Posting While Sleeping

Wow, I'm amazed! I actually wrote something intelligible in my previous post, even though I was sleeping. Well, I was actually under the influence. . . . of a sleeping pill. You know anxiety must be getting pretty bad when you take a sleeping pill and you still can't sleep. I take Ambien, which is fairly gentle, and my doctor did say I could take a second dose if I didn't fall asleep right away. So, the last post was written while I was waiting for the second dose to kick in. Apparently, the first dose had some effect on me because, when I woke up this morning, I had some very vague recollection of writing something on my blog in the night. Oh, my heavens! I hoped I hadn't written anything scandalous.

There are some seasons of my life when I need sleep aids more than others. When life is intense and stressful, I really need something to relax and to shut my mind down. Ambien is doing the trick, I guess, because I actually feel rested today.

Still, I think I might ask for some Xanax for Christmas.


  1. LOL, go for never hurts to have a back-up plan.

    Glad you are feeling rested, you'll need it for the next couple weeks I'm sure!

  2. I am with ya on the sleeping pill this time of year. I take a natural sleeping pill when I absolutely need it and it works wonders for me being rested the next day!
