Exhausted but Unable to Sleep

I’ve had trouble sleeping for as long as I can remember. My mother tells me my whole life. I’m constantly tired because of my MS and when I get a chance I nap.

By the time I get into bed at night all I want to do is sleep. I have numerous medications for sleeping, pills to keep my nerves from being assholes, pills for back pain, pills for my spastic legs, other pills for things I can’t remember right now and cream for back pain.

You would think I’d have no problem falling asleep with all that assistance, and yet here I am, on my phone because while I’m exhausted and yawning I’m not “sleepy” yet. Usually I can listen to podcasts or play a matching game and that will help.

It can’t just be me, my husband falls asleep easily and my boys struggle some days (probably thanks to my genes).

Do you have issues sleeping or getting your kids to sleep? What works, I’m hoping for suggestions to try.
