Sleep Problems

Can't seem to get sleep at night. I don't know if it's related to the flare up. How long do flare ups last anyways? I'm beginning to think they start out small and peak and then subside. I don't know what I would do without the pain meds. I don't like that aspect, but it is what it is.

I take something to help me sleep and it's not working. Gonna try developing a regime to lull myself to a peaceful sleep.

I am hoping it works tonight. Second day on 3 hours sleep. Seems my mind and body doesn't calm down until midnight, then I'm up at 3AM.

Tried music, warm showers, tea and doing what I can to walk outside. I did laundry today and nearly passed out from anxiety and pain.
