I have to be up in four hours to get the kids up and drop my oldest off at school, I've been laying in bed for 3 hours now trying to fall asleep.. but everytime i close my eyes and start to get closer i start feeling kind of panic-y amd paranoid... idk how else to explain it :/ dh hasn't been home since very very early saturday (i.stayed up all night friday with him) and last night i slept on the couch after a lot of struggle with myself and using the tv to fall asleep. but the baby monitor died and the babys dowm.stairs, no way id hear him from upstairs if i went to sleep on the couch :/ I'm exhausted but can't freaking sleep!!

Same here. When I get panicky like that I use my white noise machine, it helps most of the time.

Sorry you can't sleep. I'm exhausted too. I worked 6am-6pm, went home and played with my kids, tried and failed at napping, now I'm working 11pm-7am

Watch tv or read until you pass out. That's what I do. I have bad anxiety at night

We don't have one :/ normally they annoy me more than anything lol. I should probably get one for the baby though maybe it'd help him...

CM wouldnt load up last night after I posted >.< I ended up not sleeping because if I'm not asleep by 3 or so I don't typically wake up to my alarm  for a while so I just stayed up so DS would get to school on time

I'm sorry, I'm lucky in that I don't work but can't nap cause my 2 yr old doesn't nap anymore...
