    Me! I will join you in the zombie club! My insomnia has been horrible. Either I can't fall asleep, or I wake up after a few hours and am up the rest of the night. It's like I am so overtired that I can't sleep. I feel your pain!

    For me, it also seems to be worse closer to when daylight saving changes are happening and the week before my period. I have been up early for weeks but can't go to bed earlier.

    Magnesium Glycinate seems to help me most nights, about 30 minutes before I want to go to bed.

    I'm with you all the way. Many nights have been spent on the sofa! I think I've seen every episode of Forensic Detectives this year, the 4am series! Thank God I have an understanding husband! Mother nature really screwed us women over!

    Benadryl helps me sleep well. Gaba supplements too are good for relaxation and sleep. I hope you feel better xo

    this is my life right now. i purchased a supplement online and it does seem to be helping. i actually have dreams again now. so I feel like it is helping me to sleep sounder. I still woke up at 3 am last night with a hot flash but went back to sleep easier. It's not a miracle drug, but definitely helping me and i will take any sleep i can get at the point. if you want to know the name of it, you can PM me. i found it on amazon and just took a chance.
