I had a blood draw yesterday and see my nephrologist next Monday. I'm not expecting good news as my diet continues to be totally out of control.

Is it insomnia - you can't get to sleep - or is it that you can't stay asleep and wake in the middle of the night?

I used to have terrible insomnia - I would go for days with 2-3 hours of sleep. There are all kinds of suggestions on what to think about or not think about. None of them worked except this: when you breathe in, count one. Breathe out, count two. 1 pause 2 pause 1 pause 2 pause. It worked rally well for me!

Caroline - my doc put me on ambien short term - I get 8 hours of good sleep with NO side affects.

A little relaxation before bed helps - like reading, or listening to soft soothing music with the lights on low.

Its so nice to have such good friends on SP who are concerned about us. I wish we could all meet someday and have a SP party. This team is so supportive of CKD. and i love it.
I will look into this, thank you again.

OH Caroline,I am sorry about not being able to sleep.Have you tried Natural path herbs to help with sleep? I found that getting as much outdoor exercise seems to make me feel tired and I sleep well.Personally I take klonapin to help me fall and stay asleep for at least 6 hours.

Our friend EJ works at Super Supplements and may be able to make a suggestion from what her customers use,click this link below for Natural Health Information about Sleep and etc.;

Does any one have any suggestions for sleeping at night. I cant seem to get more than 4 to 6 hours of sleep at night. I have tried so many things. The Dr. gave me something to help me sleep, but i dont like the way it makes me feel so i dont take it.
Stress, also can raise your BP.

I can relate to with stress,I can feel my heart muscles tighten,stress is going to be around,we have to find ways to deal with and not allow it to hurt our bodies.I know easier said than done.I try to do something that I enjoy and keeps my mind off the stress.Like you Roses made some muffins and spent time with your niece.
Sometimes going for a walk with our dogs is helpful. emoticon emoticon
