For YEARS I have been a terrible sleeper. I could never get to sleep. It was like my brain lost the ability to "turn off" at night.
At first, I turned to sleep drugs... and they worked. In fact, they worked a little too well. I looked up one day and realized that I had been taking them for 6 months. Yikes!
Then, after being diagnosed with some stress related illnesses, my Dr. asked me about my sleep patterns. After hearing my struggles she mentioned something to me that I had heard a dozen times before... but for some reason I finally decided to try MELATONIN.
LIFE CHANGER! For me... to be able to take a VERY small amount of a natural hormone that my body was already producing (under producing) and actually falling asleep, AMAZING!
And... as my stress levels come down, I exercise more, and treat my body better... I am taking less and less of it.
Stress and sleep feed into each other creating a viscious cycle. I finally feel like I have broken this cycle for me.
If you are having trouble sleeping... ask your Dr about melatonin. For me, it worls.
