Sleepless Burden

Posted by Shayla Simmons — 7 Mar 2013

Blood shot eyes, tired limbs, erratic behavior; mostly sums it up for an insomniac.  Is it the constant connection with cold technology that keeps us a distant friend to our dreams, or is it the demanding schedules and our work lives that leave us aching for bed - yet wide awake with disdain.  CNN reported in 2011 that insomnia cost the U.S. $63 billion in lost productivity annually.  No one should have to live with the inability to fall asleep, or wake up feeling tired.
