Wow! What a wonderful accomplishment! It's not always easy to ask for help. I hope that you continue to accomplish your goal.

It's VERY difficult as well as frustrating, when sleep alludes you. We all need sleep to rest our brains and rejuvenate.

I never had an issue with sleep, until I was injured on the job. That was 17 years ago.

Keep your chin up. You can do it! Please don't hesitate to reach out.
