Is this normal? Is anyone else having these problems or is it just my hormones adjusting to the new IP? Even melatonin is not helping..... argh..... where is the sandman?????
On a Happy note, I reached my third goal, to weigh less than my husband who has weighed the same for the last 32 years we have been together. I have weighed more than him for the past 20 years. Yessir! This makes me happy! Next goal, reach the 170s before my 25th wedding anniversary in May.
Have you tried Melatonin??? I swear by it. The only time I wake up now is to pee. (I am pre-menopausal)
As for dreams, yes it is very common. I still have them but are so used to them now, I get upset when I wake up, wanting to know what the ending is.
