I need sleep...zzzzzz

Tuesday, October 30, 2018

Ever since the whole issue with the Prozac, I've been in a desperate search for a good night's sleep. The first night without Prozac I slept like a baby, but I also went to the chiropractor that afternoon (like I did just an hour ago).

But the flopping, tossing, and turning started again, along with the achy back. The good news is that the akathisia did not return. Just sleeplessness and back pain. I would get up and do yoga to get a little more sleep, but it was getting crazy.

This morning, I got tired of it, and got up at 6am (I don't start work until 9:30, and I work from home). I spent two hours researching why I was sinking into a hole in my 2 month old mattress. I decided to go to Menard's and pickup 1 x 3's, and my dad came over with his saw during my lunch hour. My original thought was to add slats to provide more support.

When my dad and I pulled the mattress off, what we found shocked me. The box spring was sturdy and did not need extra support. In fact, it was solid. So, now I have 1 x 3's that have to be returned.

So, I called the mattress store where I purchased it, and low and behold, there is a comfort guarantee. I am getting a firmer mattress to replace the one I purchased. Yea! When I get off work, I'm going over there to choose the perfect firmness, and hopefully tomorrow, I'll be sleeping perfectly.

    The firmer mattress should definitely help. You shouldn't be sinking into a new mattress.

    Good luck

    Did your chiropractor tell you to drink a LOT of water after an adjustment? It is Adjustment 101 to know. The release of lactic acid in your body after manipulation will make you sore and achy over and above normal. Same with any massage as well. Hope this helps. My daughter takes melatonin to sleep.
