To Sleep or Not to Sleep

For the past two weeks, I have been struggling with insomnia--even worse than my usual night owl habits. I have NOT been able to sleep. I know I am notorious for staying up late, but this has been different. I am talking NO sleep--being up until 5am, and dragging myself into work, late, late, late, and feeling horrible.
It didn't help that the past two weeks at work have been two of the most stressful since I started at the company a year ago. It has been nuts, and my nerves have been shot.
My doctor had called in a prescription, and my insurance company denied it. It took over a week for my doc to get that cleared up. I honestly didn't have much hope for it working, as I haven't had luck with any sleep medications before.
But, on Friday, I picked up the prescription, and took the first dose on Friday night. And finally-- I got a full night's sleep and woke up Saturday morning actually rested! It was amazing, I felt like a new person. I had so much energy, it was wonderful! So, thank goodness for Sonata--which is what I am taking.
Anyway, for those of you that thought I had dropped off the face of the earth lately, I have just been too tired or grumpy or busy at work to be social. Hopefully this week will be better!

Glad the new med worked. I was heading to your house with a sledgehammer and we were gonna knock you out the old fashioned way.

Good to hear you're sleeping. It's awful, though i don't suffer from it much, occasionally i wake at 5 and can't sleep again. Then, at 7.30 when i have to get up i could sleep for a week.
