Sleep is highly underrated

The worst thing in the world is to try to sleep and not to. ~F. Scott Fitzgerald

I love that quote! F. Scott Fitzgerald speaks with complete accuracy. I totally don't understand these people who say they don't need very much sleep, they can get by on six hours or less per night. I mean, c'mon! The human body needs sleep to operate. In effect, I feel like I haven't been operating very well for the last like 14 years. I've tried and tried to sleep better - orthopedic pillows, diet, exercise, and all of this helped some, but not enough. The real kicker in my search for a better sleep is AMBIEN. I know I've blogged about this before, but it's 9:30 P.M and I'm so tired, have such a craving for sleep, that I just took my Ambien sleeping pill and my eyes are drooping and starting to blur. So, away, I must go to my pillow and have sweet dreams (I've been dreaming more with Ambien with means I'm sleeping deeper). I feel like an entirely new woman now that I usually get a normal, deep sleep at night. I'm so happy. This brings me to one more quote:

The best bridge between despair and hope is a good night's sleep. ~E. Joseph Cossman

Sweet Dreams!

Sleep is great, I love it, don't get enough of it (at least I figure that is why I am tired) I love dreaming too! Even the really weird dreams. YEAH SLEEP!
