ok, it's not "cured", but i finally found a website that helps. sleep like the dead is a website that includes detailed info on mattresses, including tons of consumer feedback on all popular brands and types. the guy who runs the site also writes about his experience with chronic insomnia, and how he was able to find relief with CBT tools. it has helped me tremendously.
it's a lot of hard work, getting off ambien after almost 10 years. my body doesn't remember how to sleep on it's own. but having the tools to keep my mind calm will help me continue on the path to sleeping like a somewhat normal person.
i got a funny spam comment on a recent post. do you think this guy is trying to woo me?
"HEAR YE! O HEAR YE! Wanna be at my BIG-ol, kick-ass, party-hardy celebrating our resurrection for eons and eons in Heaven Above, girly? A profusion of peace, eternal plethora of paradise, palm trees, 72ish degrees, fuzzy-navels, point-blank, passion-in-primetime, pink, picturesque-portions-we’ll-possess, delicious-and-nutritious perennial pleasures, too, without price, nor pride, without passwords, nor plastic, nor pretext. You’re more than welcome, girl; you’re definitely invited - God’s calling you through this sinfull mortal. Whether you respond YAY or NAY is up to you --- God only gives bawls to those who see the need for humility, Miss Indelible. God bless you."
god must have gave him the bawls...
