Mark has had a chest cold for the past week. It's not getting better. At the same time, he's not so sick that he stays in bed.
I've started lifting weights, stretching and exercising. I find that if I regularly do so, then I sleep well.
For RO, sleep is a constant battle. If he takes sleeping pills he still wakes up for a few hours in the middle of the night. If he doesn't take sleeping pills then he tosses and turns all night. He'll finally fall asleep from exhaustion at around six in the morning.
For a long time I've tried to help RO sleep better. But, to little or no success.
