Sleep Aids in Coping With Depression

Merely Me Health Guide
  • Hi everybody!


    This week for me has been disjointed and loopy.  There are so many things going on...I have experienced such a range of emotions... I truly don't know if I am coming or going.  Last night I barely got any sleep.  My son with autism is still adjusting to new medication and he was up at three am then my husband's pager goes off at nearly four am.  and my oldest son got up at seven for school so...maybe I got three to four hours of sleep.  I was feeling so distraught by everything in my life last night that I prayed. 


    Have any of you seen the movie, Eat, Pray, Love?  Or read the book?  There is a part in the movie when Julia Roberts is praying and she basically asks, "what do I do?" and she feels God answers, "Go to bed."  I guess I had a similar experience last night where I simply said, "Hey, I need some help."  and I felt an answer came of..."Help is on the way."  Was it wishful thinking on my part?  Was it a message from my own subconscious or was it divine?  I don't know.  Maybe it is not important for me know.  Just to believe...and trust that...things can get better.

    I am going to be writing some additional stuff over on my personal blog, I get by with a little help from my friends.  Forgive me for still being in the process of figuring this all out...what I am writing and where.  Let me say this...that I vow to be here for whatever capacity I can be.  You are the most important thing about this or any other site.
