How did you sleep?
August 21, 2017 6:28am CST
Hubby and I cannot figure it out. Neither of us slept well at all. That is super unusual for him. I do not know if it was anticipation of today and I personally feel unprepared or if it was something we ate, or did not eat. When we slept we each had very bizarre dreams as well. Maybe we are anticipating the eclipse, and trying to figure out about getting the cat in before work. Maybe I am worried because the entire school is walking to a location to watch the eclipse, and I cannot imagine them all following instructions about not looking at the sun. I finally caught up to my notifications, and have had breakfast. Time to finish getting dressed and pack a lunch. Have a great day, be careful if you are in the path of the eclipse.

My psychiatrist had to prescribe me a sleep.medicine and now it has been so bad that I can't sleep unless I take a Zyrtec with it also then I get to sleep quickly but never stay asleep very long and I sleep a few hours a I get up around 12:00 -2:00am every day?

@GardenGerty I would have no problem believing medicines for other things also do the opposite, I was a nervous week for 34 years on anxiety meds and then I had a lithium toxicity and ended up in the hospital for almost three weeks. I was take off the anxiety meds and lithium and most of my other nie psychotropic meds. I am no longer anxious and haven't been since late June when they finally got out of my system! I wodner if rhe sleeping medIi was given does the same thing? I haven't slept well since last October or November and this is the first sleeping med I have had?

@GardenGerty That's quite a bit. Not everyone will be impressed with it. Maybe one day he'll look back at it and realize how important or exciting yesterday was. I understand it was the first one in a hundred years to go across the whole US.

It's weird how sometimes this sort of thing happens. I'm usually the one who sleeps well, while my husband not so much (at least, when he's not working). Hopefully, you guys sleep better tonight, or are able to grab a nap later.

I probably would have slept OK if I didn't have another one of those dreams where there's great food spread out and I never get to eat any of it!! Those dreams really piss me off! All that wonderful food and I never get to taste it!! Why does that happen? Is it because your conscious mind tells your unconscious that it's not real food? Last night there was both Italian food and Jewish food in my dream. I didn't get to eat any of it! I woke up as it was it being served to others.

It is so hard for me to fall straight to sleep. I am usually the one up while everyone else is snoring. I usually sleep on my side holding my 3 year old but I am back to work now on 3rd shift. I usually have to take medication to fall asleep because I have insomnia.
