It is 2:30 a.m. and I'm wide awake...not because I choose to be, but because my back,neck and my RLS have struck again. I've taken my meds, I've been using my tens, heat, soak..and nothing has helped. I'm sure my son will be up in no time and I already want to cry. Well, I'm am crying. It's been an overwhelming day. An overwhelming couple of weeks. My depression I'd at an all time high. I want to scream. I think I need to.

I hate painsomnia. It's the worst. I hope your night got better - and that you covered your face with a pillow before screaming. It turns out family members don't really appreciate being woken that way....

Haha sadly, I didn't get to scream. But if I can be woken up by a screaming baby the rest of the family should be cool with my screams. :P

Awe. I am sorry I just got on here today. Sending prayers your way. I hope something helped ease your pain. A pillow is great for screaming ☺ ((Gentle hugs))

One night I had finally fallen asleep when one of my boys screamed a blood-curdling scream at the top of his lungs. I suffered a serious cardiac episode while FLYING out of bed and down the stairs to his room. No one else woke up! Including my son, who was screaming in his sleep!
