Update on my insomnia and restlessness

I wanted to thank everyone who took the time to post. I think I probably sounded a lot like "yes, but" which I ddidn't mean as a dismissal of all of your advice. I guess I was really hoping it would just get better.

It has improved somewhat in that the restlessness, jitteriness and agitation has gone away. I still wake up at 4:00 a.m....what the heck is so special at 4 in the morning, I ask? But at least I can actually stay in bed now. I don't feel like I HAVE to get up and MOVE like before. So maybe I'm at least getting some rest in the early hours. But this is getting tiring...and I can't nap. I love napping. :(

So, for now I am cutting out all caffeine ('cept what's in chocolate) and trying herbal tea. I may keep a thermos of chammomile by my bed for 4 a.m. to see if it helps me get back to sleep. And when I see my pdoc in a couple more weeks, I feel much more informed and ready to consult with her about the remaining insomnia thanks to all of your posts.

Thanks again!
