Hi honey, can I call you that? I guess that's what I want to call people when my heart's breaking for them and my mother hormones kick into overdrive.

I saw your next post and I know you wanted to erase the one I'm replying to. If it makes you feel even a wee bit better, I want to erase half of what I post here! But for the moment, I can't erase what I just read.

I've been starting to look at sleep deprivation as a source of some of my own woes. The last four nights I've taken Ambien and I have slept better than I have in years and I feel more "real" and in the moment, versus distracted and floaty.

I'm wondering if lack of sleep isn't impacting everything else in your life? Just last night, my fifteen year old son was remembering a time when he stayed up all night due to jet lag. His exact words were "I felt like a zombie" and then he shook his head as if to get rid of the cobwebs. He seemed really freaked out by the memory of that night.

I just looked up "sleep deprivation" because it's had such an impact on my own life lately. Look what I found:

"Sleep deprivation is a form of torture, causing both physical and psychological harm. The mere lack of sleep causes fatigue, psychological impairment, hallucinations, memory loss, inability to concentrate, disturbed motor skills, lethargy, depression"

Sienna, I think you are very, very tired and feeling really overwhelmed because of that exhaustion. I didn't realize how serious sleep deprivation can be until recently.

Take care of yourself, okay?

Lee
