I really need your prayers.
I am a severe insomniac.
Part of the problem is just being almost 7 months pregnant and super uncomfortable, but part of the problem is that I lack the chemicals in my brain that let me sleep soundly each night.
I refuse to take prescription sleep aids because I believe that a combination of natural supplements are the answer, plus getting to bed at just the right threshold for sleep.
I use several different essential oils and my perinatologist just gave me the okay to use a chewable supplement that I had been taking but didn't think I should take in pregnancy until I could talk to him about it. He gave me the okay and I'm super glad because it really does help.
Sleep is incredibly important to me. I desperately need a good night's sleep. I get probably between 50 to 70 of good sleep a month.
Living in a sleep deprived state is not fun, for me or my family. My husband worries about me as I toss and turn and fidget during the night. Bad things happen to me if I do not get 5 or 6 hours of sleep per night.
So, I'm asking you to lift me up in prayer.
I know that my Father is the soother of my soul. I know that He has sent the Holy Spirit to calm and comfort me. I know that He can restore and make new and give me those essential and absolutely necessary chemicals in my brain that I need to sleep. I need His supernatural help in this area.
I know I've asked for a lot in the past few months, but I'm asking for just one more thing: pray for sleep for me.
Thank you and I love you all!!!
