Only 4 hrs sleep is a lot to deal with . I know the feeling. Insomnia sucks. It affects your outlook on everything . I also know that feeling of having the world at your feet but also having this condition of insomnia which can limit & affect your life in various ways. Be in touch with your heart versus your mind & Stay positive .

Take care

Hello ,

just checking in & wondering how you are....


Hey Billie - Have you had you sleep checked to make certain you do not have apnea? I never knew I had it until July this year, but the more I research it, the more I learn how serious it is and how much it can really mess us up - everything from confusion to pain to weight gain to heart problems and on and on.. Here's sending you gentle hugs..
