Thank you, I just moved from Florida to Pennsylvania and my new medical doctor taking my cancer drug in the evenings. When I went to my oncologist a couple weeks ago, he suggested an anti anxiety drug. My medical and oncologist had me on sleeping pills for 2 years in Florida and I finally got off them several months ago. I guess I am afraid of getting addicted to the anxiety pills. When I have taken them, they do work really good. Thanks so much for your help, I will join the sleep challenge team. Connie emoticon

I thank God for being in control of my life and know I can trust Him. Praise God!

Hi Connie. Welcome to the team. Did you know that SP has a sleep challenge team. It is full of helpful ideas. It is a four week challenge and you get a trophy upon completing the challenge. Here is the link.

Does the Dr. who prescribes your psyche meds know you have sleep problems? I ask this because I have depression too, and my Dr. has me take certain medications at night because they induce sleep. One is hydroxyzine-generic for anti anxiety.

I hope you take part in the challenges and I hope to see you on the threads.

I love SparkPeople

Today is the first day of the rest of my life.

I am responsible for my own happiness.

My name is Bonnie

Welcome to our team Connie!

Huddle - the "huddle wall" scrolls on the right side of the screen. Just under that is a button that takes you to the huddle wall. We can click a shout out already in the list or create your own. You get a Sparkpoint for it too. ;)

emoticon FITTOBE2 - As long as I have been a member I am afraid I have never done much interaction except through this forum. I keep track of my food, exercise, read articles and look up recipes but not much more than that. I am not sure how to "huddle" or other communications.

I thank God for being in control of my life and know I can trust Him. Praise God!

I have been a Spark Member since October, 2010. After having breast and uterine cancer chemo and radiation in 2009, I started having sleeping problems. My oncologist and primary doctors both highly recommended sleeping pills and I took these till January of 2012. I was concerned about getting dependent on them so slowly weaned myself off of them. I am still only sleeping 3 or 4 days a week. I have tried over the counter Calms Forte sleep aid, etc. but I don't know if they are habit forming. They do help, but not sure if I should be taking them very often. Just very confused and unfortunately I was diagnosed with depression back in the 80's and have been on meds for that since, so just adds to the mix. I just joined this team hoping maybe I can find relief and ideas to help. emoticon

I thank God for being in control of my life and know I can trust Him. Praise God!
