My sleep has not been great since menopause but I’ve always managed until now. I’ve tried all the suggestions for good “sleep hygiene”, offered by well intended physicians and friends who perhaps don’t have problems sleeping and they are minimally helpful. I can’t rely on sleeping pills as just about everything except Ativan is contraindicated on the 3 Mac medications. I know that I need to sleep well to get well!
I think I’ve developed some anxiety around sleep and I ruminate about it when I can’t sleep and/or when I wake up and get myself into such a state that I can’t fall asleep again.
Has anyone else experienced this and dies anyone have any suggestions?
