I have struggled with insomnia on & off for the past 2 years. And its been steady the last 5 months. I take over-the-counter meds nightly, or I will Not sleep at all.
I tried Ambien, but I got addicted to it & THAT was a Bad experience. I was a mess when I ran out & without health insurance couldn't get more. NEVER again.
As to why,...maybe stress of being unemployed & the lack of a routine? Or other stuff. Im just guessing.
Everyone is a genius! If you were to judge a fish, by its ability to climb a tree,
it would think it was stupid all of it's life.
