Being unable to sleep is incredibly frustrating, plus it can make you feel miserable the next day. Here are 20 simple tips to fall asleep as fast as possible.
I visit the statue often.
Even though the statue is far from home.
I find myself standing alone in the darkness, in a clearing.
He is imposing in size, made of solid, immovable stone.
His heavy feet stand in a place that was likely a house..a foundation weathered into a clearing long ago.
I approach the statue.
I often wonder what he's looking at in the distance. Or maybe he's not looking at anything. It's hard to tell. On my toes, I balance myself to stare into his unmoving eyes.
I slide my hand over his smooth, cool arm. I pull myself to it, momentarily find comfort despite its lack of response.
I knock on his chest, the sound is hollow, thunderous even.
I press my ear against his stone chest...imagining he might be crawled up inside somehow. I listen quietly, almost sure I hear a heartbeat.
I hear nothing.
I can't remember how long this statue has been there.
It seems like days, but just as likely, years.
But I remember the night I realized I was too late.
All at once I noticed his feet had been hardened into place. I ran to him. Why couldn't he hear my screams to tell him he was changing?
He doesn't hear me even though he nods at me. How long has he been unable to hear me?
I sobbed, wrapping my arms around him.
I pleaded to his deaf ears as I felt his body turn to stone, cold, pressed against mine.
I looked up at him, desperate to find his familiar, blue gaze.
It was too late, his eyes were already fixed.
It was done.
When I visit him, I wrap myself around him. My eyes squeezed tightly, I try to will those stone arms to hold me.
Maybe my love will be enough.
But those heavy arms never move.
I visit the statue often.
I press my face against his smooth cheek.
I whisper to him about my life, ask him for his thoughts, and cry in his stone lap when I'm sad.
At times, I think he can hear me, but I can't be sure.
Although I know he's a statue, I still think my love can be enough.
I hold him and hope for one day, to feel him stir in my arms.
I visit him, often even though it's far from home.
Hey you. It's late. https://www.sleepfoundation.org/sleep-disorders-problems/trauma-and-sleep
Stress from a traumatic event can often lead to a variety of sleep problems. When the body is overstimulated, the brain is flooded with neurochemicals that keep us awake, such as epinephrine and adrenaline, making it difficult to wind down at the end of the day. The neurochemicals remain present in....
Prolonged exposure isn't a treatment. It's how we got here. Thanks? https://www.webmd.com/mental-health/what-are-treatments-for-posttraumatic-stress-disorder#1
When you have PTSD, it might feel like you'll never get your life back. But it can be treated. Therapy and medications can work very well and are often better together.
Ironically.. I don't remember where I found this link: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3182004/

A huge failure in the Veteran community has been not focusing enough on the traumatic brain injury (TBI) that often accompanies PTS. No one talks about it- it just happens at families while they are busy fighting the emotional symptoms of trauma. Families fearlessly face PTS, but are never told to look behind them and the silent enemy. There's no road map for this. Although many of you walk it, there isn't even a road. But you're not alone.

Aw!! Remember when Fort Polk PR team put us on a bus to meet the governor? You had us all lined up there shaking your hand, telling us all about all the great jobs you were providing a spouses in the military. Was I supposed to get a newsletter or something? Or was I supposed to just be excited that I was in a photograph with you as you lied? You had a good handshake though..Until I asked you what you were doing for spouses. That’s when they put us on the bus and took us back to the base. #bobbyjindal I hope you go for the presidency! I’d be so excited to share my experience meeting you, and the very nervous PR team. Aw. Look how cute we are. Us little wives in the newspaper like big kids. 😍
#walterreedsociety Please let me know if you would like me to resend my cost-efficient proven care plan for veterans and family members with posttraumatic stress. You didn’t care so much about it last year, with your goal on treating one couple at a time....Although $50,000 for 12 couples “bridging the gap” doesn’t seem so accurate, none of us seem to be doing so hot. Just saying. Let us know if you want to chat, we always want to hear from you! Always nice to know you still think of us!
Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, I submitted a proposal to the president of the Walter Reed society for review last year- we partnered with them on retreats previously. The proposal was a very detailed and proven community based model for continued care. Not the shell retreat programs that cost a fortune, and have left most participants worse than before. The society was not interested. So IW removed ourselves from being affiliated with what we found was a fiscally irresponsible shell program. Let me know if you’re interested in seeing those emails sometime! I believe the response was, their focus would remain treating one couple at a time. I’ll let you know when they call me and my husband. We’re hoping we’re next! #pts #supportourveterans #yourfriendsnotmine
This is tragic. These supporters dedicated to helping Veterans should NEVER have met this fate. The other side of me- the side you won’t like- wonders, what the f**k? Because SOMEONE must of known there was still work to do. Why was he turned away- where was he turned to? This is why #continuingcare is critical for people with no where to go. It’s sad, it’s devastating. For everyone involved. #veterans #pts **note my spouse just left “treatment”- and has never been worse. Friends have left programs, and been worse than before. Programs don’t rehabilitate people- continued community care does.
Authorities say three women who devoted their lives to helping traumatized vets were killed by an ex-patient.
