Product Review

I have insomnia.  The kind where I'll wake up in the middle of the night and be unable to fall back to sleep for hours.  When I have several nights of that in a row generally I turn to medicinally induced sleep by taking some Simply Sleep.  I've heard about this stuff call Mid Nite that is a natural sleep aid that you can take anytime, including the middle of the night.

I finally got some to try.  And, well, it's not as miraculous as I'd hoped it would be.  It doesn't actually put me back to sleep.  What it does is put me in a state that feels like I *could* fall asleep at any moment, but I don't.  So I lay there, aware that I'm not sleeping and yet not fully conscious, for the same amount of time I'd normally have been laying there awake.

So I guess that's better...sort of.  Maybe somehow in that asleep-ish state my body is getting some of the restoration it needs.  My brain isn't going 60 miles an hour thinking over who knows what, it's just thinking I'm not sleeping, I really wish I was sleeping.

I don't necessarily NOT recommend this product, but I can't truly recommend it either.

I'm the same way w/insomnia, but have yet to try any sleep aids because I really loathe medication (hello side effects!).
Did you get pierced yet? ;)

Nope, no piercing yet. I'm still thinking about it though. I don't have enough courage to just go for it yet!
