Sometime during midlife our internal clocks somehow get mixed up. You’re sleepy when you need to be awake and are awake when you need to be sleeping. What’s going on here? Who turned my body clock upside down? You are tired at the end of the night and are ready and willing but the body is not able. I thought it was just because I have a few dozen things on my mind. I handled that and STILL sleep eluded me.
I think that’s why Zombie movies are so popular, they seem to be based on insomnia. You don’t sleep well and can’t seem to catch up on any rest. The last full nights’ sleep seems to be a distant memory. You still need to be a responsible citizen, engage with others, hold down a job, take care of a family, interact with friends, grocery shop, do laundry, and all sorts of tasks and deadlines are involved. That’s all hard enough to do on a good day, never mind after a few sleepless nights. Yup! That’s where the origin of the zombie movies must have come from. I know when I don’t sleep, I sure as heck feel like one. Think about it, you look and feel terrible and you can be incoherent. You moan and groan, whether its audible to anyone else is beside the point. You have an irritable ‘out of it’ kind of demeanor, and you drag yourself around. Zombie, I tell ya!
After about a year of this nonsense I discovered what I call ‘A MAGIC PILL.’ That’s what it seems like, anyway. It’s called FEMMENESSENCE. I felt calmer after taking the first one – though that may have been mind over matter. I gave it try because it was a natural product and doesn’t have hormones or hormone replacement anything in it. The magic ingredient is MACA- good stuff! Although I am relaxed (calm really) I have energy and can get things done like I used to. By the end of the night I am able to SLEEP! I missed it more than I thought I did. I even went to sleep with a smile on my face J My understanding is that this natural ingredient helps support the systems in your body that deal with hormones and they are more able to readjust or ‘do their thing’ like they should. The product comes with a telephone number and hotline for all your questions and concerns. I have to see if they need a spokesperson for it – maybe I can volunteer. It even seems to “calm my crazy.”
What’s in your toolbox to fix this problem? Have you had any positive or negative experiences with any product?
