Advantages: You get to hear the milkman when he arrives.
Disadvantages: Puffy eyes next day.
The minutes are ticking away, the snores can be heard from other rooms and yet you are wide awake.... Insomnia that dreaded of all sleep disorders. Who then does this condition affect ?
It would appear from medical information that anyone can suffer Insomnia.. the young... the old... overweight men... menopausal women. The condition can prevent you from actually getting off to sleep as well as preventing you from staying asleep.
The constant waking to peer all blurry eyed at the alarm clock for the umpteenth time during the night is not due to the fact that you particularly like the look of your alarm clock. You are suffering insomnia.
There are two types of Imsomnis ( not that you would be bothered which one you had ! ) 1. Central which is the most common and 2. Obstructive which is common in over weight men who take a large shirt collar size ! Yes apparently this has a bearing on your sleeping habits.
The condition causes a pausing in the breathing pattern which tells the brain that things are not functioning properly and you wake up.
Of course we all know that such things as stress can cause sleepless nights, or worry over a person or finances... There are countless reasons why our sleep patterns could be interrupted and we have all, I am sure, suffered this at some stage of our lives. Personally I think that each town should run an Insomniacs club where you can phone or text the other person ( knowing of course that they are awake ) and have a good old chat to while away the night !!
Things that I have tried to help me sleep are numerous and only some have the desired effect. Milky drinks before retiring are supposed to help although I really do not want to be drinking gallons of hot milk before bed !! yeuck ! Lavender... now this I do have in the form of one or two drops on the corner of my pillow.... this does enable me to have a reasonable night. I am sure that my mother used to dab lavender on her pillow and I vowed that I would never be seen doing that when I was older !! Sorry mum you could have been right.
What ever the cause of Insomnia, it is a darn nuisance and although there is medical treatment available in varying forms ( I will endevour to write a review at a latter date on those available ) I for one do not want to take this course of action.
I have a system that seems to work well for me... I dab my pillow with lavender, I plug in my mobile phone radio and have the earpiece in situ whilst listening to either comforting music or an educated discussion and I think lovely thoughts about a special person that is close to my heart... It never fails !
Sleep easy and well and thanks for reading.... hope that this review was not too boring that you fell asleep reading it !!!
Summary: To sleep or not to sleep... That is the question
