I have had insomnia for 15 years. I have PTSD, I take 400mg of Trazadone which gives me 3 hours of sleep. Most people get 8 hours from half that dose. Lol

I'm getting ready to make a cup of capachino....salted caramel. Yum

Columbian coffee with creamer and equal for me. Yours sounds better though.

I'm don't like coffee. This is easing me into the taste. For Christmas DH got 1000 k - cups from his employees. So we have a lot of flavors to choose from.

I loved our Keurig. So many choices.

Btw, I have fibromyalgia, so insomnia has been a part of my life for about 18 years. It seems to get worse as I get older. If I try to take anything for it, I will then sleep all day the next day or sometimes a two day hangover.

Sorry to hear that. And yeah my husband has an awful time with medications. He can take a quarter of the dose i take and he will be out of it for days

Our Keurig got worn out. We were at Dollar General and they had an off brand, with a water resivoir for 50 bucks. We love it.

I take Trazodone as well, 350mg.  It puts me to sleep initially but I wake up after about 3 hours too.  Sometimes I lie there, sometimes I just get up.  It blows my mom's mind I take that much because she takes it too but only 50mg and sleeps all night!

I understand and feel you!  Hope you get some rest soon.

I have my coffeemaker set for 4:30 AM but normally have to get up and turn it on before then.

When ours wasn't working anymore, we decided it was cheaper to just go back to a regular pot. We make two pits a day sometimes.

I'm so reactive to meds that I have to warn anesthesiologists about it when I have surgery or anything. With my second baby, he didn't listen and had to give me meds to correct his mistake. He was really upset about it.
