I’m really glad “I Love Lucy” comes on at 4 o’clock in the morning. It’s something to watch on those nights my body seems to think it’s still daytime. Most times I can get so sleep before 4 but I still wake up while “I Love Lucy” is on. It’s on for three hours every morning. I try different methods all the time but Insomnia is a tricky broad. I’ve taken Ambien, but try not to make it a habit since it can be an addictive product and your body can grow immune and you have to keep upping the dosage. Sometimes I put the TV on a timer and turn something boring on so I don’t feel the need to stay up because it’s so engaging. Sometimes I set a timer on the computer or phone and listen to an audio book until I fall asleep. Usually it’s some Janet Evanovich (Stephanie Plum series) book. Some people tell me they read until it makes them sleepy. I read but it doesn’t put me to sleep. I might get too tired to absorb what I’m reading, but it still doesn’t put me to sleep.
I wonder…what do other folks do to go to sleep?
