Did you manage to get to your gps and explain about your lack of sleep and see if he could look at your meds I know I am one of the lucky ones on here but after 21 years I have the perfect combination and get 7 hours sleep usually every night .. I know its med induced but everything feels so much easier to face after sleep

have you reported the dog barking ? my son and his partner have the same problem , they now keep a diary , it goes on til midnight or later and its right below their 2 year old sons bedroom

i hope you get your move this week , a nice new start and a holiday sounds wonderful

i hope you manage to sleep well tonight xx

Hi there tinkerbell,

it is a pain when your constantly having sleepless nights and think have another chat and keep going and getting on at them for your lack of sleep and if sleep clinic is where you end up going as no sleep meds are working then hopefully they will see and this will let them understand your fight for just some good sleep!

you have to try get sleep through the day as much as you can if you not getting on a night as you should not fight sleep even if it is when you dont need to go to sleep the most.

make sure you go on about your ankle too and try get some stronger pain meds to help.

Have you talked to neighbour mentioning the dog non stop barks in day when she not there.

I have this with my neighbour and i love her to bits as if she was my mum, but because she has retired and i was working a lot she got dogs in to keep her company, however because she is always with them and does not leave them much, they non stop bark between them whilst she is gone (it does not bother me i just turn my tv up and then again am out and about in car a lot) i too have a dog and she really annoys me because we have a field where ppl walk their dogs opposite and every time she just sees someone (which is a lot) she never shuts up and its awkward for me too i have to keep her in a lot. i was told to spray water on her everytime she barked by a trainer but it has little effect.

so neither of us complain at all for anything.

we all got some sort of animal on this street lol. but for you in your predicament and how you are the best way is just to say in passing if you can , just say, can tell when your out and when your in because your poochy always barks when your out hehehehe. maybe putting some tv on or music whilst the dog is alone may help as i leave music on low for my dog.

really hope you get some peaceful sleep soon ..i take sleeping meds as and when need but i tend to sleep in phases and being on meds and a glass of wine to end the night after a busy day with work etc this helps me personally, my mum horlicks helps her . everyone has different methods they use.

Nytol too is a popular sleeping pruduct and its herbal too, so maybe you can enquire and just check first it would be ok to use.

hugs caroline xxxx
