Apr 10, 2016 11:38 PM

Been a while boit two weeks since I've had tondeal with painsomia but on top of it all i got vertigo and horrible nausea. I've been doing well with moving around and keeping on track with my stretches but I suppose it's caught up to me.
Don't really have anything to say not sure what I'm thinking. Just up

Newfibrogirl I am so sorry that you are dealing with painsomnia. I don't know if you have tried to listen to music quietly while you are laying awake. Something that is quiet and gentle and soothes your soul. Perhaps that will distract your brain enough to help your body relax and allow you to drift off. If you wake up, get up from bed, walk around a few minutes (don't turn on the lights) and then go get back into bed and if you hit a really cozy spot when you lay back down, DON'T move.. Close you're eyes and think of something soothing and you'll fall back asleep. I hope and pray that you can get sone winks. Sending you lots of love, gentle {{{Hugs}}} and prayers for a restful night. 💕🙏🏻🌻😍

For you, any time, Boo!!!! That's what I'm wanting.. A snack. Just what I need.. LOL... Just took my dose of Zanaflex and am still having to take 8mg instead of 4 because of my neck. I think it's the only reason I may fall asleep tonight. Lots of love, gentle {{Hugs}} and prayers for a better night ahead. 💕🙏🏻🌻❤️

I'm sorry you aren't sleeping due to pain. AlwayZ's suggestions are exactly what I do when I'm struck with painsomnia. Hugs & prayers tonight will be a better night. 🙂💕🙏🌼
