Chronic Monday: Sleep (Not!) - Some practical help in overcoming sleep disorders

I have the report of my sleep study and I've had the appointment with the rheumy who ordered it. Finally. I'm going to put it all online soon. I think you will find it very interesting.

You just have to laugh about it sometimes:

What do you get if you cross an insomniac agnostic with someone who has dyslexia?

A person who stays up at night wondering if there is a dog.

Made me laugh.

I found Shara Rendell-Smock's website, Go To Health! (Because Life's Too Short...),

Shara Rendell-Smock, author
because she used the same book I'm using, No More Sleepless Nights, by Dr. Peter Hauri of the Mayo Clinic. This book and the companion Workbook seem to be the Bible of sleep for the layperson.

I got them both, used and in excellent condition from Barnes and Noble for $5.88 each, including postage. Shara goes through all the common facets of sleep hygiene, and she put the Sleep Log from the first edition of the book online. I plan to do an updated Sleep Log, and will post it as soon as I finish it.

Here are the links to Shara's posts:

Practical Ways to Overcome Sleep Disorders, Part 1

Part 2

Part 3

Part 4

Link to Sleep Log - it's an Excel spread sheet.

Wishing you restful sleep and sweet dreams!


  1. hey Sherril! I was wondering if you'd gotten the results of your sleep study. It sure took them a long time to get them back to you. I'm looking forward to hearing what they discovered and whether you find it helpful or not. I've wondered whether or not I should do something like that too.

  2. Yes, I have the report and I will try to get it up this coming Monday.


  3. I hadn't heard of these resources. Thanks!
