It is supposed to calm me to sleep and keep me asleep.
Since my son has been born I have developed insomnia. He goes through really bad sleep regressions. He isn’t a naturally great sleeper either. It isn’t uncommon for him to wake me up every hour in the middle of the night. Sometimes he wakes up and screams for 1.5 hours straight. Other times he will go a four hour stretch and not make a peep. The uncertainty is awful for me. I get so stressed when it is time for bed. I know I need to fall asleep quickly in order to feel rested the next day. I just get too nervous and end up staying awake all night long. Then I am taking care of a baby and feeding him in the downtime. A friend of mine has strongly recommended relying on cannabis at night. Apparently a little THC can go a long way with helping you sleep. At first I thought I would need to smoke a joint in order to feel the effects. I now have learned that I can simply take a tincture, which is an oil that goes under my tongue. I can put a few drops in my mouth before bed and fall right asleep. It is supposed to calm me to sleep and keep me asleep. I am a bit nervous to try it. What if I don’t wake up when my son cries? What if it doesn’t work? That would be super devastating. I think I will need to tag in my husband on the night I try the tincture. I am hopeful the oil just helps me fall asleep quicker and doesn’t affect my thinking too much.
