At the risk of boring you to tears...
At the risk of boring you to tears, my blog buddies, I have to record here in my journal of life
yet another endless-sleepless night last night!
And - yes, indeed, I did take my MELATONIN. This usually works for me but I have found there are some nights when the stress and worry level is just too high and I can expect to be awake all night!
It would not have mattered-as I could have slept whenever it came-whatever the hour, day or night and got caught up- but I had an early Dr.'s appointment which had been postponed twice already, that I had to keep!
This fact in itself was one of the things keeping sleep beyond my reach, along with numerous other things that I couldn't shut off!
I tell you- it's no fun going to bed at 11:00 PM and still being awake at 5:00 AM. I finally did get a couple hours before getting up to get ready for my 9:00 AM appointment!
The appointment was a follow up on lab work I had a few months ago and, apart from my sleep problem, things are ok with me! (Well, mostly ok)
The doctor was skeptical about my Melatonin use as a sleep aid and repeated what I have heard other folks say...that it may work if I THINK it works!
( LOL- Which makes little sense to me...either it will work or not- no matter what I think about it! )
Anyway, my doc, being in the business to write prescriptions, did just that...a prescription for a sleep aid. I have used this one before and it does work well but leaves me more groggy than Melatonin did! My doc says Melatonin is not regulated and he doesn't approve of it's use for his patients! OK - I will give this new pill a chance- and hope it helps me!
Hey-I wonder if it requires me to BELIEVE it will work-as the Melatonin does!! :) A question I should have asked my doctor!
After coming home I went back to bed and was able to get a good sleep...Isn't life strange! (same bed-nothing really changed...)
...But life is good, too!
This little story that I read tonight made me smile!
Stowaway kitten makes it home again
Man who picked up the wrong suitcase returns the missing Florida tabby

PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. - How many lives did kitten Gracie Mae use up when she crawled into her owner's suitcase, went through an airport X-ray machine, got loaded onto a plane, thrown onto a baggage belt and mistakenly picked up by a stranger far from home?
"She's got to be at four or five now," Seth Levy said after his 10-month-old pet was returned Sunday night by a kind stranger who went home to Fort Worth, Texas, with the wrong bag and Gracie inside to boot.
The last time Levy's wife, Kelly, saw Gracie was before she took her husband to the airport. The 24-year-old went back to her house in Palm Beach Gardens late Friday to find the bottom step, where Gracie would usually be waiting, empty.
She tore the house apart looking for the cat, who had been spayed just days before. She and her dad took out bathroom tiles and part of a cabinet to check a crawl space and papered the neighborhood with "lost cat" signs.
Then she got a phone call.
"Hi, you're not going to believe this, but I am calling from Fort Worth, Texas, and I accidentally picked up your husband's luggage. And when I opened the luggage, a cat jumped out," Kelly Levy quoted the caller saying.
Rob Carter said he made it home with the suitcase before realizing it was not his — and there was a big surprise inside.
"I went to unpack and saw some of the clothes and saw it wasn't my suitcase," he said. "I was going to close it, and a kitten jumped out and ran under the bed. I screamed like a little girl."
Carter said that he eventually was able to get the cat to come out from under the bed.
"In the morning, I got close enough to see its collar and the phone number on it," he said. "So I called the number and got a hold of the crying wife of the traveler."
The tabby made the 1,300-mile trip home on an $80 plane ticket. Carter said he considered keeping the cat before he knew she had a home.
"We were going to name it Suitcase," he said.
...So...How was your day?
(ceaseless and sleepless :) )
