my friend forced me to go buy it yesterday since i told her i've been sleeping 2-3 hours everyday for the past month and a half. it first started out at falling asleep at 3am, then 4 am, then 5 am...and now i can't fall asleep for the life of me until about 8 which leaves me about an hour to sleep since i like to get up early.
unisom is a sleep aid and supposedly it says it's non-habit forming. last night i took it at 10 pm and knocked out cold until 5 am. i woke up feeling amazing. i haven't had sleep like that in so long...can't even recall.
but man...it's really frustrating sometimes, you're so sleepy and tired but you just can't fall asleep. it's like there's a block or something that's preventing you from sleeping. my mind can not shut off at all, and if you try to think of not thinking, you're still thinking and everything just goes off on a tangent from there.
hopefully this unisom thing can help me get my body in the habit of falling asleep at regular times. this 1-3 hours a day thing for the past month and a half is really taking a toll on my body and emotions! sleep is important. that's when your mind and body repairs itself. :/
