I have an appointment to see my doctor next week, and I'm looking for suggestions on what to talk to him about for help with getting to sleep. I sleep so lightly that the tiniest noise or movement wakes me.
I can't do Ambien because it makes me sleep too hard and I sleep through my baby (just under 3 months old) crying. Melatonin gives me horrible nightmares. Valerian root does nothing. Clonopin (sp?) didn't help either. I've had a sleep study done, and no, there is nothing physical wrong that keeps me awake/waking up. I have a strict night time routine that I always follow, so that's not the problem. But right now, I'm running on almost no sleep, have major PPD (still working on getting that under control), and am going to school full time. I'm running on empty and need help to try to at least get some sleep, but still be able to get up with my little guy.
