Wait on the hormone thing!

I'm peri-menopausal, and my worse issue was with sleep. I wasn't sleepy when I was supposed to sleep, and I was tired when I should be awake. When I did fall asleep, I didn't sleep well. I was awake often.

It was all related to my estrogen levels. I won't take hormone replacement, but I had to have rest. My solution is melatonin and Benadryl. The Benadryl makes me sleepy and helps with itchy, crawly skin. The melatonin has helped normalize my body clock.
