Speaking of My Stupid Thyroid Disease

I forgot to include in my last update on the Graves disease that I have weaned myself off of the sleeping pills. Yayyyy!!! And I definitely feel far less groggy during the day because my sleep is no longer drug induced. My bus man has even noticed a difference. :D

I still suffer with bouts of sleeplessness, and light sleep so I am looking into more natural alternatives to a good night's rest like white noise machines. Have you heard of these before?

I was reading about them both offline, and via the site I've linked to, and I feel this may be a good alternative to help me fall into a deeper state of sleep. They work by blotting out excess noise like the bus man's snoring, and by creating that humming sound that helps us nod off, like the running a vacuum near a restless baby trick.

I find on those nights where my sleep is poor or broken I am far more clumsy, forgetful, and yep crabby the next day. So to me it is worth checking out.

I also believe that sleep is a very important part of the healing process, and ultimately I really hope to achieve remission without joining the nuclear club if you know what I mean ;)

Re: white noise -- I had success with a little waterfall for a while. It was a gift from my mom. Frankly, at first I thought running water sound would make me want to pee! But it did lull to me sleep and I was grateful.

The Gal Herself -> Thanks so much! I too heard that the sound of water can be very soothing at night. :)

I can't sleep without white noise - I use an air cleaner - nice constant low level noise. My daughter always has a fan on - it's just too quiet otherwise. Good luck.
