊

We all know that we are not alone in our wakefulness at night! Agreed, a drugged sleep is not restorative, but can sure beat the heck out of the tossing, turning, painful, aching, awake but too tired in pain to get up and do anything about it pain... I hope you find your sleep tonight! Sweet Dreams! 🕊️🐫😇😴🦄🐏🐑🐣🐑🐏😴

Mich60, I agree with you that it beats tossing and turning, which I do even drugged. It's just a shame to have to sleep that way. I hate it and hate always being so tired

Oh Mizzy I know that feeling the constant exhausted and drained feeling never leaves me even when I sleep near on 20 hours a day!!!!
I wish there was a magic wand that would help us all but unfortunately life doesn't work like that 😢
