I promised that I would share my new, all-natural sleep aid once I made sure it worked and didn't give any kooky side effects.
It's been about a month and all is improving in the land of Snoozeville.
I still have bad nights every now and then, but not every night like before.
I was having serious issues with falling asleep and would lie awake until 2 or 3 am every night. Now, I'm asleep within 30 minutes or so.
There have still been a few times that I have woken up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom and couldn't get back to sleep, but they are rare and taking 2 of these little lozenges seems to nip that issue in the bud.
I found them on-line but you may also want to look for the pretty orange bottle at Whole Foods or your local health/vitamin shop.
They are made from Passion Flower Extract which naturally promotes relaxation and decreases the production of cortisol. Cortisol is mean and evil in my opinion. There doesn't appear to be anything poisonous in them and they're a tasty little sleep treat right before bed!
If you're a fellow insomniac, try them out and let me know what you think! What do you have to lose...but sleep?!
p.s. Why do I drink Baby Mama Juice? Because our house deal fizzled out. We have another showing tomorrow morning. That means I have to have the house in perfect condition by the time we leave at 8:15 for preschool. I'm really over all of this nonsense. I've been doing this for almost a year. Our new house is still 18+ months away from being ready. I think we may take a little breather and take our house off the market until spring.
