This Is The Face of Insomnia

People, I can't take this anymore.

Please don't take your good sleeping habits for granted.

I currently cry at the drop of a hat and am coping with significant motivation challenges.

This exhaustion has also dipped my big toe in the Sea of Depression- questioning everything from my talents and commitments to my friendships and lifestyle habits.

I am currently trying a second prescribed medication to combat this insomnia (first it was temazepam, now I'm on Xanax), but so far, nothing's working.

I totally get why Elvis relied on uppers and downers.

Here's to hoping for sleep filled nights *without* turning into a junkie.

I'm just wondering why they haven't given you Ambien??? I'm guessing that the Xanax didn't work either?

Silver lining: Your glasses are adorable.

Seriously, though - that sounds terrible. My suggestions, in order of how healthy they are for you:
- Vigorous exercise
- Alcohol
- Vicodin? (OK, I've never actually tried Vicodin, but I hear it's nice.)

I definitely agree with the exercise and being active comments. I've been reading your blog for a long time now and am a fan of your writing, so it sucks to be going through a hard time. But personally, I know I have issues sleeping when I'm not exercising. It makes you more alert throughout the day and feel better overall.
