Sleepless in Raleigh

So tired, yet sleep will never come. Got to love that insomnia. It’s 4:30 am and my body has zero interest in shutting down. I don’t know that I would mind so much if I was at home. But of course not, I’m at a horse show. I have to be up and checked out of my hotel in the morning… And I have a 3.5 hour drive back to the barn, then an additional 45 mins home. Doesn’t look like sleep will be my friend this weekend.

Do any of you suffer from insomnia? I have tried just about everything. My doctor has me on Ambien. I’ve tried exercise, massage, mediation… I even purchased a weighted blanket which is supposed to help for people with anxiety (check), ADHD (check), insomnia (major check). I will say that the weighted blanket really does seem to help. I like it a lot, however it’s a bit of a pain toting it around with me to horse shows and what not. But worth it.

Do any of you have something you’ve found that works well for you? I’m always looking for quality suggestions.

You would think that after horse showing all day and being exhausted it would be so easy to lay down and go to sleep. But it never is. Even ager I take my migraine pill (thanks to my lack of hydration throughout the day leading to a migraine) which has a side effect of drowsiness… And my Ambien. NOTHING. Even with my weighted blanket. So here I am at 4:30 am just trying to reach out to other people who deal with this mess. Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks in Advance ~
