I recently joined the sleep challenge. I now get into bed before I fall asleep on the couch and stumble into bed - even if it is just 9:00. But what can I do about my broken sleep when my son with Crone's disease wakes me up because he is so sick he needs to go to the hospital? These last few weeks have been especially difficult for him due to a change in medication. I have not let the stress drive me to the vending machine as I wait in the ER although it is tempting. On the other hand, I consider myself extremely fortunate that he is living at home with his wife and their beautiful 7 month old baby. I guess I just have to realize that sometimes challenges are just that and you have no control over certain aspects of your life.
