    I know at times there are things in our lives that can cause us to be to very concerned...I don't want to use the word WORRY. I know I have had a times in my life when sleep would not come to me. But I can truthfully say, that I now have a peaceful uninterrupted sleep each night... There is nothing like a peaceful nights sleep. We may not
    pay much attention to this lack of sleep but there are dangers in sleep deprivation.

    Sleep has ALWAYS been my friend! I remember once in my entire life, when sleep did not come easily for me, and it was a most terrible experience. I can't imagine having such a problem regularly.

    Sleep and i are such good friends! ... :swings:

    This thread made me think of one of my most favorite songs ... which includes these lines ...

    Be careful how you touch her for she'll awaken
    And sleep's the only freedom that she knows

    I have never been a good sleeper, it began when I was in jr. high. When I was in the military it followed me. When I got older I would wake up.at 3 or 4 am for no reason. I did a juice fast,.and I had the best sleep ever. I work overnights now,and it is starting to creep up again. I guess it's time for the lemonade diet again....people said I was crazy, but it helped ALOT!

    You might have an iron deficiency...Lack of iron makes one tired....and causes Anemia. Also B12 vitamins are essential. If you eat only vegetarian that could be the cause.. Meat has the B12 in that cannot be found in vegetables ALONE. I know some may argue this but I have a friend who is vegetarian and he teaches Physics and Chemistry at one of our high schools and he says it is TRUE ALTHOUGH HE IS VEGETARIAN.

    Once you do not get adequate rest the body suffers. Sleep is just as vital as nutrition.

    my bone marrow does not process iron well any more. i am permanently anemic. i take supplements.
    i don't doubt the value of sleep and rest. i said that i cannot sleep, not that i didn't want to sleep.

    Sleep?
    You'll have to be a bit more specific in your question. What exactly is it? Is that that new dance the young people are doing nowadays? :10500:
    :thinking:
