I woke up this morning with a smile on my face

and drool covering the left side of my face and I was happy - the happiest I've been at 8:30 am in as long as I can remember.

And what do I have to thank for my good fortune?? A big black sheet, tacked over my windows. I hadn't been sleeping well for a while and I couldn't figure it out. I felt like there wasn't enough separation between my waking life and my sleeping life. My stress and anxiety spilled over into my dreams and I was stressed about being that stressed! I'd go to the bathroom in the middle of the night and feel 100% awake and alert which is no fun at 3 am. Then I'd wake up in the morning with a furrowed brow that would remain all day and I'd feel tense from not getting to experience the escape that sleep should provide!

Well folks, take it from me. If you're someone who experiences similar sleeping problems, I strongly encourage you to black out your room as much as possible and let yourself enjoy your first good night of sleep in a long time...even if you drool buckets - it's a sure sign that you're deep in drool sleep.

P.S. I might have overlooked one integral ingredient to last night's sleeping success. Jonah sang Bob Marley medleys to me until I fell asleep. One song seamlessly into another! With extreme emotion and rich accent imitation! That must not be overlooked.


chao-li, glad to know that you seemed to have found a cure for your sleeplessness (is that a word?). even glad-er that you married a good man who lovingly sang you into asleep (it was a good thing in this case, wasn't it?). In my case, it would be an annoying voice saying "turn off the light, honey..." when I was trying painfully to read myself into asleep...

I just pop a few Ambien chase it down with a beer and Iím as good as knocked out. (Not recommended for anyone else)

Im glad you fixed your sleep problem.

This is why my bedroom is painted black...although it's only a quick fix (as I've since found out)
