Tonight is a Lunesta Night

OK, so I mentioned about a week and a half ago that I’ve started using sleep aids.  I’ve only taken them twice so far.  I don’t want to be addicted to them.  The thing is, I kind of have to plan ahead to use them.   I’m afraid to take it unless I know for sure that I’m going to be able to sleep at least 8 hours.  I’m just trying to use them to catch up on sleep about once per week.

The pills I’m using are Lunesta.  I really like it, so far.  I was always afraid to take sleeping pills, because I was afraid that they would drop me like one of those bears you see being darted on the news.   It’s not like that at all.  It very gently lowers me into a nice comfortable sleep.  It definitely doesn’t feel like normal falling asleep, but it’s not like I feel like I’ve been hit over the head with something either.

And when I wake up in the morning, it’s almost exactly the reverse.  It’s the slow rising up.   It’s not like I suddenly spring awake or like I have to pull myself out of a cave of sleep, either.  It’s just gentle.

The one side effect, though, is that I wake up with this very strange bitter taste in the back of my mouth, and I have cotton mouth all the next day.    It could be worse, I think.
