It is horrible. I can't sleep. I am so tired. I yawn all day. I'm in a fog. I can't focus, but when I lay down in bed at night... I can't sleep. I can't turn off. My mind keeps going. I lay wide awake until midnight every night. I'm lucky if I get to sleep until 3 or 4am uninterrupted. Then by 5am I am wide awake again. Why is this happening? Last night Carter was in bed by 7pm, Ethan was in bed by 8pm, and there I was wide awake, trying to sleep, but not actually falling asleep until around midnight. I just need to sleep. This lack of sleep is causing anxiety. I have bags under my eyes. I am getting irritable. I really need to sleep.
Any recommendations? Herbs? Medications? Relaxation techniques? I am guessing some of this is related to my post partum anxiety. I am hoping it passes soon, but I need to find a way to get through it. I need to function.
