When will sleep come?

Funny enough, hours after writing my previous blog post about recovering from the flu and praising the value of sleep, I was tossing and turning in bed trying desperately to get my daily requirement of it. No matter how dark my room was or how long I closed my eyes, my mind simply remained too wound-up and active hours after I took to bed.

The next day I woke up feeling dull and insipid. Driving to the office proved tiring again, and once there I could barely stay productive.

Insomnia, delayed sleep phase disorder or whatever you might call it, I've definitely got it. It's a transient case, but it's gotten more frequent these days and it stinks.

I'm considering buying some sleeping pills to help my poor sleep habits.

Are you still insomniac? One of my teachers has a brand of sleeping pills, I think its called Sleep-a-cil (I'm not sure about the spelling, hehe..) and its available at Mercury Drug, etc. He said he imports it from US so it has to be good and well-tested.

Anyway, just trying to help. :)

Yep, I bought a few Sleepasil capsules over the weekend at a friend's recommendation also. It's technically not a sleeping pill because it's not a drug; it's more of a sleeping aid.

It's been pretty effective at making me sleep, although since I've tried it, I seem to be programmed to wake up at 5:30-6:00 am.

Thanks Kathy :)
