I'm not having my usual insomnia problems right now (usually it's hormonal and happens at certain points in my cycle), but my kids took turns waking each other up until after midnight last night, which really triggered my insomnia anyway. I took trazodone and fell asleep pretty promptly, but my two year old woke up crying twice more, and all three were up for the day at like 6:30 as usual. In the end I only got four hours. I feel like there's a brick inside my head. What do you do to pull yourself together when this happens? It's been a long time since I've been on prescription sleep aids. Back then there used to be this awesome thing called "sleeping in" you could maybe do if you didn't get enough sleep... There was also this thing called a nap ? Unfortunately those things no longer exist, so I need something other than supplementary sleep.
