I found this quote in thepaleomom.com (a website that I frequent when I search for healthy recipes): Hormones are like a symphony and circadian rhythms are the conductor. It's super important to regulate your sleep times - go to bed at the same time and wake at the same time (within 15ish minutes). Preparing for sleep (like always drink a glass of warm milk, take a bath, or read) helps your body recognize that it's time for bed. I really need to be better at this. I've found some great over-the-counter sleeping pills that really help me to feel normal again - yay for Costco Sleepaid - because I sleep between six and eight hours uninterrupted (usually). I just have to make sure and take a break from the pills at least once or twice per week. Anyway, I think if I could regulate my sleep time better, I could get away from even taking sleeping pills?
I just love the quote above, that's all. The rest is just my own quick, un-edited babble
Along with approximately 5 million other Americans, I live my life with a Traumatic Brain Injury resulting from a car accident. This blog is a way to document my experience as I learn my physical, emotional, and neurological limits. I hope to help other TBI Survivors along the way.
I'd love to get your feedback (comments!)
