Quote from Nurse Ratched
Your bedroom should be for sleep and sex
. Nothing else. If you have a TV in there, move it out. Reading and other activities make your body associate bed with things that aren't sleep and makes it harder for you to go to sleep.
Wish I could afford to get a place of my own so that I could have my own study room and then bedroom. But its okay, i dont think having my work actually there in the same room while i sleep affects me any more than usual. In fact, i think its a comfort. I feel everythings close by.
Thanks for the Rxes guys. Sorry, I know you guys all come here to talk about nursing, not to nurse and doctor other people off the job. I really appreciate it.
I've made a plan to sleep better and here's what I'm planning to try in this order:
1) tylenol pm (cheapest and easiest to find)
2) valerian root(two people attested to it and its otc)
3) dig into emergency money to go to the doctor and ask for a generic brand sleeping drug (the ambien or dramamine)
No, marypush, I dont mind suspecting myself being depressed or ocd. Its a helpful thought. I think finding the right pill to help me sleep better will help these symptomes the best. Ive gotten antidepressants when I had good insurance. Like a lot of people, antidepressants made me feel cooky. Thanks for your concern.
Thanks for all the suggestions. Ill write back and tell u guys what works best if ure interested in knowing.
