I'd love to see you replace the sleeping pills with something like exercise, yoga or meditation (or all three).

Two or three times a week I would go and kick and punch and shout and stretch ... it was SO great to get all that stress out. I'd go after work then walk home, take a shower, relax and sleep like a log!

Answer:

He really hasn't said anything I just keep calling for more sleeping pills and he keeps perscribing me more. Its probebly stress from my job. I am in a lot better place mentaly than I was even a couple months ago. For a while there I felt like life was just kinda spinning completly out of control. I used to think life was so easy I guess I got an eye opener. I know the answer would be to find a different job one that doesn't consume me and there's a healthier enviroment but I really don't beleive that job exhists.
